Hi players, coaches, parents and lacrosse enthusiasts,

Thank you for checking out our website and details about our first annual Saratoga Springs Lacrosse Shootout. I have been involved with the game of lacrosse for over 25 years, including traveling to countless tournaments as a player, coach and administrator. In my experiences there have been some amazing times, wonderful memories and lifelong friends made both on and off the field. To me that is what this great game is all about!

My vision for the Saratoga Springs Lacrosse Shootout is to create more than just another tournament for teams to arrive, compete and leave. The goal is establishing more of a lacrosse festival with an atmosphere second to none; a place where teams, players and their families can come and enjoy the perfect combination of fun and competition in a beautiful, historic setting. In addition to top-notch lacrosse competition, players will have the opportunity to learn from some of the best players in the game through our pro-player demonstrations throughout the weekend. College coaches will also be onsite directing player and coaching clinics and sharing their insight with those eager to learn.

While the on-field action will feature some of the best talent from the East Coast and beyond, the opportunity off the field will be just as exciting. We’ve planned plenty of fun off-field activities for the whole family including a charity golf tournament, 3 v 3 mini lacrosse tournament, Powell Hour, a players club, a parents-only lounge, Rip’s Grill, vendor village, live music and more!

I sincerely look forward to you and your families joining me as we kick off an annual Rhino Lacrosse tradition.

Charge On!

Ryan Powell
