Thanks to all the coaches, players, parents, sponsors, fans, staff and vendors who participated in 2015 Liberty Lacrosse Shootout. The Tournament featured 84 teams, representing Southeastern Pennsylvania, Central Pennsylvania, the Lehigh Valley, New Jersey, New York and Maryland. As expected, the competition was strong and consistent with our Honor the Game standard.
We were blessed with great weather this year and we trust everyone was comfortable and enjoyed the set-up.
We have posted the team records by bracket as well as the results (including sportstmanship scores) of all pool play and playoff games – click here. We were pleased to see so many closely contested games and a handful of matches that ended in “Bravehearts.”
We tried in many cases to group teams based on the average grade of the players on the team. Next year we will consider organizing our brackets differently and will focus primarily on grade/graduation year with AA, A and B brackets.
We have also posted pictures of the Champions and Finalists in each of the brackets. Congratulations in particular to SPA for winning the featured U15A Kip Taviano Division. Click here to see the pictures!
As always, thank you to Greater Chester Valley Soccer Association for permitting us to use their wonderful field complex for the event. Special thanks to Bryn Mawr Rehabilitation Hospital for allowing us to use a portion of their front expanse for parking, and to the Natural Lands Trust for permitting foot traffic from BMRH through the Willistown Preserve.
We invite and encourage you to give us your feedback. We have used the testimonials and constructive input in the past to improve the event, and we would expect to continue to do so. If you enjoyed the experience, please also tell other coaches and teams in your programs and leagues about the Shootout. We think we have developed something special over the last eleven years and want to continue staging a robust and worthwhile tradition.
On behalf of the Tournament organizers, we appreciate your participation and sportsmanship and hope you had a fun and festive time. We look forward to seeing you again at the Liberty Lacrosse Shootout next year – June 11th and 12th. Registration for 2016 Shootout will open soon.
In the meantime, wear those Tournament T-Shirts proudly and keep “Cradlin’ in the Cradle” and playing for the joy of the Creator! And remember, as our Native American forbears knew — “The Ball is the Medicine.”
