Team Spotlight: Nation United Lacrosse
Adrenaline is proud to host the newly formed program, Nations United, at the Summer Invitational PA recruiting event next week in Downingtown, PA! A first of its kinds in lacrosse, the Nations United program aims to bring together elite athletes with diverse cultural backgrounds and provide them with an unparalleled lacrosse experience. Their roster is stacked with ‘ambassadors of the game’ from all over country, who are athletes who play “the game of lacrosse at the highest-level with passion, commitment and sportsmanship, exemplifying the best of the sport on and off the field. An Ambassador pursues excellence in school and in life. An Ambassador represents diversity in the sport, and represents the sport to those who may not otherwise experience it.” Find out more about this unqiue club program below!
