General

Why should I attend Wolverine War?

If you want to spend your time playing games with your high school, middle school or club team to showcase your talent in front of Division I, II, and III coaches, then the Wolverine War is for you. We get an overwhelmingly positive response to all of our Wolverine War camps and clinics. We draw players from across the country and Canada, not just from Michigan, and many of our players and teams repeat. Of course, if you are interested in playing for a college someday, the Wolverine War is the best way to be seen by Division I, II and III College coaches and to get a chance to speak to and get instructed by these coaches at the clinic and get feel for what it would be like to attend and play at the college level one day.

What level or age of player is Wolverine War best suited for?

Wolverine War is for players rising 8th-12th grades and are suitable for players of all skill levels. Our coaching staff breaks down the group during the clinic by age/skill level, and also divides the teams attending the event into appropriate divisions for competition throughout the weekend.

Is Coach Paul at every day of Wolverine War?

Yes, Coach Paul is the director of the Wolverine War and will be in attendance each day. He may not be in attendance at each and every game.

Do you offer any camps for girls or specifically for youth players?

Sorry, no and no. Check the Michigan Summer Camps link at http://www.mgoblue.com for information on the Michigan Women’s Lacrosse summer camp.

Registration

Are there any discounts?

We do not offer any discounts for the Wolverine War.

What if I have to cancel?

Full refunds, minus a $25 administrative fee, are granted for cancellations before June 5th. After June 5th, refunds (minus the $25 administrative fee) can only be given for certified medical reasons. Certification must be in the form of a signed medical statement from a physician, and it must be received before the day Wolverine War begins or no refund can be given. Players who have to leave Wolverine War early for medical reasons will receive a pro-rated refund, minus non-waivable Wolverine War costs. Players who are asked to leave Wolverine War for disciplinary reasons will not receive any refund.

What happens if a session is cancelled?

It is possible that a session could be cancelled due to severe weather or enough rain to make the fields unplayable. This has only happened once in the history of our camps, but it is always a possibility. If a session is cancelled, we will make every effort to fill in with suitable indoor activities. We would love to have backup fields available, but if weather is forcing us to cancel chances are that fields everywhere nearby are also affected. We cannot issue refunds for sessions that are cancelled for reasons beyond our control.

When will I receive confirmation?

Upon completion of your online registration, you will receive an immediate confirmation email. All details you need to know (check-in, check-out, travel info, maps, documents that must be filled out, etc.) will be emailed to you or be found through the Wolverine War website.

How do I access my account to change my information or register for another session?

You only need to set up your account once. Once set up, you can access your account by logging back into Eventbrite.
