Lacrosse – Anything & Everything – What else is there?

After the tryouts are over….

Posted by Barry Marenberg on October 20, 2011

A few weeks ago I wrote an article about the realities of summer elite lacrosse team tryouts.  The article was very well received and generated a great deal of discussion.  I just read a fantastic article from Trevor Tierney entitled “Surviving the Cut”. 

For those of you who don’t recognize the surname, Trevor is the son of Bill Tierney, one of the greatest collegiate lacrosse coaches ever.  Coach Tierney coached Princeton to 6 NCAA Div. I Championships in the 90s and 2001.  Trevor played goalie for his Dad at Princeton and was on two of the aforementioned National Championship teams.  Trevor was also a two-time Team USA goaltender for the World Lacrosse Championships and a former All-World goaltender.  He is a three-time MLL All-Star and won a MLL championship.  Since retiring he has served as a defensive assistant for his fathers University of Denver team. 

Trevor is also the founder of TIER Lacrosse and recently launched an awesome website for TIER lacrosse (Tier Lacrosse).  His latest post on Surviving the Cut is here:  Surviving The Cut. It’s a must-read for any lacrosse player (and his parents) currently going through the trials and tribulations of elite lacrosse team tryouts.
