To Lax… What’s new for the 2015 tourney? More teams, more lacrosse, more NYC! The 5th annual SSZ Invitational will be back at Randall’s Island, with NYC skyline behind every goal and big hit. We are expanding the Womens and Masters divisions to get more Lax to the people.

To Give… Once again, the Avon Walk for Breast Cancer will be the beneficiary of a portion of the proceeds raised at this yearly event. Thanks to the Invitational in 2014, along with A Game To Give, and individual donations, the Salt Shakerz raised over $10,000 toward their community service endeavors for Breast Cancer Awareness. The Shakerz continue to champion breast cancer initiatives and this tournament represents what lacrosse is all about. Giving back to the community.

Details for 2015:

This year the tournament is going country as the island is going to be shared by the FarmBorough Country Music Festival. This will provide great tunes and thousands of music lovers to enhance the experience.2015 salt shakerz lacrosse

Men’s Division (16 Teams)

Every team will be guaranteed to play four games. Three games on Saturday (June 27th), with the playoffs being held on Sunday (June 28th). The tournament teams will be split up into groups representing the New York City “boroughs” for round-robin play. The top seed of each borough will advance to the playoffs. The remaining three spots will be wild cards, awarded on total points.

Additionally, after taking feedback from prior tournaments, the Shakerz have set up consolation games for the remaining teams that do not make the playoffs, which will also take place on Sunday.
