There is still time to register for the Liberty Lacrosse Shootout, one of the original and most popular tournaments on the youth lacrosse calendar. The event will take place June 6-7 in Malvern, the registration deadline is May 15th. Space is limited. It is anticipated the Shootout will fill up in advance of the deadline as it has the past 11 years!
Over 100 boys’ teams and 2500 youth players are expected to participate, competing for a diverse group of recreational teams and club/travel programs! The tournament set up and the fields of play are second to none. We hope we’ll see your groups and their team tents in June at the Shootout, making memories and Cradling in the Cradle of Liberty™.
