Welcome to the 2018 Summer Travel Lacrosse Program

The Manatee Wildcats are pleased to announce our 2018 Competitive Lacrosse Summer Travel programs.  This summer we are looking to join forces with the Tampa Tribe out of Wesley Chapel to offer our players a more competitive environment and balance against some of the best programs around Florida and the Southeast US that we will see in tournament play.  Welcome to the birth of WILDCATS TRIBE LACROSSE!!!  Teams will be 10U 7v7, 10U 10v10, 12U.  14U will remain playing under the Manatee Wildcats


Summer Program Youth ($375 10U&12U, $300 14U):

Practice begins Tuesday May 1st, There will be 3 practices weekly.  Two in Bradenton on Tuesday and Thursday and one mandatory Saturday or Sunday practice either in Bradenton or Wesley Chapel (that will be required to attend) and will alternate each week.  Player fees cover tournament costs, uniforms, 12 practice sessions and field rental expenses.  Teams will be formed by joint coaching efforts.  If there are enough players at a given age level to form two teams there will be an A & B team evaluation to group appropriately.  Boys 10U & 12U will receive custom uniforms (Jersey, Shorts and Shooter Shirts) to keep.  14U will use Manatee Wildcats regular season uniforms and return after the last summer tournament.

Tournaments to participate in:

June 2-3 2018 - SUMMER FACEOFF ORLANDO, Champions Gate Orlando, Hotel accommodations can be made at a discount through our team hotel of choice Bahama Bay Resort.  DISCOUNT CODE will be provided at later time when received.  Reservations calling 1-877-299-4481.  Reference being part of SUMMER FACEOFF.

June 9-10 2018 – VERO BEACH BLAST, DELRAY, FL, Dick Bird South County Park, Vero Beach, Hotel accommodations to be announced at a later date.

Summer competitive travel tournament lacrosse differs from our spring recreational program slightly. Costs are much higher to compete in tournaments and playing time is not guaranteed, but earned.  Compared to programs locally we compete with, Sarasota Seahawks charged $800 for two game, $925 for three games.  The Tampa Tarpons (ie: south tampa stix) charges $1100 for a 3 game summer program.  We feel this joint effort between programs provides great competitive teams at an affordable price maximizing your value!  10U 7v7 will be headed up by Bruce Bragg, assisted by Kris Cox, Russ Desermia and Wesley Chapel coaches.  10U 10v10 will be Nick Pagnotta with Eric Rosario and Bowen Summer.  12U will be Joe Turco with MWC & Wesley Chapel assistant coaches.

Boys will need:  Stick, Gloves, Helmet, Mouthguard, Shoulder pads, Arm pads and protective cup.  Game uniforms will be sized the first week of practice and to be kept by the players.  14U will return their Jersey and Shorts.

Please return the below portion along with your check to Manatee Wildcats Lacrosse. Payment in full is due by April 15th.  Contact Coach Nick with questions at 941-545-7342
