Adrenaline Tropics Return To Vail And Tahoe
June 23rd, 2016
With the summer lacrosse season in full swing, Adrenaline Tropics will head to Colorado this Sunday for the annual Vail Lacrosse Shootout. One of the most competitive and scenic tournaments of the summer, the Tropics will face the top U19 talent from all over country. Games for the U19 division kick off on Sunday, June 26th through Wednesday, June 29th. Their first opponents in regular pool play include Laxachusetts, Minnesota True Lacrosse and Georgia Thunder. When the team is not on the field competing, off hours are jam-packed with the ultimate bonding activities such as white water rafting and tubing that are quintessential to the Tropics, end-of-high-school celebratory experience.
Adrenaline Tropics is the most exclusive and talented team in the west comprised of Adrenaline’s top committed talent. The roster is stacked with players committed to NCAA schools and exemplifies the pinnacle of what the West has to offer. Notable alumni include players like Bailey Tills (Brown), Eddy Glazner (Notre Dame), Lucas Gradinger (Maryland), Justin Anderson (UNC), Kieran Eissler (Johns Hopkins), and Mike Schlosser (Michigan). The team travels in both the Fall and Summer to a series of carefully selected tournaments that provide the players an excellent opportunity to experience the highest level of play, something they will undoubtedly face in years to come. Not only does Tropics provide our tops athletes with a chance to play against the nation’s best competition, but it also creates off field memories that will last a lifetime. Whether it’s the built in team bonding trips like tubing down a river, team dinners or sharing a cabin, the Adrenaline Tropics program offers a lacrosse experience that is unparalleled. Leading the pack is Adrenaline Recruiting Director Jono Zissi, and Events Sales Manager, Dan Meehan, both veteran Trops coaches.
Summer 2016 Roster
As the apex of Adrenaline’s club programs, Tropics ensures the top players who have been involved in the Adrenaline system receive the recognition and attention they deserve. This year the players will receive the full Adrln treatment with custom uniforms, tanks and Vendetta Technical socks to match. To round out the attire, we are excited to announce the Tropics will also be wearing the Integra Protective Line by Epoch lacrosse. All the pads include Epoch’s unique phase change technology that allows for optimal temperature control so that you can stay cool while playing in the summer heat. Epoch has also integrated real carbon fiber into all of their pads to help make them more durable and to create strong abrasion resistance. Helmet wrapz will contribute to the gear pack with sweet custom decals to match the ensemble.
Tropics will cap off the summer season as usual at the Lake Tahoe Lacrosse tournament on July 22nd – 24th, an event they have managed to dominate with eight division championships under their belt.
