Summer Travel Team Overview

Since inception our teams have consistently finished at the top of the tournaments we competed in.
Overall, our teams have won 38 Nat'l Tournament Championships (37 Field / 1 Box) & been a Finalist 20x.

*****************************************************************************************************************************************************

Our travel teams were founded in 2007 to showcase Northern Ohio lacrosse players who are highly skilled but also of high character. Unlike other travel teams that only accept coaches' recommendations, we hold 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 2019 teams had players from over 50 Northern Ohio schools.

Information On  Our Winter Supplemental Travel Team Tryouts (Held November 2020 through January 2021).

  • Tryout Questions / Information
  • 2019 Colleges At 2020 Summer Tournaments
  • More information on the travel teams can be found in the FAQs below or at Summer Travel Tournament & Practice Info (this link takes you to practice dates / location and tournament dates / locations)
    • Yes there are still spots available on each team.  The number and position varies by team.
      • There are also a limited number of Flex Team spots available for each team.  Flex team members do everything the Travel Team members do except they are not guaranteed to go to the tournaments.  Should a spot become available due to injury, schedule conflict, etc., we select tournament replacements from our Flex Team.
    • Note: Players never get a spot just because they attended the summer tryouts (e.g. only 2 goalies attend the summer tryouts so both make the team).  Instead, players have to earn a spot by playing at the level needed, given the tournaments we attend.  Therefore, we evaluate and select players year round.  We have had players selected as late as May in some years.  In addition, every year we have players we did not make the team in August, who make the team at a later tryout after they have worked to fix their weaknesses.

Parent Testimonial

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.” Elizabeth M.  Travel Team Parent
