FOUR TEAMS. FOUR GOLD MEDALS?
Ever the optimists, we're hoping the world opens back up so we can return to Australia to defend our 2019 gold medal when we beat Japan and the Aussie U19 national team.
Australian lacrosse uses our teams to expose their national teams to the speed and physicality of the North American style. Each of our teams will play in a tournament against two Australian national teams (maybe three now that Ireland and Towson are postponed) as well as whichever Asia-Pacific countries send teams...invariably Japan and/or New Zealand and sometimes Hong Kong and Korea. This year the Aussies have asked us to bring them four teams:
MEN'S & WOMEN'S -- for rostered college players from freshmen up through twenty-somethings who still play at a good level (we could certainly use some of that extra maturity
against the Aussie national teams)
BOYS & GIRLS -- specifically, high school seniors from the class of 2021 who are legit recruits that will be playing college ball . . . this is not for everybody, sorry; pretenders get found out real quick once the games begin and no one wants that
We expect the tour to be the first two weeks of July and will travel to Sydney (4 nights for practice and time zone acclimation) and then to Melbourne (7 nights for the tournament). Parents are welcome!
