2017 Canadian BOX Travel Team Tryout Overview
Burning River Lacrosse’s travel teams were founded in 2006 to showcase Northern Ohio lacrosse players who are highly skilled but also of high character. Unlike other travel teams that only accept coaches' recommendations, Burning River Lacrosse holds tryouts so that every player with an interest can showcase his talent and make a case for making the team. As a result, our players are not primarily from 1 or 2 teams but are from numerous programs. In fact, our 2016 teams had players from over 50 Northern Ohio schools.
Why Should My Son Play For Burning River? - Our Parents And Area Coaches Say It Best
To quote one local parent "My son loved every minute of it, including practices. I would pick him up from 3 hours of practice in 95 degree heat, and ask him how it was- every time he'd say, "AWESOME!".
To quote one local parent “Burning River’s staff has help us every step of the way. They have called coaches to be our son’s advocate, guided our son’s lacrosse improvement and guided us through the admissions process. I don’t know what we would have done without their help and advice.”
To quote one local high school coach “I have never seen anyone work as hard to get my players into college as Coach Calleri has. He has called numerous college coaches, provided the players and their families with feedback, laid out a timeline of things the player needs to do and helped guide them through the process. My kids would not be where they are today if Burning River Lacrosse wasn’t as proactive as they are.”
