Adrenaline Black Card and Platinum Cup 2015
June 9th, 2015
With the summer club season rapidly approaching, Adrenaline Lacrosse is excited to host what is widely regarded as the nation’s top individual and team recruiting events. The Black Card event selects the top individuals in the country to play in a showcase style event where the Platinum Cup selects the top club programs in the country to compete for a national club championship. The Black Card coupled with the Platinum Cup is set to be an unbelievable weekend of lacrosse with over 100 recruiters in attendance. While we get set up back at Headquarters, here is everything you need to know coming up.
Black Card was created to expand Adrenaline’s reach throughout the entire nation. Known as the top individual recruiting showcase in the country, the most elite level players from across the country, as recognized by an exclusive panel of local, regional and national evaluators, will be competing against one another with all of the top NCAA coaches in attendance. The weekend will kick off Friday June 12th for the Black Card event with the Platinum Cup taking place on the 13th and 14th at Plymouth-Whitemarsh High School in Pennsylvania. Black Card selects the top 1% of uncommitted talent in the country and puts them on display. This one-of-a-kind recruiting event gives 2017 and 2018 graduates the opportunity to compete and showcase their talent to over 100 college recruiters (including Harvard, Duke, Virginia, Denver, Maryland, UNC, Notre Dame and many more), creating a unique recruiting opportunity for players and coaches. The partnership with Game Time Footage allows every game to be professionally recorded and gives players and coaches the privilege to obtain affordable game film and highlights. Along with this once in a lifetime experience, players are hooked up with an exclusive Adrenaline Treatment Pack. This pack contains custom designed STX Cell 3 gloves, Adrenaline Treated jerseys, shorts and Adrenaline Strife Technical socks. As always, Gatorade will be onsite ensuring the boys stay hydrated and properly fueled all weekend long. Beyond the recruiting side, the Black Card Showcase was created to promote awareness for prostate cancer in honor of Jack McGetrick, a life-long lacrosse enthusiast as a player and coach.
Equipped with the 11 most talented boys club teams in North America, ranging from 2016-2020 graduates, combined with over 100 college recruiters in attendance, the Platinum Cup will likely be the highest level of competition of any event all summer long. The Platinum Cup is comprised of a very intense championship style tournament format; a schedule that gives players’ maximum exposure, recruiters the best access to finding and recruiting the best athletes America has to offer, and teams the chance to be crowned as the top team in the nation. We have partnered with GameTime Footage for this portion of the weekend as well to ensure every player and recruiter has access to affordable game film and highlights. Our official end line net systems supplier, 33Plays, will be onsite to make sure our fields are equipped with netting to provide a save environment for spectators and recruiters alike.
