Phoenixville, PA based Ultimate Events and Sports is preparing to welcome over 320 teams to their latest girls’ lacrosse tournament, The Grind. The Grind, which will feature youth and high school teams from 17 states, will take place in Chester County, PA, at several nearby fields from July 6-8.
“We are very excited to welcome another talented group of teams to this year’s The Grind,” said Ultimate Events and Sports Co-Owner Rebecca Wells. “The Grind is one of the summer’s premier tournaments, and we are excited to give many of the nation’s elite players an opportunity to showcase their skills in front of coaches from many competitive colleges.
Hundreds of college coaches have confirmed their attendance, including coaches from programs like Boston University, Colegate, Fairfield, George Mason, Navy, Northwestern, Princeton, Temple, UMass, Louisville, Michigan, Notre Dame, Villanova, and Yale.
One of the largest and most competitive tournaments in the nation, The Grind is also a USL National Qualifier for U13s-U11s. Teams will be grouped by similar levels of play to help ensure all games are competitive. The Grind offers more playing time than most tournaments, offering athletes more opportunity to be seen by college coaches, giving teams the best value for their fee.
“The Grind is one of our highest attended events by both players and coaches, and each year we hear stories about players making meaningful connections with the college coaches that attend. We are excited for another opportunity to connect players with coaches across the nation.”
