Adrenaline Lacrosse: Top Club Programs in the West Face-OffFrom Press Releases November 4th, 2010 1
Casa Grande, AZ—The SunDevil Sizzler, which is the first of Adrenaline’s new Tournament Series events, will feature the best of the best in club programs in the West.
“It is going to be great to watch these highly skilled teams play against each other on great fields, with an exciting environment and the beautiful backdrop of the Arizona Desert mountain ranges,” says Adrenaline President Alex Cade.
These programs include western powerhouse and Adrenaline Shootout champion Brady’s Bunch, thought by many to be the #1 club team in the West outside of the undisputed West Coast Starz travel team, which pulls the cream of the crop from each area in the West.
Program Director Mike Wein looks to keep his winning streak going by taking another championship title. The words clean “Clean Sweep” are rumored to have been uttered and the bulls-eye is no doubt on the backs of Brady’s Bunch. Other attending programs include the shootout runners up Las Vegas Starz, the NorCal Braves which features the top players from northern California and the LaxDawgs, the top southern California team. AZ Burn, the best of Arizona’s talented crop, South Sound Starz is top program in the Northwest and the OC Crush comes in as the strongest of the Orange County programs.
“When most of the top programs and talented players in the West sign up for these events you know you are doing something right. I am thrilled to have added an event where these top teams can square off and really push the skill level of their players with stiff competition. This type of competition is what drives the western player to higher levels of lacrosse quickly.” said Cade.
Beyond this competition NCAA D1 runners-up University of Notre Dame will be on hand to hold their highly regarded Irish Coaching Clinic Series. The two part seminars and clinics allow high school level coaches to absorb high level collegiate strategies and drills in addition to helping younger or newer coaches enhance their knowledge. The ATS serves as the exclusive venue for the Irish Coaching Clinics in the West.
Rory Doucette, who has coached every level from the youth level up to the NCAA level, explains, “Most people realize that the development of the game has strategically evolved over the recent years and the pioneers of this movement are found in the NCAA coaching ranks. This opportunity to learn the new aspects of the game from NCAA minds such as Kevin Corrigan and Gerry Byrne will provide a great strategic advantage to those coaches who attend. I plan on being front and center as I’m sure most other coaches do as well.”
The overall vibe will be thoroughly enhanced by corporate heavy hitter sponsors Warrior, Brine, Powerade, SKLZ, ADRLN Movement & New Balance to help provide a tournament venue and experience that will be second to none. The Casa Grande resort and Golf club has pristine fields ready for play, and with the Adrenaline touches and the sponsors present it will surely be the best playing venue in the West.
“There is nothing better than playing on a high quality surface that is decked out to be a first class event field. We get excited, players get excited and it adds a different level to the competition” Rory Doucette.
Also on hand will be an activities focused and extensive vendor village which will host a blend of food, retailers and other industry vendors for participants and spectators. For a portion of the evening, the participating kids will be able to have a hands-on, on the field and under the lights playing experience with the attending MCLA players through a slew of contests and will also be eligible to receive prizes. Media partners Inside Lacrosse and West Side Lax will also be providing coverage of the event online so that spectators not able to make the trip can check scores.
