Jamborees or Tournaments:
Note: For safety reasons, some who are NEW to the game or NEW to the RedHawks program, may not be able to compete in our 1st tournament because it takes place after only a few practices - must most will not have an issue. Our goal is to make sure players understand the rules of the game and can compete in a safe manner. Please see your head coach for details if this applies to you.
We expect to play about 10-12 games between Feb - April. These games will all take place as part of lacrosse "Jamborees” or Tournaments. There is NO hotel stay required and all events (Note: The last tournament of the year imay be a Saturday and Sunday) can be driven round trip in 1 day. These "Lacrosse Jamborees" are a gathering of teams from all over the state (at a specific location) to provide opportunities for teams to play multiple games; thus, reducing the amount of travel. These Jamborees are Saturday or Sunday events in which our team will play 2 or 3 games in one day. We expect to attend about "3 to 5" Jamborees in 3 months. These Jamborees or Tournament will take place mostly in Jacksonville but others area within driving distance.
