Travel Team Tournament Refund / Cancelation Policy
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.
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

2017 Practice - How Is Practice Structured?
Our ‘Burning River Way’™ practice plans were designed in conjunction with some of the top Division 1, 2, and 3 college coaches. These BR plans are based on plans those coaches have used to guide their teams to the success they have had in the NCAA playoffs. These college programs include: Syracuse, Maryland, Hobart, Notre Dame, Penn State, Georgetown, Mercyhurst, NYIT, Salisbury, Roanoke to name a few.
To update our ‘Burning River Way’™ plans we actually visit between 5 and 7 college programs each year to meet with their coaching staffs and view their practices. At these meetings, we discuss the latest player training developments, new skills drills, and key focus areas. We also get to discuss philosophy and receive feedback / input on our ‘Burning River Way’™ of doing things.
Unlike other clubs that just roll out a ball and scrimmage, our coaches’ focus on providing top level instruction. We provide your son with the fundamental skills and lax IQ that college coaches have told us they want to see.
To do this we focus on providing instruction that:
Our dedication, commitment, and focus on growing lacrosse opportunities has allowed us to develop a unique training and development system unavailable at any other club program. This has allowed us to develop our players to their full potential. Our players benefit from being with the leader in lacrosse development.
