  • 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 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.

    5. Bus all trays and clean all tables.

    2017 Video

    We will make arrangements with a professional videographer to video our games at this tournament.  Each player will receive access to these videos.  We have done this to help with your college recruiting since every college coach is going to ask you for a highlight tape to determine if you are someone they want to recruit.  This way you have highlight tapes to send that:

    • are professionally done
    • are against known national teams (coaches don’t have to guess if the team you are playing is any good).
    • highlight solid fundamental skills, athleticism and team play.

    The cost of these videos are included in the cost of the tournament.

    Your play on the tapes
    Everything you do (good or bad) at these games is on the DVDs.  If you chase sticks on defense it is there.  If you did not hustle after a GB it is there.  If you caught a pass off your helmet it is there.  The same holds true for all our opponents players.  In addition, they do not get to make a decision as to whether or not these DVDs are going to be sent out to college coaches.  All their good and bad plays are being sent to the college coaches whether they want the coaches to see it or not.

    You need to remember this when you are playing this Summer.  You never know who is taping a game or who is in the stands.  You do not know where they are going to send the tape.  Therefore always play to your full potential.  More players than you can imagine are “discovered” by a coach watching a tape of someone else (I get these phone calls every year).  On the other side more than a few players each year have coaches lose interest in them after watching a tape of them that someone else sent. 

    Take advantage of the first situation and make sure the 2nd never happens to you.
