Take the Trident! 

Powerful and dangerous aren't just words to describe a trident - they describe our girls on the field during this elite weekend event at West Chester University. Competing for a chance to take home the trident trophy, teams have the chance to also earn major points toward the US Lacrosse Nationals!

We think about the details so you don't have to.

Family Friendly Scheduling:  We schedule your games in a morning or afternoon block. Half of the day on the field, the other experiencing beautiful, downtown West Chester & surrounding areas.
