ANNAPOLIS, MD – Legendary Sports Group announced today a new summer lacrosse event, OC Lax Fest, a family-friendly beach and lacrosse festival in Ocean City, Maryland to be held Monday, August 9th through Wednesday, August 11th, 2021. The event is eligible for both boys (classes 2022 – 2028) and girls (classes 2022 – 2030) athletes from around the state of Maryland and beyond.
Legendary Sports Group (LSG) has partnered with Robinson Sports to put on the summer’s must-attend event for boys and girls youth lacrosse players. The OC Lax Fest will coincide with long-standing men’s lacrosse event, the Ocean City Lax Classic, to immediately follow on Thursday, August 12th – Sunday, August 15th.
“Robinson Sports is really excited to partner with LSG in launching the OC Lax Fest. The opportunity to bring the men’s and women’s games together for a week of lacrosse, the beach, and surf is a great change from the normal recruiting grind of the summer,” said Chris Robinson, President of Robinson Sports. “Having all age groups from the youth all the way up to the adults in a resort atmosphere really brings together the male and female lacrosse communities in a celebratory way.”
LSG Senior Lacrosse Advisor and Hall of Fame Coach Dave Cottle will serve as the OC Lax Fest Event Director, bringing extensive relationships in the lacrosse industry and ensuring the OC Lax Fest competition will not disappoint. “The Ocean City Lax Classic is entering its 29th year and we could not be more excited to launch an event for youth athletes alongside this staple summer lacrosse event. We are grateful for the support of the City of Ocean City and our partners to bring a one-of-a-kind family-friendly lacrosse experience to the shore this summer,” said Cottle.
“The 2021 Ocean City Lax Classic is pleased to partner with Legendary Sports Group in this new venture. The 29th Annual Ocean City Lax Classic will have Legendary Sports Group as the front end of the week-long lacrosse event. LSG will partner with the Ocean City Lax Classic to run the OC Lax Classic Men’s Elite (A) division. We feel that their expertise in major tournament events will enhance our Men’s Elite “A” Division,” said Robert Musitano, Event Director for the Ocean City Lax Classic. An exciting addition to the Ocean City Lax Classic, the winners of the Men’s Elite “A” Division will receive a $10,000 cash prize!
The OC Lax Fest will be a destination event for the whole family. Through partnership with Ocean City restaurants, hospitality and recreation providers, attendees of the OC Lax Fest and their families will have access to exclusive discounts and experiences around Ocean City!
