Summer Travel Team Overview

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 2018 teams had players from over 50 Northern Ohio schools.  Since the inception, our teams have consistently finished at or near the top of the tournaments they have entered.  Overall our teams won 34 National Tournament Championships (33 Field / 1 Box) and 18 Runners Up.

 

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
