The Fresno Lacrosse Festival intends on being a pre-season tournament for men's club teams to prepare for their upcoming season. We also intend to introduce the sport of lacrosse in the Fresno area, where no organized youth or high school programs exist.
Event will be round-robin format follwed by a championship and 3rd place game. This will give 4 games guaranteed for each team. Round robin games will be 25 minute running halves and championship game will be 15 minute running quarters.
Free youth clinics will also be provided on an adjacent field. Information and times below.
Please contact club president Todd Johnson if your club team is interested in participating or if you would like any additional information: firstname.lastname@example.org or (559) 388-4428.

1. Palo Alto Lacrosse Club (defending champions) - Confirmed
2. Central California Lacrosse Club - Confirmed

Fees for visiting teams are $100 per team. We want to keep the festival inexpensive to get as many teams to Fresno as we can.
