  • 2013 Travel Team Tournament Refund / Cancelation Policy

    1. Travel / Tournament team refunds will only be granted on the basis of medical emergencies / conditions and then only if we are able to find a replacement player.  IF WE CAN NOT FIND A REPLACEMENT PLAYER NO REFUND WILL BE GRANTED.
      1. Please understand that this is because lodging (Dorms, Hotels, etc.), transportation (Bus, Plane, etc.) and event (Camp, Tournament, etc.) fees are paid in advance and are not refunded to Burning River Lacrosse if you do not attend.
    2. If there is a valid medical emergency/condition and we can find a replacement player, we will provide a full refund less a $100 substitution / administrative fee.
    3. Refund requests (medical emergencies / conditions only) must be in writing and a letter / documentation from a medical professional (doctor or hospital of record) must accompany the written request verifying the medical emergency / condition.

    Playing Time Policy

    We do not take players to tournaments so that they can sit or help with our finances.  If you were selected for the team, you have talent and you need to showcase that talent.  To that end, all players who attend a tournament play in the games.  Game time is normally allocated in a fairly even manner with all players rotating in and out during the course of a game.  The exception to this is in the last quarter of close games / games with a tough opponent at recruiting tournaments when we have to win to move on.  Under those circumstances playing time will not be evenly distributed.

    Expected Behavior

    You are considered to be an ambassador for both Burning River Lacrosse (specifically) and Northern Ohio lacrosse (in general).  Therefore, all normal team travel rules are in effect concerning your behavior and actions and the resulting consequences (if you do not know what these rules are ask first). Please be aware of the following rule

    • Players may not leave the dorm / hotel or tournament area without the permission of a BR STAFF DIRECTOR – even if you are with your parents.
    • Any player who violates this rule will be sent home immediately.
    • The coaches should not have to scramble to find you because you decided to leave with your parents/family.
    • Refunds are not granted in cases of player dismissal.


    2013 Summer Travel Teams Overview

    Our travel team players and their parents can depend on us to provide them with coaching, guidance, encouragement and support during the entire college recruiting process.  Unlike some other Travel Team Club programs Burning River Lacrosse has a proven track record when it comes to helping players reach their college lacrosse goals (see player commitments).  This is because we provide:

    • top level instruction including individual, small group and team practices designed in conjunction with the top college coaches and programs,
    • honest feedback on your son’s progress and ability both academically and athletically,
    • knowledge of the complicated recruiting process including GPA & ACT/SAT requirements, timelines, coaches preference, and college fit,
    • personal relationships and access to college coaches at all levels that allow us to speak with coaches, who trust our judgment, about your son,
    • personal and individual help including 1 on 1 meetings, calls to college coaches, and video work,
    • college recruiting night with college coaches,
    • college selection night with a panel of former players and  parents who have been through the process,
    • access to Burning River Alumni who are at or have attended over 55 different college programs.
    • Highlight video review, feedback and posting, and
    • college recruiting booklet with detailed information on the process, timelines, and examples of letters, calls, and questions.


    Travel Team Testimonials (Read All Testimonials)

    "With Hogan we chased the “best” opportunities for college exposure through 'a Columbus based program' and 'a Cleveland based program'. Although 'good' programs, neither of these organizations provided the honest feedback, college recruiting guidance or the attention to our son in developing his game..."  Harris Family - 2012 Graduate

    There is only one organization we have to thank for James being recruited by UVA and that is Burning River. Without Woody and the team behind him it would not have been possible.."  Dahlheimer Family - 2012 Graduate

    "The personal attention and individual coaching that you and your assistant coaches provide to ALL your players is truly a witness to your commitment to share your LAX knowledge with others. Josh has played for other club/tournament teams in the past but none have provided the same level of competition or the exposure that Burning River provides..." Kuehn Family - 2013 Graduate

    "Burning River Lax has made all the difference in our son’s lacrosse experience. I can’t speak highly enough of what Coach Calleri and his program has done for the success of our son...”  Brady Family - 2013 Graduate

    "There is nothing that can prepare your son for High School or College level lacrosse more effectively than Burning River Lacrosse..." Hartong Family - 2014 Graduate

    "I have nothing but great things to say about Coach Woody Calleri, his staff and the Burning River Lacrosse Program. Woody and his staff do so many great things for these boys.... When he tells you he will go out of his way for your son. He means it..." Galosi Family - 2013 Graduate

    2013 Summer Travel Team - Practice and Tournament Schedules

    Tentative practice and tournament schedules for each of our summer travel teams are available below:

    Please come to practice prepared to work. The instruction will be intense, in small groups (att, mid, def, goalies) and geared towards helping the attendees get ready the the Summer Tournaments.  The instruction will be given by some of the top area coaches and Burning River Lacrosse alumni who are playing in college.  It will be based on the practices that some of the top college coaches in Division 1, 2, and 3 (e.g. Salisbury, Roanoke, NYIT, Syracuse, Maryland, Hobart) have helped us organize and have used themselves to guide their teams to the success they have had in the NCAA playoffs. 



    Directions To The Practices

    The practice / skills sessions will be held at Broadview Heights Recreation Center (Rec Center).  The fields are located at 9543 Broadview Road.  For complete directions click on the directions button (Under Home) or this link
