Announcing BLU Summer 2018 Program
by posted 01/31/2018

We hope everyone's spring season is off to a great start and everyone is looking forward to a great summer with BLU. Please read below for information regarding our summer program.  We are looking forward to seeing everyone on the fields. Good luck this spring to each community.

 

Growth and Program Goals

We have undergone significant growth over the the past year, and we are anticipating continued growth this summer.  Our desire is to catalyze and kindle the competitive spirit and fire that fuels an Elite competitive team, while also creating select teams to build the foundation and training for the development of newer players in hopes that they embrace the sport and their passion leads them to our Elite team in the future.  Our goal this summer is to field multiple teams at every division, and our target roster size for each team is an 18 player roster.  We believe this size fosters a teams cohesiveness and maximizes each families tournament experience.  We will hold evaluations (at a date to be announced soon) to determine our Elite and Select rosters.  If you want to travel, you will be placed on a team!  We will field as many select teams as we have demand for while targeting an 18 man roster, and we will field an elite team at each division.  If we are fortunate to be able to field multiple Elite teams in a division, we will do that also.  Our goal this summer is to have our teams qualify for the nationals (either Dick's or IMG).

 

Clinics, Camps, and Non-Travel

We will hold various clinics and camps this summer and we will continue to provide training for families that are not able to participate in the summer tournaments.

 

Cost

Cost for Travel is $599 and for training-only is $389. Girl program information will be released soon.

We are so humbled by the growth that our program has seen in 2 years, and are fueled by the promise of what the future holds in store for BLU.   Our desire is to use our BLU-PRINT methodology as a platform not only elevate seasoned players to a championship level, but to also kindle a passion and love for Lacrosse for new and developing players. We are a program for all Birmingham communities, united by the game of Lacrosse with a vision of developing all players to their fullest potential.  Tell your friends about us and let's make summer #3 the best yet!

 

Go BLU!
