Early Bird Special registration remains open for the 11th Annual Liberty Lacrosse Shootout, the popular end-of-season boys’ and girls’ youth lacrosse festival in Malvern. The event will take place June 7/8 at the GCVSA Line Road Complex and The Phelps School.
• Approximately 110 teams and 2500 youth players are expected to participate;
• Teams will play at least 3 games in diverse pools within their bracket; pool winners advance in a playoff format;
• Two brackets (A/B) are available in each division to help align teams that are organized by grade/ability to ensure games remain highly competitive (expect to see some 4v4 Bravehearts!);
• Shootout venues are exceptional — the Festival features certified officials, licensed athletic trainers and all the hallmarks of a professionally-staged event (the kids will experience a true tournament atmosphere!);
• The Shootout is conveniently situated within a few hours’ drive from a number of lacrosse hotbeds, permitting day trips and ensuring good competition. Liberty draws teams from, among other places, Greater Philadelphia, Mid-Penn, Lehigh Valley, New Jersey, Maryland, New York and Connecticut;
• Expect a great day of lacrosse and camaraderie in a fun and festive atmosphere with great competition, food, refreshments, Vendor Village and a Fan Zone (featuring clinics and competitions);
• Team tents will abound along the perimeter of the properties, so plan to get situated, comfortable and just enjoy the spirit of the game in friendship!
• Registration Fee: $775 (“Early Bird Special” of $725 for teams/programs that register and pay on or before February 28th);
• Teams in each age group will be recognized for sportsmanship based largely on conduct scorecards kept by Shootout officials and site marshals after each game.
To register or to obtain more information, please visit the Shootout website – http://www.libertylacrosse.com. Space is limited. It is anticipated the Shootout will fill up in advance of the deadline (May 2nd), as it has the past 10 years.

The Shootout is a fun way to punctuate the season with your players and their families. We welcome you, your teams and your entourage to join in the fun and the tradition, Cradling in the Cradle of Liberty™.
