Nick Rocco Ocean Springs MS, USA West U19 Team
The coaching staff and I would like you to join the ranks of the USA West Lacrosse Team! You have a once in a lifetime opportunity to represent your country in Manchester, England during the World Championships. Congratulations on being selected to the USA WEST All – Star team! Now it’s time to get down to some of the details about the trip. As you can imagine a trip of this nature is no small undertaking. There are many things that need to be taken into consideration when traveling with an All –Star team to a foreign country, especially considering that we are traveling to the World Games.
The USA West Lacrosse Team is a regional All Star teams comprised of the best high school lacrosse players in the deep south & western half of the country. USA West was set up to provide lacrosse players from these areas with the playing experience of a lifetime. Since its inception, USA West teams have traveled to Japan, England, Australia, China, Germany, South Korea and the Czech Republic. The team has had tremendous success winning every college tournament that we have entered.
For the summer of 2010 we are putting together one of the best USA West team yet! The trip will put the team to the ultimate test by playing in the World Championships. The team will be playing in the U-19 elite division of the festival. After the tournament the team will travel south to visit Bath, Stonehenge, and London.
The trip will start on July 14th when all players and coaches have to report to Los Angeles for training camp. The players and coaches will come together for 2 nights and 3 days of mini camp to prepare for their trip abroad. The team will then fly to Manchester for the tournament.
Once again congratulations on being selected!
