4 Apr, 2017
The NCAA and Corrigan Sports will host a pair of youth tournaments during the 2017 NCAA Division I Women’s and Men’s Lacrosse Championships (May 26-29) in Foxboro, Massachusetts.
“We are excited to work with Corrigan Sports in the second year of this initiative introducing youth to NCAA championships,” said Jeff Jarnecke, NCAA director of championships and alliances. “We’re eager to explore
possibilities and opportunities that come with hosting youth events in conjunction with both the women’s and men’s lacrosse championships and look forward to creating lifelong memories for the participants.”
The NCAA Girls Future Champions Tournament will be played May 27-28 at the William A. Rice Complex in Wrentham, Massachusetts, which is less than 10 minutes from Gillette Stadium, site of the 2017 NCAA Division I Women’s and Men’s Lacrosse Championships. Each registered girls team will receive 20 tickets, with parking included, to the NCAA Division I Women’s Lacrosse Championship, and participating players will have
the opportunity to appear on the field at Gillette Stadium during the championship. Teams will play at least three games, and the tournament is open to age groups 2021-2024.
The NCAA Boys Future Champions Tournament will be played May 28-29 at the Payson Road Recreation Complex in Foxboro. Each registered boys team will receive 20 tickets, with parking included, to the NCAA Division I men’s lacrosse semifinals and final and have the opportunity to be recognized on the field at Gillette Stadium during championship weekend. Boys teams in age groups 2021-2025 will play at least three games.
“We are thrilled to partner with the NCAA to develop the Future Champions Tournaments,” said Corrigan Sports Enterprises President Lee Corrigan. “These new youth events make the biggest weekend in lacrosse even more special. In the coming years , we plan to bring these events to the same markets where NCAA championships take place. This will provide young lacrosse players with an exclusive opportunity to be part of the championship experience as they see their college heroes in action.”
