Lacrosse for a Cause: Camo Classic Coming to Placer

Jan 08, 2016
Benefits Wounded Warrior Project

Swashbuckler Lacrosse and Placer Valley Tourism are ringing in 2016 with the Camo Classic, an incredible two-day lacrosse tournament that benefits the Wounded Warrior Project.  This exciting event will take place on January 30-31 at Foskett Park in Lincoln and will feature both boys and girls junior high and high school teams.

There are nearly 40 teams expected to attend which equates to 700 players total coming from as far north as Portland, Oregon to as far south as San Diego and everywhere in between. All teams will play five games with a 50 minute running clock.  They will also have a parent lounge hosted by a local brewery for spectators over 21-years-old to enjoy. 

President of Swashbuckler Lacrosse Kevin Van Patten explained that all of their tournaments have a charitable element to them as they are committed to promoting awareness and fundraising for those in need. "The Wounded Warrior Project will have veterans on-site at the Camo Classic and we will have special side events and contests that will help raise money for their cause," added Van Patten. 

If you want to see some great lacrosse games and support a wonderful cause, the Camo Classic is the tournament for you!  Come on down to 1911 Finney Way in Lincoln for all the action.
