Sticks for Soldiers Lacrosse Classic

Fairfield Connecticut

Sticks For Soldiers is a charity lacrosse tournament held in Fairfield, CT to raise money for wounded troops.

Varsity teams from Tri- State area high schools will participate in a 7-on-7 tournament game format. Team entry fees, raffles and other fundraising events will be donated to this year's cause.

This year, we plan to have 64 teams entered in the tournament. The tournament will start at 9:00 am, and each team should play at least 4 games, concluding the day by approximately 3:30 pm.
