The Pacific Lacrosse Festival is the only lacrosse tournament scheduled for the summer of 2023 in San Diego county. We are proud to partner with the World Lacrosse Games to make the last week of June ’23 the most exciting week of lacrosse in the history of San Diego. We want you to come to San Diego and have a terrific time on the lacrosse field, but see why we call San Diego “America’s Finest City.”

In addition to a terrific lacrosse experience, San Diego offers an exceptional array of fun things to do as a family. Consider going to the world famous San Diego Zoo, the Wild Animal Park near the lacrosse venues, Sea World, and our world class beaches of Del Mar, Torrey Pines and Mission Beach.  Old Town, Coronado, the Gas Lamp District or take in a Padres game at lovely PetCo Park while here.

If you have questions about where to go, what to say or how to get tickets, please feel free to reach out to our concierge service. We will be happy to show you how to have a good time in our fabulous city.

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.

Bang the wall, 

The Yeatmans
