The Vail Lacrosse Shootout is back for its full tournament format again in 2021. Due to COVID-19 restrictions in 2020, only an unofficial tournament took place with socially distanced staff members. This year’s event will commence on June 26 and conclude on the Fourth of July holiday. The Shootout will look much like it has in years past while still adhering to local health ordinances.
This summer about 2,000 lacrosse players from the ages of 17 to 60 will once again convene in the scenic mountain resort of Vail, Colo. Teams will compete across nine divisions over nine days, bringing exciting and competitive lacrosse action to the Colorado mountains.
The first weekend of the tournament kicks off with the Men’s Supermaster (age 40-50), Grandmaster (age 50-60), and Zenmaster (age 60+) divisions on Saturday, June 26. The U19 Boys and Girls divisions begin the following day featuring some of the country’s top young competitors.
The second half of the tournament begins on July 1 with the Men’s and Women’s Elite and Men’s and Women’s Masters (30+) divisions. This will be the first year a Women’s Masters division is on the schedule.
The highlight of the tournament is always the Men’s Elite Division, bringing fast-paced, exciting lacrosse action to the field. Collegiate and post-collegiate club players, as well as some veteran professional players will gather in Vail to battle for the championship starting on July 1 and continuing through July 4.
The 2021 Shootout will again offer live streaming of semi-final and final games in many of our tournament divisions. For more information about live streaming, go to the tournament website, www.vaillacrosse.com.
