The fourth annual adidas National Lacrosse Classic has announced that registration is open for next summer’s tournament July 5-8 at the Maryland Soccerplex.
The event features the top scholastic boys’ lacrosse players (entering grades 10, 11, 12) from eight regions. Twenty teams – including one from Philadelphia – will play before dozens of college coaches after regional tryouts are held in June.
Players must be in good academic standing and aspire to play lacrosse at the collegiate level. Regional team tryouts and the National Games are scheduled to avoid conflicts with SAT testing dates, high school and club lacrosse team activities and tournaments and offer players the best opportunity to supplement their lacrosse playing activities while providing a true competitive process to benchmark playing ability and skills against other players from a wider geographic area. Perfect for rising sophomores, juniors and seniors.

The High School National Games will be held July 5-8, 2011 at the Maryland Soccerplex. The midweek dates are the most convenient for college coaches to attend the event while avoiding calendar conflicts with summer club team tournaments typically scheduled for the weekends. Players that are selected to the team will be notified within 2 days of the tryout date.
