SPARKS, Md. — US Lacrosse today opened registration at uslacrosse.org/laxcon for the annual US Lacrosse Convention and Fan Fest, set for Jan. 20-22, 2017, in Baltimore. LaxCon represents lacrosse’s largest educational event, trade show and kickoff to the season.

Coaches, officials, and program leaders can register for the full US Lacrosse Convention for as low as $100 for US Lacrosse members and $160 for the general public. Tickets for the US Lacrosse Fan Fest, a portion of LaxCon’s Jan. 21 schedule open to lacrosse fans of all ages, start at $10 per person.

“LaxCon represents an invaluable event at which coaches and officials can further their development through the numerous formal educational sessions and informal networking opportunities,” said Kim Rogers, director of events at US Lacrosse.

The US Lacrosse Convention is comprised of approximately 150 educational sessions, many of which occur on four indoor demonstration areas surrounded by seating for attendees. The convention’s expo hall will feature 150 exhibitors, showcasing the latest lacrosse gear and apparel. Nick Myers, head coach of the Ohio State men’s team, and Taylor Cummings, a three-time women’s Tewaaraton Award winner, highlight the confirmed speakers to date.

The US Lacrosse Fan Fest will open the expo hall and demonstration areas to the public 11 a.m. to 5 p.m. Saturday, Jan. 21. Numerous US Lacrosse committees and other lacrosse organizations will host business meetings throughout the weekend.
