The Challenge

150+ TEAMS ATTENDING!!!
PERFECT WEATHER NEAR THE BEACH!!!
80+ MENS COLLEGE COACHES!!!

Allow Southern California to provide a much needed break from the dismal January weather most places endure while providing a critical value to your team and players.  The Adrenaline Challenge, in beautiful Del Mar CA, has been a vital team recruiting program on the Adrenaline calendar since 2002.  Located under a mile away from the Pacific Ocean, last year’s event saw 175 teams from all over the United States and Canada in front of 80+ NCAA College Coaches. Teams play games over a two day period to compete for what many people consider to be the western club championship.  This is where the majority of sophomores and juniors get their first legitimate recruitment exposure of the season.  It is also common for talented seniors who are not committed at the time to be picked up by colleges still looking to fill their collegiate classes for the following season. Teams competing in this tournament include the very best the country has to offer.  Click the links below for more information on attending teams, recruiters, and travel info. Top rated facilities ensure excellent playing conditions while teams enjoy the hassle free experience provided by the events team with 16 years of lacrosse specific events experience.  Block scheduling, vendor village and tourist packages ensure every member of the team and family has some fun.

 

Adrenaline’s vision is to capture the distinct aspects of each city we visit and provide a regional experience for the thousands of people in attendance. In order to accomplish this, Adrenaline curates the best food, shopping, and entertainment options in each location, and showcases them in the Adrenaline Vendor Village. Find out more about what to do off field with your team on our San Diego Overview tab below.

This event is a US Lacrosse Nationals Sanctioned Qualifier Event.  Teams competing in the top competitive divisions will accrue points and all points earned at this event will count towards qualification for the 2020 US Lacrosse Nationals. The 2020 US Lacrosse Nationals will cap off the 2019 event season with a championship for the 14U & 13U Boy’s and Girl’s Divisions.

COACHES CONDUCT

Adrenaline Name & Shield

COACHES & DIRECTORS EXPECTATIONS

As a Coach/Director, I understand that:

  • All of my players must be registered/paid prior to stepping foot on the field.  Any player not registered/paid will not be permitted to play.
  • Eligibility requirements, at all levels of the game, must be followed.  Rules and requirements such as age, previous level of participation, and team transfers, have been established to encourage and maximize participation, fair play and to promote safety.  Adrenaline Tournament Rules can be found on each event page.
  • I should always demonstrate positive behavior and reinforce these traits to players, parents, officials and spectators.  Players should be encouraged by coaches to demonstrate positive behavior and respect for teammates, opponents, officials and spectators.
  • Spectators will be informed that positive behavior is required at all events and they should not get involved in any on field disputes.
  • My first priority is the health and safety of the players assigned to my team.
  • Grievances or misunderstandings between coaches, officials or any other parties involved with the sport should be communicated through the proper channels, never on the field of play or in view of spectators or participants.  All field tents have the ability to communicate with the Tournament Director or Main Information Tent.
  • The use of profanity or vulgar language is unacceptable.
  • The value of good sportsmanship, the concepts of fair play, and the skills of the game should always be placed above winning.
POLICIES

ADRENALINE POLICIES

REFUND POLICY

  • Adrenaline has a strict “no refunds” policy for all events and clubs.  We will provide a 100% credit to any team or player that has registered and paid for an event that is cancelled due to COVID-19.
  • 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.
