Knights Lacrosse UK Elite Travel team

Postby Wacs10 Fri Sep 18, 2009 12:09 pm

Knights Lacrosse UK Elite Travel team U16

This is still in planning stages:

Knights Lacrosse Uk Elite Travel team is something I have been thinking about for a few years now and I am planning on entering a team into the U16 World Games Tournament next year. I hope this will be the debut of an Elite Travel team that will go on to enter showcase US Summer Recruitment tournaments and play against the top travel teams and players in the US such as Baltimore Crabs, CNY Roadhawks, Long Island Express, NH Tomahawks & Topgun.

The Knights would use the same model as the already successful Summer travel/Elite teams in the US, this will help to improve UK players by receiving Elite UK based coaching (at each position including Faceoff) and playing against the best competition in the UK, Europe, America and Canada. You will also be playing in showcase tournaments in front of College Coaches from DI, DII & DIII teams.

This will start as an U16 team but will be an U18/U19 team in future years and will give players the opportunity to play at a high level even if they miss out at playing in a World Games at U19 level (we would not tour the US in the same year as an U19 World Games).

The Team would hold tryouts and is open to any players from England, Scotland, Wales & Europe.
Practice would then be held before the games in the Manchester area.

If you are playing U16 lacrosse this year you would qualify to play in next years Tournament for the knights, id just like to gage who would be interested in playing for the team and then will progress on this basis.

What do you think of the idea?, would you be interested in improving your Fitness, Speed and agility, Technique, stickwork and experience?. To play in the US against the best players in the country at your age group and maybe even get recruited by a US high School or College?

Also in the Bahamas apparently, and of course you cannot forget Japan. (Edit - I forgot Texas and New Orleans).

Apologies. But you did ask, and we answered, and each answer was 100% correct.

Back on topic, it does sound like a great idea, and I wish something like this was around when I was a kid. But, who's going to fund it? I assume the kid's parents will be asked to front the bills?

Re: Knights Lacrosse UK Elite Travel team

Postby Wacs10 Mon Jul 05, 2010 10:41 am

English Knights Elite will be travelling to the USA in the summer of 2011 to attend All American Lacrosse Camp 4 days, the camp runs from 9am to 10 pm and is an amazing instructional camp with daily games in a D1 Stadium at Colgate University a team price will be negotiated and no profit will be made from this by Knights staff, we then plan to play in the Gait cup in historical Gettysberg this is an Elite Travle team tournament and we will play the best teams and players the US has to offer.

The philosophy of this team is to provide US style coaching and instruction at the camp for UK based players, to improve our players by playing better comeptition and to expose the talent the UK has to offer to US college & high school coaches. we will produce bios for each player to provide to coaches attending the tournament and camp.

We will also try and provide a educational experience for the players in the places we visit.

Some playes have already been invited to join the team and the outlook for the 1st year that this will be a 15 man squad initially, we are looking for talented athletes (aged 16-18) to join the team and this may mean people that have not been playing a long time or have huge experience. Further information will be posted soon on this site.

This team is not connected to England or national squads.

Thanks
HEAD, HEART HUSTLE.
