About the Tournament
The Great Plains Lacrosse Classic is open to all U13, U15, and high school teams nationwide, especially teams in upcoming areas such as the Midwest, South, and West Coast. The tournament will be Round Robin format and take place Saturday, June 23rd and Sunday, June 24th. In addition, we are featuring college coaches from NCAA D1, D2, and D3, and coaches representing MCLA D1 and D2 schools will be in attendance as well. Our goal is to give players an opportunity to interact with and get exposure from schools they might not otherwise get the chance to play in front of.
All Star Game
On Saturday evening, 44 high school players will be selected to play in the inaugural Great Plains 44 All-Star game under the lights and in front of the college coaches. The college coaches will help in casting votes for the top 44 players selected to play, so this is a great chance for players to get direct exposure.
Skills’ Clinic/Recruiting Seminar
As part of the tournament package, on Friday evening before the tournament weekend kick-offs, Hall of Famer Tom Marechek, All Pro coaches, and NCAA/MCLA coaches will be conducting an optional Skills’ Clinic for all positions that will give players a great opportunity to learn new skills and reinforce fundamentals. Also, this program includes a Recruiting Seminar to allow players the chance to hear from and ask questions to college coaches to gain insight on college lacrosse recruiting.
