Gathering some of the most elite club teams out there, the inaugural Adrenaline Fall Invitational will take place on Saturday and Sunday on the campus of Plymouth-Whitemarsh High School in suburban Philadelphia. With essentially every Division I staff set to attend and a great list of teams and players, the event is expected to be a massive hit, as the renowned California-based company hopes to carry over their success gained from June’s Platinum Cup.
With that said, ADRLN’s Fall Invitational will essentially act as a tryout for the 2015 edition of the well received Platinum Cup, a phenomenal boutique event that featured just eight teams in each age group.
“We really wanted to build off the Platinum Cup success and do a similar thing in the fall where we capped the number of teams but had some new faces,” says Jono Zissi, Adrenaline’s Director of Recruiting and the West Coast Starz. “It becomes a great opportunity to let emerging teams play to basically audition for the summer event, which is already in high demand.”
The teams gearing up to play this weekend will be ADVNC, Building Blocks, HEADStrong, LB3, LI Express, LI Outlaws, Madlax, FCA Northeast, NJ Riot, NJLC, Prime Time, Rock, Shamrocks, SweetLax, Tropics, Tenacious Turtles, VLC Blue Crabs and the West Coast Starz.
“Even with tons of Division I commits, some of these teams are low on the radar so we’re excited to see what they bring to the table,” Zissi said. “Because it’s one of our priorities to ensure that our top West Coast Starz kids can be seen by the best college programs, it’s nice to have a hand to who comes to the event and do everything we possibly can to control the controllables.”
I will be there on Sunday covering the best teams and players, so check back for a recap.
