The Orange Bowl Returns as Presenting Sponsor for Fifth Straight Year for the Sunshine State Games Lacrosse Tournament

 

The ninth annual Sunshine State Games Boys and Girls Lacrosse Tournament presented by the Orange Bowl will be held May 19 – 20, 2018. This is the fifth consecutive year the Orange Bowl will serve as the presenting sponsor of the event.

The annual event, which is one of the largest youth lacrosse events in the region, features  approximately 125 teams of athletes from ages nine to 18 who will participate in the three-day tournament.

The games will be played at Pine Trails Park (10555 Trails End, Parkland, Fl, 33076) from 8 a.m. – 10 p.m., on Saturday, May 19; and 8 a.m. – 4 p.m., on Sunday, May 20.

The Sunshine State Games Boys and Girls Lacrosse Tournament presented by the Orange Bowl builds on the Orange Bowl Committee’s tradition of supporting youth and collegiate sports in South Florida. The Orange Bowl directly supports locally-based festivals and events that provide benefits and participatory opportunities to youth from all over the world, such as the Orange Bowl International Tennis Championship, Orange Bowl International Youth Regatta, Doral-Publix Junior Golf Classic presented by Orange Bowl, Orange Bowl Swim Classic, Orange Bowl Paddle Championships, Orange Bowl Florida Youth Track and Field Invitational and Junior Orange Bowl. Over the years, the Orange Bowl has been able to invest millions of dollars in the South Florida community through its four pillars of community outreach: youth sports, fundraising and community events, academic programs and scholarships, and legacy gifts.

In 1980, the State of Florida created the Sunshine State Games to provide Florida’s citizens an Olympic-style sports festival they can call their own, and since its inception more than 200,000 athletes have participated.  The Sunshine State Games, now in its fourth decade of competition, is the nation’s oldest State Games and is Florida’s largest and longest standing multi-sport festival. The Sunshine State Games are conducted under the auspices of the Florida Sports Foundation, a direct-support organization of the State of Florida. More than 30 different sports are offered from April through July each year.

Additional sponsors for this year’s Sunshine State Games Lacrosse Tournament presented by the Orange Bowl include: AutoNation, Chipotle Mexican Grill, Florida Prepaid College Plans, Gladiator Lacrosse, Miami Orthopedics & Sports Medicine Institute and Wizard Creations.
