The California Lax Classic, which benefits the HEADstrong Foundation, has been expanded to a two-day tournament this year that will be held July 9-10 in San Juan Capistrano, CA.
Along with teams from Philly, squads from the following states will be represented: California, Washington, Utah, and Arizona.
The tourney, which last year was for Boys’ U15 and U13 teams, is expanding to include boys’ and girls’ High School teams (Elite and HS Divisions). Click here for coverage of last year’s event.
The tournament is hosted by Team Relentless, a U15 club lacrosse team created to raise money for the HEADstrong Foundation. Team Relentless, located in Orange County, has modeled itself after the HEADstrong Foundation and its mission by raising money and awareness of blood cancers on the West Coast.
Team Relentless is coached by former Radnor and Maryland standout Max Ritz and former Johns Hopkins star Kyle Harrison. The two are also co-founders of the LXM Pro tour, which debuted on the East Coast last summer at Radnor.
