Six regions from across the state of Florida are coming together to offer a new and game changing event for the exploding number of serious lacrosse players emerging throughout the state.
The Sunshine State Lacrosse Championship pits six regional elite teams against each other in order to determine the top boys’ high school region in the state of Florida.
North Florida, Central Florida, West Florida, Southwest Florida, South Florida I and South Florida II are looking for the top players to represent their respective regions with the entire state and college recruiters watching. Regional tryouts will be held to form the six teams that will then compete in Orlando June 2-3, 2012.
Twenty-five players will be invited from the Sunshine State Lacrosse Championship to then represent Florida in two of the top premier recruiting tournaments in the country: The National Lacrosse Classic and The Brine Shootout.
The Sunshine State Lacrosse Championship aims to provide affordable, high level lacrosse and recruiting opportunities. The Sunshine State Lacrosse Championship has been produced with the cooperation of private enterprise, state government, and a statewide cooperative of regional groups who wish to promote Florida Lacrosse to the entire lacrosse playing world.
Each region is represented by current club administrators and coaches who know their regions well through their length of tenure and scope of activity in their respective areas. The coaches who will represent each region will be selected for their elite coaching experience, professionalism, and dedication to the growth and promotion of the game.
