June 2022, TBD - $500
Known as the highest altitude tournament in the country, the Vail Lacrosse Tournament is a family-friendly competition, drawing nearly 2,000 players and 3,000 spectators to the Vail Valley! One of the few high-altitude tournaments of its kind, the event draws participants from around the country to compete while taking in the gorgeous Vail landscape and all the activities the area has to offer. Each summer FCA invites talent from around the country, taking multiple Boy and Girls teams to breathtaking Vail, CO to compete in the Vail Lacrosse Shootout. This year the tournament will be held from June 21st-23rd.
Although the lacrosse in Vail will be amazing, one of the highlights of this trip is the off field fellowship and ministry that takes place. Our off the field activities will include team Bible studies and Huddles surrounding the FCA National theme for the summer. Each huddle is led by current college players. And of course, let’s not forget the opportunities to go white water rafting and even a late night ranch style cookout!
Games start on Monday, June 17th and are played till Wednesday, June 19th. We ask that families to arrive in Vail by 2:00 pm on Sunday, June 16th if possible. The tournament ends in the afternoon on Wednesday, June 19th. Keep in mind on this day that Championship Games usually end around 1:00pm, plus with group pictures, good-byes and a two-hour drive to the airport it is challenging to leave on Wednesday. This is why we encourage everyone to fly out on Thursday, June 20th. Family are more than welcome to come into Vail earlier or stay later for family vacation time.
The $500.00 fee covers your son’s participation in the tournament. Each player will also receive an FCA Bible, Under Armour Shirt and shorts. Additionally, all players and family members are invited and strongly encouraged to attend two amazing group dinners provided by FCA. You won’t want to miss out!
Yes, there will be extras for parents and those who are interested. Limited quantities though so first come first serve!
Unfortunately, we do not have control of the game schedule and we wait patiently on the release from the Tournament Director. A lot of the activities that we will do together are based on the tournament schedule so once it is released we will finalize the group activities.
Once rosters have been completely finalized we will make sure that they are sent out to all participating families. Additionally, we will have laminated rosters to hand out to all parents at the fields!
