The Notre Dame 2013 men’s lacrosse schedule is taking shape and with that we provide the tentative schedule here. While we are fairly comfortable with the dates, assume that one or even two may move a day or two before the schedule is formalized. The game start times are decidedly TBD. With that said, the schedule is firm enough to release to you today and will be a reasonable facsimile if not 100% accurate.
As a starting point, our 2013 home away from home in South Bend will be the Ivy Court. Details on rates and timing will be published shortly. The Ivy is walking distance from the lacrosse field and the proprietor is a friend of the program. We’d like as many of the parents to stay there as possible because, well, its more fun that way.
The away hotels will be provided as soon as available – we are told very soon. In most instances we will stay in the same hotel as the team. All the roadshow details will of course follow accordingly.
As you will see, we will once again start our traveling parent show in Disney in January. This is the third year in a row the boys will be in Orlando to kick the scrimmage season. Season highlights include an appearance in Mile High Stadium in Denver and a match up with Syracuse in Met Life Stadium in the Meadowlands, New Jersey as part of the Big City Classic.
