Usually held at the end of summer, this game features past Champion Select players who now play for NCAA programs playing against the Champion Lacrosse coaching staff.


Overall, as a Champion Lacrosse mom, I watched my son grow substantially more confident in his play.

Joe Smith and Frank Resetarits earned the respect of all the players. They were extremely professional, kind and stressed sportsmanship. Many of the players had never played together, but they quickly melded as a team, thanks to the coaches.

The tournaments were great. Champion Lacrosse afforded us the opportunity us to visit places we otherwise would not have seen. In fact, my son said that one of the best times of his life occurred during the Harvard tournament – when the team watched an MLL practice and then spent time with several members of the Boston Cannons.

The greatest advantage of the Champion Lacrosse experience was the college recruiting. Scouts from colleges and universities throughout the United States attended each tournament. These coaches were carefully watching the players and were impressed with what they saw.

I would highly recommend Champions Lacrosse. It was well worth it for both my son and myself!

I am very thankful that Joe allowed my son, Tyler, to participate in Champion Impact. It was an extremely positive and rewarding experience for him. I am amazed by how much he learned in a little over a month. The coaching staff was outstanding and Tyler thoroughly enjoyed the team.

I just wanted to say thank you, Joe, for the opportunity he gave my son, Michael Damico, to play for Champion Lacrosse. Michael has participated in other sports programs and Joe’s program was by far run more professionally and unbiased than any other. The individual time the coaches took with each player, seizing every opportunity for improvement, was excellent. We are now in Michael’s second year of playing lacrosse and I strongly believe he has developed more in the last few weeks than in the previous two years.

– Michael Damico
