From Press Release
There is still time for teams to secure a spot in the Liberty Lacrosse Shootout – a competitive boys’ youth lacrosse tournament held at the Line Road Field Complex in Malvern, PA.
It is encouraged that teams register by Friday, May 27th, space permitting. Some brackets may fill up before then so don’t delay.
“Liberty” has earned its reputation as one of the most popular day tournaments in the Mid-Atlantic region over the last 12 years. The Shootout is a few hours’ drive from lacrosse hotbeds, permitting day trips and ensuring diverse competition. We expect teams from Greater Philadelphia, Mid-Penn, Lehigh Valley, Pittsburgh, New Jersey, Maryland and New York.
The Line Road venue is second to none and features 8 well-groomed grass fields – all immediately adjacent to each other. The Shootout set-up and site configuration reflects the professional expertise of experienced tournament operators, who believe a fun, safe, manageable and festive atmosphere for players, coaches and parents is paramount.
The tournament features four divisions (U9/U13 play on Saturday; U11/U15 play on Sunday). We follow age segmentation guidelines to organize brackets by age / grade / ability / graduation year (for more info, registration, click here) and to ensure teams are playing in the most appropriate level. We typically field at least two brackets in each age group to help teams find their optimal level. The event is open to “Club” and “Travel Teams” looking for elite competition; we will field elite brackets based on interest.
Each team will play at least 3 pool games with certified officials and rules designed to promote safety. Pool play winners advance in a playoff format.
After a spring campaign with so many weather cancelations, treat your teams to a great end-of-season celebration of lacrosse, camaraderie and sportsmanship. Bring your teams, bring your tents, set up in a rustic setting and count on a great day of lacrosse and fellowship in a comfortable and congenial atmosphere.
Please consider joining us at the Liberty Shootout, whether for a memorable spring season finale or to christen your summer schedule.
