2018 Summer Travel Team Tryout Overview - See 2018 Invitation Letter
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 2017 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 "The importance of your Club Lacrosse team is immeasurable, especially in the NCAA recruiting process. When we talked to parents about our move back to Cleveland everyone in the lacrosse community was familiar with Burning River, the calibre of the teams they put together and the quality of events BR attended. As our son went through the process, sometimes playing with other local clubs that were closer to where we lived, it was clear that the Woody and his team drew coaches from some of the best schools and exposed all the players to the some of the best tournaments in the country—that other clubs were not doing. Our son loves playing for BR lacrosse. The friends he made and the enjoyment he received from playing on a talented team against talented competitors fueled his desire to play college lacrosse. I am particularly grateful for the support from the BR team off the field and the knowledge that was shared with us as we continue to go through the recruiting process has been invaluable. Finally, it doesn’t mater how good a player is, if you’re NOT at the right tournament the coaches will never see that player. This is what sets BR apart from other programs."
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.”
