US Club Lacrosse is excited to announce that it will be powering the Legends Freakshow & Western Invitational this July in beautiful Salt Lake City, Utah. This showcase and tournament will be the premier events of the West this coming summer. The best clubs from the US and Canada will be coming to Utah to showcase their talents. US Club Lacrosse is thrilled to be joining Legends Lacrosse in these two unparalleled events. Salt Lake City will be a huge influx of college recruiters between July 7-9th, not wanting to miss any of this high level lacrosse action.
The Western Freakshow will take place on Tuesday, July 7th, and will be an elite showcase with over forty NCAA recruiters. This showcase will be for 2021s through 2024s and will be an opportunity that top athletes of the West will not want to miss. “The Western Freakshow will provide for about 45 college coaches to work directly with the players. Players will participate in skill and positional work, collegiate style practice settings, full field scrimmages, a recruitment seminar, and more, all directed by the NCAA coaches themselves,” explains Reid Doucette of Legends Lacrosse. Players participating in the “Freakshow” will also receive custom gear packs and all of the benefits that come with a US Club Lacrosse powered event, including player interviews, highlights from the action on US Club Lacrosse social media, and an Interactive Vendor Village.
The following two days, July 8th and 9th will be the Legends Western Invitational. This top class tournament will feature incredible teams from around the country competing to prove who is the best of the West. “The Freakshow showcase will transition us nicely into the Western Invitational where we will see teams from 10+ states and a couple of Canadian provinces compete at a high level in front of a diverse group of 40+ recruiters. With divisions ranging from 2021-2027, we’ll be seeing 80+ boys teams represent their regions and showcase their talent over 16 fields in the heart of Salt Lake City,” adds Doucette. This tournament will be a great opportunity for teams to move up the US Club Lacrosse rankings. US Club Lacrosse will also be tracking game outcomes, highlighting key match-ups and players to watch, posting video recaps, and holding post-game interviews with players and coaches.
