High Rollers- Texas | Event Recap
June 29th, 2015
Despite the blistering Texas sun, players from all over Texas and Oklahoma came to the first ever High Rollers Texas event in Southlake, TX on Thursday, June 25th and Friday, June 26th. Some of the top middle school and high school players in the area showcased their skills at this local High Rollers event where college coaches from schools around the country, including Duke, Rutgers, Fairfield and more, traveled in for the two-day event.
Thursday started off with individual skill clinics and drills hosted by the college coaches to help players understand how to compete at a collegiate level. After lunch, players were separated into teams and played two competitive games coached by recruiters. To end the day, a recruitment seminar was held by the NCAA coaches where they talked about the differences in recruiting and rules between Division I, II and III schools and also allowed players to ask the coaches any questions they had. The second day followed the same schedule, with a seminar about making it to the next level from a non-traditional area (such as Texas or Oklahoma).
Parents and players loved the High Rollers Texas recruiting event because it was the first of its kind in an area where lacrosse is becoming an increasingly popular sport. It offered middle school and high school players exposure to collegiate lacrosse without having to travel cross-country to a similar event. With the overwhelming positive response, Adrenaline plans to grow the of High Rollers Texas next year, with more depth in players and talent as well as attending recruiters.
