Welcome to the 12th Annual Liberty Lacrosse Shootout – a competitive youth lacrosse tournament for boys and girls in a fun and festive atmosphere that celebrates lacrosse, camaraderie and sportsmanship.
Over 100 teams and 2500 youth players are expected to participate in what has become one of the most popular day tournaments in the Mid-Atlantic region. The Shootout is conveniently situated within a few hours’ drive from a number of lacrosse hotbeds, permitting day trips and ensuring good competition. Liberty draws teams from, among other places, Greater Philadelphia, Mid-Penn, Lehigh Valley, New Jersey, Maryland, New York and Connecticut.
Our 2015 Tournament will feature four boys’ divisions (U9, U11, U13, U15). Each division will feature two or more brackets to help each team find the appropriate level of play for a great day of festival lacrosse. New in 2015, the event is open to “Club” and “Travel Teams” looking for elite competition; we will field brackets based on interest.

The Shootout venues are exceptional and the festival features the hallmarks of a professionally-staged event. The GCVSA Line Road Complex, the host site, includes 8 sprinklered fields that are adjacent to scenic and protected land in historic Willistown Township, Chester County. The Phelps School, less than a mile away, will host our secondary site on its well-maintained fields.
The Shootout features “Vendor Villages/Fun Zones” conveniently located in the heart of each field complex, where participants and guests will find a range of lacrosse vendors, food, beverages, clinics, competitions and entertainment.
Team tents will abound along the perimeter and you can count on a great day of lacrosse and fellowship in a comfortable and congenial atmosphere.
