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 2021!

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 2021.

This tournament will feature three grad years (2022 – 2024) 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 in June 2021!

Directions for Players to Access their FREE SportsRecruits Profile

Victory is teaming up with SportsRecruits to generate roster books for college coaches at our event. This will provide each high school player with a free SportsRecruits profile and put student-athletes in control of what information is in the coaches books (especially detailed academic and athletic information)! They will also be able to keep their info up to date in the college coaches’ digital roster leading up to, during, and after the event.

After parents submit the liability waiver (see directions above), high school players will receive an email from SportsRecruits. Players will then be able to access and update their free SportsRecruits profile, which will be shared with college coaches before, during, and after the Victory tournament! In addition, players can utilize the school search to research every college program in the country, build and organize a list of favorite schools, and effortlessly email any coach in the country!

College coaches will be in front of their computer a lot in the coming weeks! Club coaches should invite their players ASAP to provide players with access to Victory’s liability waiver, a spot in the college coaches’ roster booklet, and their free online recruiting profile from SportsRecruits!
