Elite Experience

We pride ourselves on hosting elite events at elite venues and delivering the total lacrosse experience. In 2017, the Victory Event Series partnered with Duke’s Lacrosse Founder Ebe Helm and Dukes-Twist owner Greg Flego to deliver the inaugural Liberty National Elite Classic, a new national elite summer event to the top club teams in the country.

In 2019, the Liberty National Elite Classic featured 93 elite teams over two days, showcasing talent in front of 120 college coaches. One of the highlights is the format, which ensures ALL TEAMS enter bracket play on Sunday. This event was the perfect storm of talent, competition and recruiters which will ensure a sell out in 2020.

Our partnership is the perfect pairing of event experience and club leadership, which makes us poised to deliver the TOP tournament and recruiting experience of the summer. Coupled with the unbelievable DE TURF Complex, which features 12 brand new artificial turf fields, this is the can’t miss event of 2020.

This tournament will feature three grad years (2021 – 2023) with both AA and A divisions. We expect to grow upon 120 college coaches, ensuring the best recruiting opportunity for your athletes. This event is filling quickly and we look forward to hosting your team in June 2020!
