ADAM GHITELMAN

Major League Lacrosse all-star goalie Adam Ghitelman is in his first season as an assistant coach at Utah. Ghitelman joined Utah’s club lacrosse team in 2017. The Utes won the 2018 Rocky Mountain Lacrosse Conference Championship and made two appearances in the Men’s Collegiate Lacrosse Association tournament. Utah finished 16-1 overall in 2018 and finished fifth in the final coaches poll while defenders Daniel Costa (goalie) and Seth Neeleman earned All-America honors.

Ghitelman first made his way West as head coach of USC’s club program in 2016. The Trojans went 8-8 overall and made their first Southwest Lacrosse Conference tournament appearance. Ghitelman began his college coaching career at Harvard, spending four years with the Crimson (2012-15). In 2014, Harvard won the program’s first Ivy League championship since 1990 and earned a berth in the NCAA Tournament. Defensive players earned eight All-Ivy honors during his four years, including goalies earning honors in three-straight seasons.

Ghitelman, who will play in the newly-formed PLL in 2019, played eight seasons in MLL and three years with the Atlanta Blaze. He is a two-time MLL all star (2012, 2017). Ghitelman has over 1,000 career saves and an over 50-percent career save percentage. He has also played with Boston (2015), Charlotte (2012-14) and Denver (2011) after being selected in the eighth round of the 2011 draft. Ghitelman has also participated with Team USA, helping the U.S. win the 2008 ILF U-19 World Championship.

Ghitelman was a two-time All-American at Virginia and helped lead the Cavaliers to the 2011 NCAA Championship as a senior. He played four years at UVA (2008-11) and his 586 career saves ranks in the top 10 in ACC history and second all-time at Virginia. Ghitelman ranks in the top 15 all-time in Division I in career goalkeeper minutes played (3,442). He helped lead UVA to the 2010 ACC Championship and was named tournament MVP. Ghitelman played in the longest game in NCAA history, a seven-overtime contest against Maryland in 2009, recording a career-high 22 saves.

Ghitelman is a co-founder of the Give and Go Foundation, a non-profit organization that promotes international lacrosse growth and development, as well as G3 Lacrosse, which puts on goaltender camps and clinics throughout the country. He has traveled internationally to over eight countries to teach and grow the game and was named the 2017 Ambassador of the Year by the Casey Powell World Lacrosse Foundation. Ghitelman is an active volunteer with Lacrosse the Nations and Fields of Growth, teaching the game overseas, and has worked with City Lacrosse in Southern California. A native of Cold Spring Harbor, N.Y, Ghitelman earned degrees in psychology and economics from Virginia in 2011.

ADDITIONAL INSURANCE

REGISTRATION SAVER

Adrenaline is pleased to announce we are offering parents a solution to our “No Refund” policy as it relates to event fees.  We are highly recommending that you purchase this new AIG policy called “Registration Saver”.  You may still purchase even though you have already registered.

The policy helps protect parent’s investment in non-refundable event fees and related travel cost if the event is cancelled due to inclement weather or your player suffers an injury or illness either on or off the field prior to the event.  It also covers many other unforeseen circumstances, which might prevent a player from participating.

Here are some key reasons why we wanted to make parents aware of the “Registration Saver”:

  • Adrenaline has a “NO” Refund Policy
  • Injuries & Illness Occurs
  • Event Cancellation Due to Inclement Weather
  • Non-Refundable Travel Costs Are Covered
  • Affordable Coverage at 6% of Event & Travel Costs

***Note: The policy must be purchased 15 or more days prior to the start of the event. The premium is very affordable and calculated based on 6% of the event and travel related expenses.

If you purchase a policy and an injury, illness or other unforeseen event should happen to your player before the tournament start date, the policy kicks in to reimburse your costs.

How to Buy:  Please visit the website: www.registrationsaver.com to review the coverage.  To complete the simple application, click on “Apply Now” and select the “Tournament & Camps”.   You can purchase a policy for just the event registration fee or if you wish to include your travel, simply fill in the related travel expenses in the fields provided and your premium will be calculated for you. If parents and family members are traveling also, you can purchase the travel for the whole family! We highly recommend purchasing ASAP!

