JOSC & OYLA to host Inaugural Quick Stick Lacrosse Invitational
The JOSC is pleased to announce a partnership with the Onslow Youth Lacrosse Association to host the Inaugural Quick Stick Invitational on Saturday, February 20, 2016 at the OCSA Complex located at 2221 Belgrade-Swansboro Rd., Maysville, NC. This partnership closely mimics the partnership the JOSC has with area high school football teams to play in the Marine Federal Credit Union Football Jamboree. The event itself will mimic the successful Battle at the Beach soccer tournaments that Doug Kidd, NSCAA Women’s Coach of the Year, of Swansboro High School and Dave Miller from Jacksonville High School put on bi-annually.
Both organizations are also pleased to have Onslow Classic Soccer Association hosting the event at their facility. “Partnerships like the one created for this event will be what advances sport in Onslow County,” states JOSC Executive Director, Ashleigh Bachert. As of January 20th, the 8 team girls bracket was complete, while there were additional spots on the boys bracket for teams to fill. Out of the 17 teams committed, only 4 are from Onslow County.
Games will be held on Saturday, February 20th starting at 8 AM at the OCSA Complex. Tickets are $5 per person and allow access to all scrimmages for the day. There will be vendors on site with merchandise, the opportunity to enter the raffle to win great lacrosse prizes from Swax Lax, BAMShaft Lacrosse, R.I.S.E. Train Ball, Battle Lax and others, a youth clinic and a fastest shot competition. Be sure to Like the Jacksonville-Onslow Sports Commission on Facebook to stay up to date on the event.
