Liberty National Elite, Director

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 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 16 teams in each division advancing to bracket play on Sunday. Liberty’s perfect combination of talent, competition and recruiters has already ensured a sellout 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!
Call today to inquire about the 2020 Waitlist and 2021 Tournament Spots.
- Pool Play Saturday followed by 16 teams in each division advancing to the Championship Bracket Sunday. This guarantees all teams 4+ games to a potential total of 7 games over the weekend.
