Annual Black Card & Platinum Cup Weekend Showcase Top Players & Clubs
There is no better way to kick off the summer lacrosse circuit on the boys side than Adrenaline Black Card Showcase and Platinum Cup weekend. Year after year these coinciding events draw the top players and teams from some the country’s best club lacrosse programs. Black Card and Platinum Cup have established a reputation as the top event destination for players, teams, and NCAA recruiters alike. They were created with the intention of bringing together the nation’s top talent at one amazing venue to provide an exposure opportunity unlike any other. A singular location is a key ingredient for attracting college coaches, especially one that is full turf to avoid weather cancellations. Teams traveling from all corners of the U.S include West Coast Starz (PNW, Norcal, SoCal, Southwest, etc.), Sweetlax (FL), Denver Elite (CO), Edge Elite (CAN), Team 91 Carolina (NC), and more! The attending club reach spans fifteen states (VA, CA, PA, CO, NY, NJ, MD, NC, DE, FL, OH, KY, TX, MA, MO) and Canada, ensuring college coaches get a solid look at how untraditional regional clubs stack up against the hotbed standout programs. With six pure grad year divisions ranging from 2020- 2025, there will be six champions crowned on Sunday afternoon. Check out the Platinum Cup weekend schedule on Tourney Machine here.
Access to Platinum Cup comes by way of invite or qualification by winning a division at the Adrenaline Invitational. With the nation’s best converging at DE Turf to compete at the highest level, well over a 100+ college coaches flock to the fields. As always, both events attract the best recruiters from NCAA Division I, II & III programs. The showcase coupled with a team tournament model allows college coaches to watch players compete in an unfamiliar, individual setting and see how they adapt in new systems with fresh teammates. Black Card players will be treated to head-to-toe Adrenaline gear. The “look good, play good” mentality will be in full force to showcase their skills infront of college coaches (stay tuned for a gear release on our social media!). The following two days, the coaches get to see those players rejoin their teams and compete in a different capacity. The fact that these high level prospects get to compete against elite competition from all over the country is the difference maker. At Adrenaline, we’re honored, proud, and humbled to host the nation’s best teams and recruiters, and take pride in providing a platform to connect the two.
