Santa Barbara Showdown

Cal Coast Sports Ventures and Adrenaline Lacrosse have now partnered on the Santa Barbara Showdown. The Santa Barbara Showdown fueled by Adrenaline is a premiere lacrosse event played in a beautiful part of the world. Santa Barbara County sits between Southern California and Central California with the Pacific Ocean and the Santa Ynez mountains in view simultaneously from most vantages. The SB Showdown will be played at the gorgeous Santa Barbara Polo & Racquet Club.

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 Santa Barbara Overview tab below.

This event is part of The US Lacrosse Sanctioning Program, which provides best practices for tournament operators in order to create a more safe and consistent event. Through the adoption of the Sanctioned Tournament Standards, tournaments commit to providing the best possible lacrosse experience.

TRAVEL & LODGING

ADRENALINE LACROSSE – HOTEL ACCOMMODATIONS

Adrenaline Lacrosse has partnered with EventConnect to provide attendees/groups with the best available hotel rates and a smooth booking experience.

Our event is a “Stay to Play” event:  A good working relationship with hotels is critical for the long-term success of our event. For this reason, teams or attendees who are traveling from out of town are required to book their rooms through our Official Travel Partner, EventConnect, to ensure that our room blocks are utilized. In short, since the hotels are holding rooms for our event, we must use these rooms.

HOW THE PROCESS WORKS:

Once you have registered for the tournament, you’ll be directed into the hotel feed for accommodation options.  These hotels meet certain standards and location guidelines set by the tournament and booking service.

Once you have found the hotel that best fits your team’s needs, you can block your rooms for free online and share your team block link with your group allowing reservations to be made.

Benefits of our Stay-to-Play Policy

  • Put room blocks on hold for FREE.
  • Room rates are locked in for all teams for hotels that meet tournament standards of excellence.
  • Ensure teams are able to acquire the certain rooms they desire along with easily booking an entire team at one location.
  • Easy online process for making hotel reservations with immediate confirmation, so you can block/book anytime.
  • Phone, email and online chat support available.
  • Easy check-in.
  • In the event of a cancellation due to weather, all fees due to the hotel are protected.
  • Rooms will book quickly so please do not wait to make your team arrangements!  
  • Please DO NOT contact the hotels directly.

FREE AGENT POLICY
*REGISTRATION AS A FREE AGENT FOR EVENTS IS NOT GUARANTEED*

Players interested in participating in an event but are not on a team MUST register as a Free Agent on the Adrenaline website. If there is a player fee, Free Agents must pay the fee. If they are not placed on a team the fee will be refunded.

Once a player registers as a Free Agent, their contact information will be sent to all attending coaches/directors.

If a team needs players for their team, the coach/director will contact the Free Agent directly.

If there player fee is set at $0, the coach/director will set their own Free Agent Price.

WEATHER POLICY
In the event of adverse weather or unplayable field conditions, the Event Director reserves the right to:
    • Reduce game times in order to catch up with schedule.
    • Finish game before inclement weather arrives, or to preserve field conditions.
    • Reschedule games, if possible.
    • Convert tournament to a “Festival” format (reduction of minimum games number) without playoffs or championships to provide the majority of teams the opportunity to play as     many games as possible.
Every attempt will be made to update cancellations on the website. However, the weather conditions can change rapidly and all teams should be prepared to play as soon as weather clears and fields are playable.

If lightning is observed at any location play will be suspended immediately. If it is the second half, the game will be considered final and the score at that point will be recorded. If it is the first half, when play resumes it will be the start of the second half. Every attempt will be made to begin subsequent games on time. If the start of the second half of the suspended game delays the onset of the subsequent game the following actions will occur:

    • The game suspended will play one 20 minute running time second half
    • Subsequent games will begin immediately after proceeding games (teams will warm up on the sideline prior to the game). These games will consist of two 20 minute running     halves until games are back on schedule.
    • Once games are back on schedule they will revert to two 25 minute running time periods.

We will make every attempt to play every minute of every game but the safety of players and all tournament attendees comes first.

No refunds will be granted if these actions are necessary after the start of the tournament.

Facility owners, not tournament organizers, have final say on whether the tournament will take place due to weather and field conditions.

In the event the tournament is cancelled prior to the start of the event, a partial refund may be issued. Final determination of refund amount will be on an event by event basis. All events have fixed expenses related to field rental & Facilities, set-up costs, insurance, personnel and other matters regardless of cancelation due to weather. Accordingly, no teams will receive full refunds of the registration fee if the tournament is canceled.

The maximum amount of an award to an individual shall not exceed the total fee for the particular program.
