Elite Experience

We pride ourselves on hosting elite events at elite venues and delivering the total lacrosse experience. In 2017, the Victory Event Series delivered the inaugural Liberty National Elite Classic, a new national elite summer event to the top club teams in the country.

In 2020, the Liberty National Elite Classic featured 93 elite teams over two days, showcasing talent in front of 100+ college coaches onsite and online via Event Beacon. One of the highlights of the tournament is the format, which ensures teams in each division advancing to bracket play on Sunday. In 2020, top clubs such as West Coast Starz, Team Minnesota, Big 4 HHH, and Duke’s Elite highlighted a star-studded list of teams that will only continue to ascend in 2023!

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 2023.

This tournament will feature three grad years (2024 – 2026) with both AA and A divisions. Victory will host 120 college coaches at Liberty National Elite Classic, ensuring the best recruiting opportunity for your athletes. This event is filling quickly and we look forward to hosting your team next summer!
