West Chester, PA – Victory Event Series has become one of the nation’s leaders in developing elite lacrosse tournaments and showcases. VES will continue to expand its portfolio this fall, as Director of Operations Bob Dignazio announced the fall lineup.
“Victory’s priorities are providing elite lacrosse players with innovative and customized recruiting exposure opportunities, bringing together some of the top club teams throughout the country for high-level competition, and continuing to provide exceptional lacrosse experiences for players and their families.”
The Victory Fall Classic & Showcase will continue to expand this fall, as the brand-new Girls Showcase Camp has been added to the schedule. Following the Girls Fall Classic at DE Turf (Saturday, October 26), Victory will bring in coaches from the region’s top NCAA programs to recruit, instruct, and coach elite high school players at Tatnall School in Wilmington, Delaware. “Adding a girls showcase to this weekend was a no-brainer. With some of the top high school and college programs in the country situated between Philly and DC, we’ll provide a high-level competition, instruction, and exposure experience for players and their families.” VES Event Manager Lindsay (Burkhart) Byrne, a former standout at Ridley HS (PA), Division I player at Ohio State, and current coach at nationally-ranked Notre Dame HS (PA) will direct the event. “We have already secured commitments from Division I, II, and III coaches from top colleges and universities, and it’s not even Memorial Day,” said Byrne.
Another elite addition to Victory’s fall schedule is the Liberty National Elite Fall Classic & Showcase. This event is an extension of the red-hot Liberty National summer event, which sold out in January at 96 teams. “As Liberty National has continued to grow, it’s clear that there’s a demand for a Liberty fall event. We’ve heard our clubs and are delivering,” said Dignazio. Liberty National Elite Fall will be held during the first weekend of the Division I November recruiting calendar on the turf fields at The Proving Grounds in Conshohocken, Pennsylvania (immediately outside Philadelphia). Teams can register for one day or two days. “With many players being dual-sport athletes, it’s important for us to provide teams the flexibility they need to make this a first-class experience,” said Dignazio. If a full team can not compete on Saturday due to fall sports, players from that team may still register for a Saturday individual showcase led by top NCAA coaches before playing with their club on Sunday. Liberty National College Recruiting Coordinator Ted Garber will secure another elite staff of college coaches to lead the showcase and recruit.
With just weeks before Victory’s National Prep Championship, which brings together the top high school programs in the country for a bracket-style tournament at Hill School and Widener University, Victory announced yet another commitment to its events in burgeoning lacrosse markets. “For the first time, all of our events which have high school divisions will be filmed and accessible to our players for recruiting video. From Liberty National to Summer Slam to Southeast Shootout (Nashville) and Cowboy Cup (Plano), our players can capitalize on this film for exposure opportunities to college coaches.” Victory is partnering with NextPro to provide players and families this amazing opportunity.