POLICIES

ADRENALINE POLICIES

REFUND POLICY

  • Adrenaline has a strict NO REFUNDS policy for all events and clubs.
  • To protect your registration fee’s in the event you suffer an injury either on the field or off, illness or cancellation due to inclement weather, we encourage you to purchase the new AIG insurance policy called “Registration Saver.”
  • The policy covers your registration fee investment for a camp/tournament or a club season.  If you have already registered, you can still get coverage.  Camp/tournament coverage MUST be purchased at least 14 days in advance of the start date.  Club season coverage can be purchased at any time.
  • If something should happen to your player after the season/tournament start date, the policy will refund your fees pro-rata, based on the duration of the season/tournament or when the player has to stop participating.
  • The premium cost is 6% of camp/tournament fees or 7% of club season fees and will give you relief from Adrenaline’s strict No Refunds policy.
  • To review the coverage and complete the simple application, go to www.registrationsaver.com.  Click on “Apply Now” and select the “Season”/”Camp-Tournament” policy to sign up.
  • AIG can be reached at 866-690-6859 and is available 24/7.

WEATHER POLICY

The safety of our players, coaches, referees, fans and staff comes first.  In the event of adverse weather or unplayable field conditions, Adrenaline reserves the right to:

  • Cancel games partially or entirely
  • Reduce game times, eliminate halftime or shorten time between games
  • Finish games before inclement weather arrives
  • Reschedule and/or relocate games
  • Convert a tournament to a “festival” format without a playoffs or championship

If there is a lightning strike within 6 miles of the facility, play will be suspended immediately and will not resume until 30 minutes after the last lighting strike within 6 miles of the facility.  If a game stoppage occurs in the second half of a game, that game will be considered final and the score at that time will be recorded as final.  If a game stoppage occurs in the first half, when play resumes it will be the start of the second half.

We will make every attempt to play every minute of every game but our ability to do this is dependent on field availability and lighting.   We will post schedule delays, changes and cancellations on Tourney Machine and on the event web page.  Additionally we will email all registered club directors, coaches and players via LeagueApps.  Weather conditions can change rapidly and all teams MUST be prepared to play as soon as the weather clears and fields are playable or risk forfeiting a game.

Facility management often has the final say on weather and field condition delays and cancellations.

FREE AGENT POLICY

  • Players interested in participating in an event but are not on a team MUST register as a Free Agent on our website.
  • If a Free Agent Fee applies, the Free Agent must pay the fee.  If they are not placed a full refund will be granted.
  • Once a player registers as a Free Agent, contact information will be sent to all attending coaches/directors.
  • If a team needs an additional player, they will contact the Free Agent directly.
  • If the player fee is set to $0, Coaches/Directors may set their own Free Agent price.
  • REGISTRATION AS A FREE AGENT IS NOT GUARANTEED!

FINANCIAL AID POLICY

If there is Financial Aid available, it will be distributed appropriately based on:

  1. Verified Family Income – The eligibility threshold is combined parental Adjusted Gross of $60,000 (line 37 on federal tax return form 1040).  Other factors such as unemployment or other financial hardships may be considered by the Financial Aid Committee.  A signed copy of the most recent Federal Tax Return must be emailed to info@adrln.com.
  2. Amount  Awarded – The Financial Aid Committee shall determine the amount of the financial aid available for a season/event; however, there is no obligation to award any/all of the award pool.  Based on the amount of the award pool and the amount of financial aid requests, awards will be made on a sliding scale based on verified family income.  The maximum amount of an award shall not exceed the total fee for the program/event.
  3. Applications – Financial Aid applications must be submitted 2 months prior to the first day of practice/event and will be reviewed, determined and communicated one month prior to practice.
  4. Recruiting Events – Due to NCAA rules, no Financial Aid will be granted for recruiting events.

Questions regarding any of these policies should be directed to info@adrln.com.
