Last weekend, Coronado Lacrosse Club headed to Salt Lake City, Utah, to compete in a regional lacrosse tournament that drew teams from all over the west. America’s Finest Rivalry, organized by San Diego-based, locally owned Adrenaline Lacrosse, brought a wide range of teams from west of the Mississippi. Coronado Lacrosse Club (CLC) Select, coached by Loren Generi and Courtney Reidarson, sent a team consisting of sixth and seventh grade players primarily from Coronado.
The girls secured the number one seed due to their strong performance on the first day of play, but came up short in the championship round by two goals to an impressive team from San Francisco. Their play was astounding as they are the first CLC Select team to travel to an interstate contest.
The CLC Select team began training July 1, adhering to strict COVID-19 guidelines. Given the nature of those restrictions, game play and scrimmages were prohibited and the girls adapted their training to prepare for competition in a highly physical sport without compromising safety. The girls initially planned only to participate in local tournaments but as the pandemic has altered large group events, club leadership and the coaches worked with parents to explore other options.
CLC is a local girls’ lacrosse club that provides a spectrum of options for girls from grade kindergarten through eighth grade. Over the last few years, interest in the sport has grown and participation has exceeded expectations. CLC Select was created in response to the growing demand for girls lacrosse training. CLC offers training throughout the school year and focuses on serving the needs of the community. Both recreational and select options are available.
