The Pacific Northwest played host to the Rabil Tour's most recent lacrosse action, with stops in Seattle and Portland. Clear blue skies (with appreciation for rarity) and two picturesque fields provided a backdrop to a pair of events that sold out faster than any other in the Rabil Tour lineup. We expected energy and the players and parents over-delivered. One surprise for the events? Talent - lots of it. Though traditionally under-served as emerging lacrosse markets, skill onfield was undeniable - particularly at the higher age levels. These were two of the most engaged cities that we've seen to date. Players listened intently and asked questions - and parents did the same. Prediction: curiosity, abundant raw talent, and a passion for lacrosse will materialize into an increasingly formidable lacrosse territory in the Northwest. These towns will keep producing, and we'll be back to keep an eye on it... and put on a show of course.
This experience was, in a word, Amazing! I refer to the event as an experience - and not a clinic or a camp - because it was way, way more than just a clinic. The Rabil team has thoughtfully crafted an event that immerses players and parents into the world of the most dynamic player in the game.- Malcolm Chase [Parent & Boston Cannons Player, Boston]
My son, Austin, is still on cloud nine for winning the belt. As we were walking out of the event he said "This might be the most memorable night of my life". So, thanks again for inspiring all of the kids. The impact is real.- Brett Simpson [Parent, Los Angeles]
Our son had the time of his life! He won the Braveheart skills competition for 11U. He proudly brought his new autographed stick home and placed it on his bed with his jersey, autographed PR hat & player card. I'm sure that night will be a memory he will never forget.- Ericka Sasser [Parent, San Francisco]
My son had a blast and was so happy he got to meet his idol. Everything at the event (including the VIP experience) was worth every penny.- Scott Redmond [Parent, Boston]
My son had an AMAZING time last weekend at Oaks Christian. He is still talking about it as — "the best day of my life." Thank you all for coming to our neck of the woods and for getting our boys excited and energized about the game. You all did a really wonderful job.- Cornelia Taylor [Parent, Los Angeles]
My son had an amazing time! We didn't really know what to expect as this was his first lax season and first experience with the Tour. We were so impressed with how much time Paul spent with the kids and thought his instruction and input/perspective were invaluable. What a great experience! Thank you!- Ashley C. Goldberg [Parent, Denver]
We travelled from Nova Scotia, Canada to the recent DC camp and the experience exceeded expectations. The subtle nuances and insight delivered by Paul will improve our game at every level. This is a dynamic, fun and engaging event that will resonate for a long time.- Brian Swallow [Parent, Canada]
