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!“

CHAD WILKINSON, PRESIDENT OF AIST / CEO

„AIST has been traveling to Prague for tournaments for the past 10 years. We

have been working closely with the Prague Cup Organizers and the Prague

Sports Committee to create great opportunities for athletes traveling abroad.

The Prague Sports Team does a great job of setting up hotels, sightseeing

excursions, meals, social events, tournaments, exhibition games and other

sports tour service needs. It’s been a pleasure working with Bohdan, Eva and

Barbara! Their commitment to helping athletes to enjoy a remarkable experience

exceeds all expectations. They are very detailed and organized with all travel and

tournament arrangements. They have the capability of handling a large amount

of groups and it’s always done in a professional manner with great care for the

clients.“
