The Benefits of a Lacrosse Tournament
Lacrosse tournaments are a great way to get your team exposure and some good game-time practice. Though some tournaments are gateways into potential championships, other tournaments serve as a way for teams to get to compete against each other in a learning and practicing environment. Our Adrenaline Tournaments provide your team with the ability to play diverse club programs from around the county and enjoy a family fun weekend of competitive lacrosse. We set up divisions to foster an atmosphere for competition and inspire teams to go onto the championship arena, where champions get prizes and national recognition for their success. This is also a great way to visit destination cities and get collegiate exposure opportunities. In this blog post, we’re going to explore some of the many benefits participating in an Adrenaline lacrosse tournament can provide.
Attending a lacrosse tournament is great exposure for your team to get invited to other tournaments, as well as a way for your players to get exposure as well. At Adrenaline Tournaments, we have recruiters from collegiate level teams scoping out potential talent to add to their team. Getting the opportunity to play in front of them, for not just one game but multiple games, gives your players the platform necessary to showcase their skills as developing lacrosse players. Collegiate recruitment can provide them with a potential future in lacrosse, as well as the prospect of receiving money for college through playing lacrosse. Furthermore, Adrenaline Respare, our recruiters, are on site for each tournament to view games. This allows for them to recommend players to other events that can be a potential positive value in furthering their ability to get collegiate exposure.
Going to a tournament not only gives your team the ability to play multiple games within a weekend, but it also allows them to bound as a team. This is a platform for team building, as the team will be spending time together, both on and off the field, for the length of tournament. Creating the necessary team chemistry amongst your players can have a multitude of positive impacts when it comes to preparing your team for future events. With two to three games on average being played everyday, your players can see what is working and not working within their gameplan. In addition, with two to three days spent together, your teammates get a chance to know each other on a more personal level than just congregating around water bottles at practices and games. Team building is a necessary step in creating strong team chemistry, and getting involved in a lacrosse tournament can provide that.
Testing Out Game Plan Strategies
If your team is using a tournament as an opportunity to gain more competitive practice before aspiring towards a division or state championship, multiple games per day provide you with the ability to test trial game plan strategies. This gives you the real-life practice needed to see if something works well or not. This also allows you to move players around to get an understanding of what some of your players’ strengths and weaknesses are in different field positions.
Allows Your Team to Experience Traveling
Traveling can be difficult when you’re a high school student participating in sports, but signing up for a tournament gives your players a glimpse into what traveling is like. Though traveling locally or within your state may be a normal procedure for your lacrosse team, getting them to travel to destination lacrosse events at premier venues can give them a bit of inspiration when it comes to playing the game. They can see what it’s like to play on some of the best lacrosse fields in the nation, as well as what it’s like to be a traveling athlete. This can give them the necessary push to excel and seek out collegiate sports. It is also a great team building opportunity as addressed above. Lacrosse tournaments are great for family fun, as the families of the players get to travel and experience these tournaments as well.
