2022 Summer HS Tournaments (2025-2023):

These are all very strong, high-profile tournaments with a variety of college coaches in attendance.  


2022 Summer Tournaments (U10 - 2026):


As an organization there are a number of factors that go into the tournament selection each Fall/Summer, but the overarching theme is a great experience for our families, and great opportunities for our players.


We look at locations that:
-Can minimize travel time and cost
-Are close proximity to an amusement park or weekend getaway 
-Take you into a lacrosse hotbed

We look at dates that:
-Give you the Fourth of July with your family
-Give enough time before summer ends and school begins for time with family

We look for competition that:
-Pushes the oldest groups (MS and HS) to compete at an A level
-Opens the eyes of younger ages (12U), and encourages them to stretch their development goals
-Encourages the youngest ages (10U) to have fun and foster the love for the sport 

We look for hosts that:
-Are well organized leading up to, during and following the events
-Are reputable and established
-Have quality communication and availability

2022 Spring/Summer Lax Academy

The Spring/Summer Lax academy is for those players who wish to continue playing but might not be ready for the travel aspect.

The 79er Lax Academy goal is to help players grow their skills, develop at an age appropriate level, and continue playing through the summer season. Although the academy does not include formal games there may be times throughout the academy season we scrimmage among our other players/teams. 

Academy Schedule will be on Tuesday and Thursdays May 31st to July 21st

6U/8U Beginners
- 1 hour grass field practice from 6 - 7 pm
- Soft Lacrosse gloves and sticks only for new players who are interested in learning to play lacrosse but have not played before.  

8U/10U

- Full equipment for players who have played at least one season with their community team but want to keep practicing this summer. 

12U

 - For new players or returning players who want to continue playing during the summer season but do not want to travel or are not at the skill level to play travel. 

14U 
- 1.5 hour practice on Turf Field 7-8:30 pm
- For new players or returning players who want to continue playing during the summer season but do not want to travel or are not at the skill level to play travel. 


The 10U, 12U, and 14U 79er Lax Academy players will receive the same uniform that travel club players receive. This is to allow them to be promoted to a club team if a coach determines they're ready or help a club team due to injury or a player missing for a vacation.
