Date Correction: ESPN RISE Warrior 40

In April, ESPN RISE announced the second annual Warrior 40 will expand to include four cities across the country to search for the best rising high school lacrosse athletes nationwide, culminating in the Warrior 40 Final Competition, a three-day event held at Harvard University in Cambridge, Mass., on June 7-9, 2011. Please note that the date is set for July 7-9 now.

Four regional camps will take place in the regions of: Denver; Long Island, N.Y.; Baltimore and Boston. At the Warrior 40 regional camps, athletes will receive advanced, one-on-one instruction and compete against the nation’s best, ultimately narrowing down the entire lacrosse national playing field to only 40 elite high school players, named the 2011 Warrior 40.

The final Warrior 40 athletes will then attend the Final Competition in July at Harvard University, a three-day event comprised of improving lacrosse players’ knowledge on and off the field.

Players must be recommended and pre-registered in order to attend, but the events are open to media and public spectators.

Lacrosse Playground

In 2009, Adam O’Neill, Harry Alford and Thomas Alford launched Lacrosse Playground as the preeminent site for lacrosse gearheads. For years Lacrosse Playground provided lacrosse fans with tutorials and tips on how to string a lacrosse head, up-close looks at the gear the top players used and sneak peeks at equipment and uniforms before they were released. More than 10 years and millions of visits later, Lacrosse Playground has relaunched with a focus on storytelling. Our mission is to provide comprehensive coverage of the latest lacrosse news, share insights into the sports betting and fantasy lacrosse world and showcase the lifestyles and personalities of the sport of lacrosse through articles, videos and podcasts.
