“It is amazing to see the level of play at the high school ranks these days,” said John Gagliardi, President and founder of Maverik Lacrosse. “I am always looking for the next Rabil or Bitter to come along and catch my eye. The feedback we have received from the coaches and players over the years has been extremely positive. It is our goal to bring together the best high school players in the country one week out of the year and give them the stage to showcase their talent. Ultimately, the cream rises to the top and with our help will land one of the coveted scholarships at an elite college level program.”
