All outdoor practices take place in Denver with occasional indoor training at the Indoor Sports Arena.
Team 180 members are expected to attend practice and be punctual. If possible, 24 hours notice should be given before an absence. A player will be asked to leave the program if there is continual tardiness and absence. Attending at least two tournaments per year is preferable.
It depends on the age group, but the majority of tournaments are in the summer on the east coast. Also, in January, our teams attend a tournament in California.
We do encourage our youth players to participate with their recreational and/or school teams. However, a player would not be able to participate with two travel lacrosse teams.
For minis and middle school we offer programs in the spring, summer and fall. In the spring we train two to three days a week, in the summer we hold approximately 16-two hour training sessions, and in the fall we train once a week. Additional indoor practices usually take place over the winter break for the travel squads. Our middle school teams attend one tournament in January, and up to three in the summer.
High school athletes participate with 180 in the summer and fall. We train on Sundays during the fall, indoor training over winter break and approximately 16-two hour sessions throughout the summer. The more senior teams attend one tournament in January, up to four in the summer and two in the fall. Teams can attend up to seven tournaments per year.
No. Team 180 compliments high school lacrosse. We do not train or compete during the spring high school season.
Each player is responsible for providing her own lacrosse stick, protective eye wear and mouth piece. Goalies must have their own lacrosse stick, mouth piece, helmet with face mask, a separate throat protector, padded gloves, shin, thigh and chest pads.
For middle school girls, tryouts are held on Sundays through March and April to determine the summer travel teams. Any player can register to participate in tryouts. High school players must contact Sam Bartron directly if they are interested in joining the program.
