About The National Lacrosse Classic

 The National Lacrosse Classic brings together 2,000 elite athletes from across the country for one action-packed tournament. The NLC offers extreme competition and maximum exposure to more than 200+ college coaches. 





We Teamed Up With The Headstrong Foundation!


We are extremely excited to help the HEADstrong Foundation spread their philanthropic message to so many young lacrosse players at this year’s event. We believe in the power of athletics to strengthen communities, and the HEADstrong foundation has made an immeasurable impact on the lacrosse community through their support of more than 16,000 cancer patients and their families over the past 12 years.

The HEADstrong Foundation will be on hand at the 2019 National Lacrosse Classic to interact with attendees and share their mission of improving quality of life for cancer patients nationwide. Interested in supporting their cause at the NLC? The HEADstrong Foundation will be accepting gift card donations, which will be integrated into HEADstrong comfort kits and service activations for families. Recommended gift cards include $20 for Visa, Uber, Target, or CVS. Gifts can be delivered directly to HEADstrong’s awareness tent on site at DE Turf on Monday, July 15th.

"I think that its been really great for my son to play with different players and learning how they play. Especially since we came all the way from Colorado, it’s interesting to play east coast teams and learning from them and developing his skills."

"We were able to attend one of the information sessions and it’s great to hear college experience pointers and tips from someone who is actually in the field and in college. My daughter gets a lot of valuable insight from someone in that position."
