Adrenaline Starz is excited to announce the newest member of the Starz family, Saddleback Starz of Orange County.  As a local affiliate team, Saddleback will work in conjunction with the OC Kings to service all of Orange County. Adrenaline Starz is sponsored by industry leader STX Lacrosse.  Saddleback will receive the full benefits of the Adrenaline System including the Adrenaline Treatment and customized Adrenaline Training Programs to continue program growth.

In its inaugural season, Saddleback Starz will look to continue the growth of lacrosse in Orange County.  Director Brendan Finnerty, a former Division 1 captain and High School All-American, understands the dynamics of team collaboration and how to motivate players to take their game to the next level.  With this knowledge and experience, Saddleback is designed to give players the opportunity to develop their fundamental lacrosse skills and ultimately shape players to compete at elite high school and collegiate levels.  "I am so excited to be joining forces with the Adrenaline Starz family. I know the combination of the two will bring great things for lacrosse in the Orange County region," commented Finnerty.  

Saddleback Starz will work together with its regional counterpart, the OC Kings, to provide excellent lacrosse instruction for a wide range of players in Orange County. Only OC Kings players are eligible for West Coast Starz NSCLA and SoCal Sectional teams; however, Saddleback Starz players are all encouraged to tryout for the Kings team.  Saddleback Starz Director, Brendan Finnerty, will also be directing the OC Kings, making him one of the programs top evaluators. OC Kings founder, Xander Ritz, could not be more excited for the new local affiliate, "We're really excited to have Saddleback joining the Starz family.  Brendan is a great leader with a passion for developing talent.  Between his role running Saddleback and his new role as a Director of OC Kings, he will be championing the cause of lacrosse players in OC all year round."

Summer 2013 tryouts will be held on March 16, 2013, at Capistrano Valley High School.
