U15 Festival Headed Back to N.Y.

June 14, 2010    5361 Views

BALTIMORE – US Lacrosse returns one of its most celebrated events to Golden Goal Park in Lake George, N.Y. June 18-20. The 2010 US Lacrosse U-15 National Youth Festival, presented by Warrior, will bring together 20 boys and 16 girls lacrosse teams for a weekend to "honor the game."

The US Lacrosse National Youth Festivals focus on sportsmanship, teamwork, respect and tradition. No scores are kept, no champions are crowned and no MVP awards are given. This event is about the experience young athletes have playing the sport, celebrating the game, and enjoying team camaraderie.

"Golden Goal has proven to be a wonderful site to host a large lacrosse event," said Kim Rogers, lead event manager at US Lacrosse. "The athletes love staying in cabins right on site in the Athlete’s Village and having meals in the Dining Hall. It adds to the excitement and mission of bringing together young athletes from all over the country to celebrate the sport of lacrosse."

This is US Lacrosse’s third year hosting the event at Golden Goal Park.
