(Wesley Chapel, FL) November 3, 2021 — The North Tampa Lacrosse Alliance, an organized group of youth lacrosse programs in North Tampa featuring Wesley Chapel Youth Lacrosse, New Tampa Lacrosse Association, and RADD Sports, has launched the “Small-Ball Fall Free-For-All” lacrosse tournament for boys and girls scheduled for December 4th, 2021 at Wesley Chapel District Park.

A significant portion of the tournament proceeds will be shared with the Florida Gulf Coast Lacrosse League to benefit the growth of the sport among youth athletes and assist those programs and athletes in need.

Members of the Florida Gulf Coast Lacrosse League include exceptional programs such as Sarasota Seahawks, South Tampa Sticks, Tampa Palms, Manatee Wildcats and Wolves Lacrosse, among others.

Building on the energy, excitement and research conducted by USA Lacrosse, and World Lacrosse, the small-sided formats will emphasize and promote fun, competition, learning and skills development using smaller fields, smaller roster sizes and fast-paced, high scoring games.

“Our goal is to help build and provide the Florida Gulf Coast Lacrosse League a best-in-class tournament framework for local lacrosse athletes that places them at the center of all lacrosse training activities,” said Tom Fitzsimons, President of Wesley Chapel Lacrosse. “Youth athletes have not received the full focus they deserve when it comes to programs and services, and we are excited to be a participant in this initiative that prioritizes youth athletes and their development.”

Registration is now open for teams to enter and for individual players that would like to be placed on a house team. There are multiple youth, high school and adult divisions.
