The 2013 Best of the West Lacrosse Classic was comprised of close to 100 teams from; California, Idaho, New Jersey, Illinois, Utah, Canada, and Nevada. The UNLV lacrosse club took back the reigns of this event, hosting our neighbors to what was considered by most, “one of the best run tournaments …ever”. We hope that all who attended will be coming back to experience our “Vegas Style” hospitality and that the good word on this event will boost attendance to at least 100 teams for the 2013 event. We have a stellar venue that is a world class tournament facility provided to us by The City of Las Vegas. We are proud to be hosting our tournament at the Charlie Kellogg Joe Zaher Sports Complex. This new facility has 11 fields, a large practice area and ample room for teams to stretch out. It is located in the Northwest quadrant of the valley and adjacent to the Summerlin Parkway for convenient access.
The time setting for this year’s tournament is March 1st, 2nd and 3rd.
The Kellogg Zaher facility is located at 891 N. Buffalo just on the corner of Washington and Buffalo, immediately adjacent to the Summerlin Parkway which is serviced by US 95. This facility is truly a jewel in the southwest and with 11 fields, all in top notch condition, this tournament should rise to the top regional Lacrosse Tournament in the western United States.
The cost for the 2013 Best of the West Lacrosse Classic is $60.00 per player or $1,500.00 per team, which ever you prefer. Please fill out the attached Team Registration Form and mail in with a $100.00 team deposit. Please mail forms to 1750 N.Buffalo Drive #104 150. 89128. Attn Gary Campo.

All teams entering the tournament will be weighed and seated into brackets based upon their projected strength. We will crown a champion in five divisions: Men’s High School Varsity, Men’s High School Junior Varsity, Boy’s Middle School Varsity, Boy’s Middle School Junior Varsity and Women’s High School Varsity.
