Tournament Opportunities:
As the program continues to grow, we realize that many of our Cougars players are interested in traveling and attending tournaments to face out of area competition and possibly be seen by recruiters. We intend to bring the Elite team to 2-3 tournaments this upcoming winter, depending on commitment and attendance to these events. These tournaments would be an additional fee (Cost = $175 which would include a hotel for 2 nights):  

D.W. Lacrosse Fall Tournament
St Mary's College, Moraga, CA
November 6th - 7th

Sin City Showdown
UNLV, Las Vegas, NV
December 11th - 12th
Sand Storm Tournament
Empire Polo Fields, Palm Desert, CA
January 15th - 16th
*If you are interested in attending any of these tournaments, please let me know in advance. Players who make the Elite team(s) will have priority spots on the travel team.

West Coast Starz:
As a part of the Cougars program, you are eligible to be nominated for West Coast Starz. If you are unfamiliar with West Coast Starz, the goal of this team and program is to provide players with the opportunity to play at the collegiate level and bring this team to the best recruiting events both on the East as well as West Coast. We will be selecting a 2012 team as well as 2013 team for WCS. There will be a combine/tryout immediately following Starz Cup for this team, and players who make the team will attend the following recruiting events during the 2011 Summer:  

All American Showcase - Capital Cup
Germantown, MD
June 17th - 19th

Adrenaline Showcase
Santa Barbara, CA
July 8th - 10th  

This is a great opportunity if you are looking to take your game to the next level and continue on past high school lacrosse. We have already had 4 girls from last summer's WCS team commit to Division 1 College Programs. Please let me know if you are interested in this opportunity, so you can be nominated following Cougars tryouts!
