ABOUT THE TRIP

The GRYPHONPack had a whirlwind trip to the USA in 2017 where they embarked on a roadtrip down the East coast coaching at various college summer camps! International players Kathryn Slattery (Australia) and Carla Rebecchi (Argentina) starred the lineup, along with England representative Kim Leiper, Australias' Reid Smith, and Lucas Sevestre from France.

The tour started in New York before traveling south to Philadelphia for the 4th of July celebrations, and our first camp was at the University of Pennsylvania. We were lucky enough to be able to attend a baseball game featuring the mighty Phillies, topping off a fantastic start to the trip. Following this amazing reception we continued along to camps at Potomac school and Cortland before spending the weekend exploring New York. We then kicked on to Fairfield and Rutgers University, before finishing up the amazing trip at the University of North Carolina.

At every camp we were met with enthusiasm and excitement about the new GRYPHON range, showcasing our different sticks and equipment. Our diverse GRYPHON ambassadors were able to share many different stories and perspectives to inspire the young players. A whole lot of fun was had and the energy around the camps was exciting to see!

It was an incredible experience and a massive thanks to all who helped make it happen, including our amazing distributor Longstreth Sporting Goods who facilitated the trip.
