Not long after Victory Event Series released its summer 2020 schedule, tournaments quickly began to reach capacity. “We are currently sold out at Liberty National Elite Classic and have a very small number of open spots at Summer Rise, Boys Summer Slam, and Girls Summer Slam depending on the division. It’s been very exciting to watch these tournaments continue to grow,” said Victory’s Bob Dignazio.
Another exciting development is the launching of Philly Summer Kickoff Elite Showcase, Victory’s new elite girls recruiting showcase held at The Proving Grounds on the day before Summer Rise. “This has attracted top Division I, II, and III coaches to both the showcase and tournament, which will enhance the recruiting exposure that our teams and players will receive that weekend.”
Victory has also launched the Southeast Elite 150 Showcase, a new elite boys recruiting showcase the day before Southeast Shootout tournament. “We had a lot of demand from college coaches wanting to come to Nashville and recruit this burgeoning region. Adding the showcase gives top players the opportunity to be coached by NCAA coaches as well as gain recruiting exposure from programs at the Division I, II, and III levels. Southeast Shootout continues to grow as a tournament, and a lot of people are pumped for this weekend of lacrosse.”
A few other changes headline the Victory schedule, especially in the South. For the first time, Girls Texas Draw will move to May 30-31 as a standalone tournament, the boys event staying on the first weekend of June. “This makes a lot of sense for a variety of reasons,” said Victory Event Manager Lindsay Bryne. “Our girls clubs in the South were asking for a tournament in late May, and we’re delivering.” The Big Easy Classic (May 30-31), Boys Texas Draw (June 6-7), and Southeast Shootout (June 13-14) will also be on separate weekends. “This gives a lot of southern clubs the opportunity to compete in multiple Victory tournaments and receive an elite experience, from exciting destinations to first-class venues, customized level of play, and elite recruiting exposure,” said Victory President Jeff Long.
