Summer 2022 Starts With ADRLN
Frederica, DE is home to 948 residents. On June 10-12th that population will more than quadruple as 4,000+ lacrosse hungry players, coaches, and parents from 23 different states pile into this quaint beach town to kick off the summer lacrosse season. This year marks the 10th anniversary of the Black Card & Platinum Cup weekend, and the first of 13 Adrenaline summer events.
This three-day extravaganza starts with our highly coveted Black Card event. College coaches from powerhouse schools will dust off their whistles as the nation’s top 88 players lace up their cleats for a full day of non-stop competition. And if sharing the sidelines with brilliant lacrosse minds like John Tillman (Head Coach, Maryland) isn’t enough, each player is getting HOOKED up from head to toe with a fresh batch of ADRLN Black Card 88 Team gear. Be on the lookout for college coaches from the following schools:
Maryland, Georgetown, Duke, Harvard, UNC, Virginia, Notre Dame, Tufts, Saint Joseph’s, Brown, Princeton, Michigan, Denver, and many more!
After the sunsets on a full day of huge plays and recruiting connections, we’ll clean slate and get ready for the first day of Platinum cup pool play. DE Turf Complex will be filled with new teams looking to draw first blood, returning teams clawing their way up the rankings, and defending champs fighting to stay on top. Here are the Adrenaline Power Rankings to watch on Saturday:
- 2023 > (1) WCS 2023 Gold vs. (14) Top Caliber Lacrosse 2023
