Said about the tournament
LAUREN REID, CO-OWNER & HEAD COACH OF MAINEiax LACROSSE
„I had the pleasure of working with the Pink flamingos Team in Prague Cup 2014 as a coach and a player and loved every moment of it! The tournament is well run and organized with multiple teams from all over Europe and the US. The locals are amazing people that made me feel very welcomed and comfortable! The tram made it easy to get around from downtown Praha to the fields, and our games were well matched and very competitive! The weather was perfect to play in that time of year, and the facility was really well maintained! I loved seeing how Czech women have carried on such a wonderful tradition and culture of lacrosse that is their very own. This is a tournament that I highly recommend getting involved with! The country is gorgeous, food is delicious, site seeing is breath taking, and your money goes very far here as an American. I couldn't have asked for a better trip or playing and coaching experience for my first time overseas!“
