Welcome from the Yeatman Family
The Yeatman Family would like to welcome you to the Pacific Lacrosse Festival this year. Dennis has been closely involved in the sport for over 50 years. The Yeatman family has been playing and coaching in southern California, and across the US since 1996. Lacrosse is special to our family and we hope that you have as much fun playing this weekend as we do hosting the event for you.
We are big proponents of the Positive Coaching Alliance. We ask that coaches, players, parents, spectators and referees all promote the positive aspects of our terrific sport throughout the weekend. Shots will be missed, passes will be dropped and calls will go against your team…. let all that go and cheer the positive plays. You will have more fun; and so will the players.
We thank our sponsors for their tremendous support of our event each year. We ask that you patronize NIKE, Gatorade, STX, Dick’s Sporting Goods, Marriott and Sock Guy for your retail needs; They represent the best in their fields.
Finally, if we, or anyone of our scores of volunteer ambassadors, can help you in anyway throughout the weekend please ask. Our goal is to make this your best and most memorable lacrosse weekend of the year.
