The tournament will be played on 3 astroturf fields which are used by some of the greatest hockey clubs in the world each year at tournaments held at the Hurley. Practice areas and full changing and shower facilities are also available.
FOOD: Food will be sold by cuisine sponsors vending in the clubhouse and beer, soda, etc. will be served all day. Juices, some beer, tea, coffee and light fare are served in the clubhouse at all times. Prices are almost identical to those in the US.
TIMES: Games will begin at 9 or 10 am and wrap up each day with a 5 o'clock game. It gets dark at 10:30 pm in August in Amsterdam so the party starts late.
AGE LIMIT: This is an 18 AND OVER tournament. All team members must be over 18. No exceptions.
HOTELS: There are so many great neighborhoods in Amsterdam. We'll include lots of info in the registration package we send out, but there's something for everyone in Amsterdam. August is tourist season in Holland so book flights and Hotels early to save money!
THE CITY: Amsterdam is a cultural, art, leisure, culinary and party center and a weekend vacation spot for many Europeans. The museums are second to none, the jazz, techno and house music play until 5 am, the sidewalk cafes are buzzing and shopping is a sport. The locals speak perfect english, and American too. They love Field Hockey and Soccer and will love lacrosse when they get a chance to see it. Be nice to them and they will be very nice to you. Welcome to the coolest city and the hottest tournament on the planet!
