Silverfin Lacrosse, based in Thousand Oaks, California, presents its annual recruiting camp at California Lutheran University from June 17-19, 2011. Last year the camp was instantly popular with over 100 players in attendance at the first event. Similar to Peter Worstell’s high end event, California Gold, Silverfin brings an impressive lineup of Division 1 and Division 3 coaches to the West Coast to find players including Bucknell, Air Force, Ohio State, Yale, and Dartmouth. Several D3 schools will soon be announced as well.
“If you take a look at the recruiting opportunities for players on the West Coast you will see that they all happen in Northern California and San Diego. Geographically speaking, California Lutheran University in Thousand Oaks presents a local opportunity for players living in the areas ranging from the Southbay all the way to Santa Barbara. There’s so much lacrosse being played in this region another event of this nature just makes sense.” says Patrick Smith, founder of Silverfin Lacrosse.
The event takes place from 17-19 June which historically means 70 degree temperatures, clear skies, and no humidity in Thousand Oaks. Because similar events in Maryland and the northeast see temperatures of 95+ degrees during this period, some coaches in attendance last summer commented on the welcome change of weather.
For those players wishing to travel to the event from other areas, California Lutheran is located approximately 45 minutes north of Los Angeles International Airport and 35 minutes west of Burbank Airport. The event offers both sleep away and day camper opportunities.
