Blatant Events is a subdivision of Blatant Lacrosse. At Blatant Events, we are committed to bringing you the very best in Tournaments, Showcases, Camps, Clinics, Leagues and more. We have created the “Blatant Standard”, and continue to raise the bar with each event that we run. Our events are some of the biggest in the Northeast, and attract hundreds of teams and thousands of players from all over the country.
Blatant Events runs tournaments all season long: spring, summer and fall. Our philosophy of running tournaments is to create the ideal competitive weekend for players, parents and coaches. We spend countless hours communicating with coaches and directors to create as close to a “perfect” schedule as possible. A major part of our ability to do this is thru the implementation of the innovative Tourney Machine website and mobile app. Making sure every team attending our event gets matched up correctly against their opponents is our primary focus and although it’s often a seemingly impossible task, we are up for the challenge.
In addition to the actual games being played, we pride ourselves in bringing in a wide spectrum of the best vendors in the game. Along with equipment and athletic apparel stores, we provide unique and delicious local food vendors the opportunity to set-up and whip up their best creations for spectators to enjoy. In between games, kids can also participate in a Fastest Shot Contest, along with shopping for the newest lax gear on the market, or just sit back and enjoy some of the best lacrosse in the country. We pride ourselves in creating an experience unlike any other.
Our philosophy with camps is simple: low staff to player ratio, structured practice plans, and top of the line coaching. We have had some of the biggest names staff our camps over the years including Myles Jones, Tom Schreiber, Will Manny, Kieran McArdle, and Andrew Casmir just to name a few, as we continue to broaden our reach to more and more elite talent each session.
The showcase market has gotten saturated in the lacrosse world. We run showcases that have a high college coach to player ratio. Additionally, we are able to attract the top coaches, teams and players in the country through our vast lacrosse network. We provide excellent venues, top teams and players, upper echelon coaches, and ample time for student-athletes to perform in front of the college coaches.
Currently we offer leagues in the Long Island area. It gives local teams a chance, town or travel, to stay together in the winter – or get some extra work in the summer. Just like our tournaments, we have a high attention to detail when scheduling match-ups based on a variety of skill levels.
Finally, Blatant Events runs skill training clinics and small group lessons, almost every week of the year. Each skill session has its own focus; shooting, dodging, footwork, defense, goalie training, faceoff training etc. Our clinics specialize in group training where the trainer to player ratio stays between 5:1 and 10:1 depending on the lesson. We bring in some of the best in the business to assist with our clinics and training sessions and like with all of our events, we strive to offer the premier level of service on Long Island.
