The event kicks off with a keynote speech by Cal Ripkin, Jr. (yep, the MLB Hall of Famer!) and, according to John Weaver, it gets even better from there. For a few highlights of what attendees are looking forward to, check out Weaver’s latest blog post.

Though the LaxAllStars team can’t make it to Baltimore this year, we’ll be following the US Lacrosse staff and a handful of attendees via Twitter, Facebook and the US Lacrosse social network.  If there’s one thing US Lacrosse administration has done great this year, it’s building a an online presence – And now we get to take advantage and stay clued in on the action! 

We’ll do our best to keep you informed on what’s happening there, and we’ll share some of the pictures people post.  Next year, we hope to be there covering the entire event and giving readers a reason to keep their web browsers open for 2 days straight.  Until then, thank God for Twitter!

Founder of Lacrosse All Stars. A West Coast native and product of the MCLA, I moved back East after college where I truly fell in love with the game. I've dedicated my career to LaxAllStars since 2010, and I wouldn't have it any other way. I now live in my hometown of Boise, Idaho, with my wife Zoë, two dogs, and a baby girl expected to arrive around Championship Weekend this May. I'm a technologist at heart, I'm not into snow or the month of January, and one time I kind of stole a football from Gary Gait. Life is crazy busy, but it's worth it when you get to immerse yourself in the medicine of lacrosse every day. We are on a mission to Grow The Game® on a global scale by empowering storytelling by players, for players, and bridging the gap between lacrosse and the mainstream.
