Shootout For Soldiers Set For Saturday

The Utah lacrosse team is proud to host the first Shootout For Soldiers to be held in Utah. Join us this Saturday, August 5 at the McCarthey Track & Field complex for food, fun and lacrosse! The festivities will begin at 7am and go until 7pm.

Shootout for Soldiers was started in 2012 by Tyler Steinhardt as a way to bring awareness and help those veterans that have served our country. Many left the service with both physical and invisible wounds. Over 80 cities submitted a bid this year to host Shootout for Soldiers but only four were selected. Canidigua, NY, Hudson Valley, NY; Philadelphia, PA; and Salt Lake City, Utah. These cities join the existing Shootout locations of Long Island, NY; Boston, MA; Baltimore, MD; Atlanta, GA; Houston, TX; Columbus, OH; Denver, CO; and San Diego, CA. Shootout for Soldiers is open to both male and female players of all ages from the masters level all the way down to brand new lacrosse players at the elementary school level.

This is not a tournament so it’s non-competitive, each team will either be stars or stripes and the score will be cumulative with an overall winner declared at the end of the 12 hours.

Utah lacrosse alumni are invited to come play with members of the current team at 1pm against BYU. Arrive at 12:30pm.

So far, the event has raised over $8,000 which will be donated to veterans. Follow the action on Twitter: @SFSLacrosse and @SFSUtah_
