The 2017 CityLax Southampton Shootout will once again take over the fields at Southampton HS out on Long Island, and this charity tournament benefits public school lacrosse in New York City!
This is a superb tournament, and it’s been running for 8 years already. 2017 marks the event’s 9th year, and this one day charity tourney has only gotten better with time. While you obviously get the typical club teams (for men and women!), you also get a great turnout of Alumni teams, where former HS or college players come back together to get some old man games in.
The Shootout has seen teams from Tufts, Virginia, Hopkins, Yale, Amherst, Wesleyan, Williams, Dickinson, Chaminade, and many others. This year’s line up is looking good already, with a number of these top level alumni slated to come back. Add in the men’s club teams and a growing women’s side to the tournament, AND a beach party afterwards, and you’ve got something special.
