TEAM TOTAL TRAVEL LACROSSE
After a very successful summer, Team Total will travel to Tampa, Florida over the Christmas break to compete among the best travel teams in the country at Dick’s Sports National Tournament of Champions.
Team Total will compete in the Elite division which features top teams from around the country. “Most of these teams will have players who are going to play Division 1 lacrosse in a year,” said Dwayne Hicks, the head coach and director of Team Total. “We have several top players on our team as well. Some of the best players in the Detroit area play at Total and will be making the trip.”
This is the second trip to the national championships for Team Total. Two years ago they finished third, losing to the national champions in the semi’s and beating Northern Ontario/Six Nations in the consolation round.
According to Hicks, “this will be a great opportunity for Total players to compete against some of the best players in the country. It will help prepare them for the spring season. Plus, it’s not often a high school player gets a chance to compete for a national championship.“
The Dick’s National Tournament of Champions will start on Monday, December 29 and a national champion will be crowned on December 31. Team Total players are practicing now in preparation for the trip.
Started in 2007, Team Total is a select travel team made up of some of the best players in the metro Detroit area. Our goal is to provide players with college level training and allow them to compete against other top players from around the country. While winning is important, the ultimate goal is to prepare our young men and women for challenges they will encounter off the field as much as on the field. For us, lacrosse is more than a game, it’s an experience.
