Support Nick's House & HEADstrong

Victory was inspired to make Cowboy Cup 2020 a platform to support families affected by cancer after learning of the courageous story of Lilly Camp, a 9-year old hero from nearby Lantana, Texas who is battling Metastatic Retinoblastoma.  Lilly resides just 27 miles from Russell Creek Park but is currently more than 1,500 miles away from home as she is receiving treatment at Children’s Hospital of Philadelphia.  While undergoing care in Philadelphia, Lilly and her family are staying at Nick’s House, a guest residence owned and operated by the HEADstrong Foundation for families displaced in pursuit of advanced cancer care. Victory Event Series is based just miles from Nick’s House, in nearby Thornton, PA.   

Players, parents, and Texas lacrosse community members can contribute to the Cowboy Cup pledge drive at pledge.headstrong.org/cowboycup2020.

Directions for Players to Access their FREE SportsRecruits Profile

Victory is teaming up with SportsRecruits to generate roster books for college coaches at our event. This will provide each high school player with a free SportsRecruits profile and put student-athletes in control of what information is in the coaches books (especially detailed academic and athletic information)! They will also be able to keep their info up to date in the college coaches’ digital roster leading up to, during, and after the event.

After parents submit the liability waiver (see directions above), high school players will receive an email from SportsRecruits. Players will then be able to access and update their free SportsRecruits profile, which will be shared with college coaches before, during, and after the Victory tournament! In addition, players can utilize the school search to research every college program in the country, build and organize a list of favorite schools, and effortlessly email any coach in the country!

College coaches will be in front of their computer a lot in the coming weeks! Club coaches should invite their players ASAP to provide players with access to Victory’s liability waiver, a spot in the college coaches’ roster booklet, and their free online recruiting profile from SportsRecruits!
