Corrigan Sports Enterprises and Under Armour, Inc. announced today the dates and locations of the Philadelphia boys’ and girls’ tryouts for the 2010 Under Armour All-America Lacrosse Classic Underclassmen Tournament.
The Philly girls’ tryouts will be held on June 14-15 (5-8 p.m.) at Eastern University in Radnor Township. Boys’ tryouts will be held June 16-17 (5:30-8 p.m.) at Eastern.
The Philly head coaches also were announced. The boys’ team will be headed by Downingtown East mentor Tom Slate, formerly the head coach of the now-defunct San Francisco Dragons of Major League Lacrosse and a former assistant with the Philadelphia Barrage. One of Slate’s assistants will be Springfield-Delco coach Michael Friel. The girls’ team will be coached by Downingtown East’s Caitlin Barbakoff.
The event will take place the weekend of July 3-4 at Johnny Unitas Stadium on the campus of Towson University in Towson, Md. The underclassmen event will feature teams from Baltimore, Long Island, Midwest, New England, New Jersey, Philadelphia, Upstate New York, and Washington, D.C. Over the two days, the teams will battle in an eight-team pool play tournament. The weekend is capped off on Sunday the 4th at 3:30 p.m. where the winner of each pool will face off for the Under Armour Underclassmen Championship.
All boys and girls in the graduating classes of 2011, 2012, and 2013 are eligible to tryout and receive the opportunity to be one of the 24 players selected by a panel of coaching experts to represent their region. All participants will receive an Under Armour event shirt, an event reversible, a subscription to Inside Lacrosse magazine, as well as an in-depth biography page in the college coaches’ recruiting booklet.
The Under Armour Underclassmen Tournament is part of the Under Armour All-America games that feature 44 of the best 2010 senior class boys and girls from around the country squaring off against each other in a North vs. South format. Similar to past years, Inside Lacrosse will select the players for the Under Armour All-America senior games.
