With the start of summer officially around the corner, lacrosse tournaments around the state of Maryland are heating up. Different parts around the United States are well-known for certain sports, and in the Mid-Atlantic area lacrosse is certainly the sport to watch. In early June, major lacrosse tournaments took place where young players could develop their skills and display their skills in front of college coaches.
One of the tournaments that were held earlier this month was the Salisbury Summer Face-off. It featured different age groups for both boys and girls. James Simmons who is the Assistant Tourism Manager for Wicomico County Recreation, Parks & Tourism mentioned, “The great thing about this event is the venue. The games will take place at Salisbury University – who just won the DIII Men’s Lacrosse National Championship, their 11th Lacrosse National Championship within the last 25 years. It is a phenomenal experience for these teams to get to play on the same facilities that such a storied program plays on as well. That has been a great draw for the event. Everyone knows about Salisbury Lacrosse and it is paying dividends for the event. They know that they could be the next one spotted by the legendary Coach Berkman.”
