About the Patriot Games
The Patriot Games Lacrosse Showcase is a popular boys' lacrosse tournament held every July at venues in the heart of beautiful and historic Bucks County, Pennsylvania -- a convenient forum at the crossroads of major lacrosse hotbeds, including Maryland, New England, New Jersey, New York and Pennsylvania.
The event attracts the top club teams looking to test themselves against a diverse field of elite programs from other regions and to punctuate their summer travel season with a grand finale. The event features teams from traditional hotbeds on the East Coast as well as talented contingents from Canada and emerging regions of the country, including California, Colorado, Florida, Illinois, Indiana, Michigan, Ohio, Tennessee, Texas, Wisconsin and Washington. Past events have also included "Bridge" programs from Baltimore and Philadelphia.
Our 2013 brackets and divisions are organized as follows: (because more teams seem to be organizing themselves by graduation year, we expect to use class nomenclature in making final bracket determinations)
- Youth Brackets (AA, A & B Divisions): U-9, U-11, U-13 and U15
- High School Brackets (A & B Divisions): JV/Rising Stars (Rising Freshmen/Class of 2017; Rising Sophomores/Class of 2016) and Varsity/Elite (Rising Seniors/Class of 2014 or younger)
Teams in each age group will be recognized for sportsmanship based largely on sportsmanship scorecards kept by certified officials and site marshals after each game, taking into account the spirit of the game and conduct on both sides of the field, including spectators.
Team tents will abound, and you can count on a weekend of competitive lacrosse and camaraderie in a highly festive atmosphere that will feature food, refreshments, Vendor Village and the Warrior Fun Zone. Side trip opportunities are many; New Hope, Doylestown and Washington Crossing State Park are all within a short drive from our venues.
Based on testimonials and expressions of interest, we expect the Tournament will fill up quickly. Last year we were constrained to close registration for the Tournament in April. Please take a few minutes and register now to reserve your place in the event!
We will hope to see you "Cradlin' in the Cradle of Liberty" as participants in the 2013 Patriot Games. In the meantime, thank you for your consideration and have a wonderful season.
