OCEAN CITY- Next weekend will be a big one for the local Beach Lacrosse Club as it will send several teams to Baltimore to compete in the 10th Annual Lax Splash tournament while hosting its annual Beach Lax Fest in Ocean City.
Lax Splash, played at several different venues in the lacrosse tradition-rich Baltimore area features hundreds of teams and thousands of players from all over the mid-Atlantic region in what has become the traditional kick-off to the summer youth lacrosse tournament season each year. The annual event celebrates its 10th anniversary this year and promises to be bigger and better than ever.
The Beach Lacrosse Club will be well represented at Lax Splash this year with three boys teams and three girls teams competing. Typically, Lax Splash is held the week before the annual Beach Lax Fest in Ocean City, but the stars lined up just right this year for both events to be held on the same weekend.
Beach Lax Fest is a girls-only tournament with a little shy of 100 teams from around the area expected to descend on the resort next weekend, June 5-7. The following weekend, Beach Lacrosse will host a boys tournament with over 100 teams from the area expected to participate in the event at venues in and around Berlin.
