Adrln Challenge

200+ TEAMS ATTENDING!!!
PERFECT WEATHER NEAR THE BEACH!!!
75+ MENS COLLEGE COACHES!!!

Allow 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 has been a vital team recruiting program on the Adrenaline calendar since 2002. Last year’s event saw 185 teams from all over the United States and Canada in front of 75+ Men’s 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 23 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 part of the USA 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. 

All tournament participants must be current USA Lacrosse members in order to participate. USA Lacrosse membership numbers will be collected and verified when completing tournament waivers. If you are not currently a member, or your membership is set to expire during the event, please visit USA Lacrosse to register.

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.

WINTER SHOWCASE
LOOKING FOR EXTRA COLLEGIATE LOOKS?

The Winter Showcase is the evening before the Challenge giving college coaches an opportunity to run NCAA level clinics & scout players in a boutique setting. Players benefit from interacting with the college coaches in drills & having their jersey marked before the team event begins. College coaches benefit from watching players showcase their talent in an individual setting, then seeing how they perform at the team event on Saturday & Sunday.

Don’t miss this opportunity!!!

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

REFUNDS

  • 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

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 AGENTS

  • Players interested in participating in an event but are not on a team MUST register as a Free Agent on our website and pay the $1 fee.
  • Player information will be circulated to all attending coaches/directors.
  • If a team needs an additional player, they will contact the Free Agent directly.
  • If a Free Agent is picked up by a team they will be charged the Free Agent fee by Adrenaline for that event.
  • There is no guarantee that registered Free Agents will be picked up by a team for any event.

     

    REGISTRATION FEE INSURANCE

    TRAVEL & CANCELLATION COVERAGE:

    To protect your event payment in the result of an injury, conflict, etc. we highly encourage you to consider purchasing Registration Saver, a new AIG product, to cover your registration investment for this event. If you have any questions, please call AIG directly at 866-690-6859. They are open and available for questions concerning coverage and services 24 hours each day.

    The cost is approximately 6% of total cost for the event and will give you relief from our “No Refund Policy” should an issue occur. There are no deductibles for these policies.
