On Sunday, November 9 in Brick, New Jersey, Trilogy Lacrosse held their inaugural Veterans Day tournament featuring 40 teams from across the tri-state in an effort to raise funding and awareness for the Wounded Warrior Project (WWP).
Seven boys divisions competed all day Sunday until a winner was crowned in each category. Each team was guaranteed at least 3 games plus the crowning of a champion.
10% of all fees were donated upfront to the WWP and team were encouraged to participate in additional fundraising opportunities at the local level to continue efforts in the nearby communities.

Like all Trilogy Lacrosse tournaments, special attention was paid to scheduling, parking, field location and operational excellence to ensure everyone who participated could focus on the most important aspects of the day – spending time with friends and teammates and playing great lacrosse.
The vendor village included food options ranging from Jersey Eatz to Local Urban Kitchen to Jersey Mike’s Subs while apparel and shopping vendors filled out the rest of the central HQ area.
Trilogy Lacrosse also introduced yet another first to the industry by providing the option for access to a special Hospitality Experience.
The Hospitality Experience included a Hot or Organic Buffet option, a Motive Pure hydration station, massage services from Pampered Soul Massage and seating in front of Plasma TVs with the Sunday NFL Package, all within a climate controlled atmosphere.
Participants who purchased Hospitality Experience tickets were also entered into multiple raffles throughout the day for over $1500 worth of Under Armour and Trilogy Lacrosse prizes.
With the sun shining, temperatures in the upper 50’s, and teams competing hard to earn a berth in the Championship game, it was the perfect day of lacrosse. The eventual winners took home Trilogy Lacrosse and WWP dog tags as well as bragging rights until next year’s event.
Trilogy Lacrosse will host 6 tournaments this summer including events in GA, MD, NJ, PA, and RI. Visit the Trilogy website to learn more!
