How do you find your athletes?
We do everything we can to make sure that the players we invite to travel with us will represent the U.S. Elite Teams with character and pride. We select our players a couple of different ways. We will receive referrals from high school, club or college coaches. Coaches that have traveled with us in the past will often suggest to us one of their players. We also use the statistics, awards and all-american listings of current collegiate players. U.S. Elite will recruit All-Americans and All-Conference players. We take pride in developing rosters of quality players that will represent the United States with highest regard.
Do you put together rosters from specific school?
Yes and no...We select individual players from around the country. Playing in one conference or another doesn't make a difference to us. Players that enjoy the game and play hard are what we are looking for. On one roster having players from California, Utah, Texas, Massachusetts etc...make our trips even more memorable. We've found players enjoy meeting other players from across the country. We will however help schedule an international trip for clubs and colleges. Contact us for details.
Who do we play?
When U.S. Elite Teams travel we have played everyone from a local town's club team, to the Italian National Team. We will often regoter our teams for tournaments that are located near or are attached to FIL events. That way our players can enjoy playing in a tournament and then watching National Teams compete for a European Title or a World Cup Championship.
What is included in the cost?
Generally our trip's cost will include the price of travel from the destination city to the event location. We will also include any group travel or excursions that we might take part in as a team (Mountain Biking, Zip-Lines, Morning Yoga, Etc). We usually also include breakfast everyday to make sure our athletes start the day off right.
What can i expect if i decide to travel?
You should expect the best lacrosse trip ever! Upon making your deposit to secure your roster spot, we will send to you more information about your specific trip. You will be informed of dates and times that your transportation will leave from the departure city, and arrive at the destination city. You will receive a payment plan. Most trips are paid for in 3 separate payments, spread out, up until the trip. You will receive a preliminary itinerary for the trip. A more detailed itinerary will be released about 2 weeks prior to the trip. Important Note: We concentrate on Lacrosse Experiences....We don't spread ourselves too thin offering every sport under the sun.... We want to make sure that we are preparing and giving you the best lacrosse trip that we can possibly make.
