ANNAPOLIS, Md. –  Legendary Sports Group (LSG) announced Tuesday the location for the second annual Fivestar Championship Challenge, to be hosted at the University of Delaware on July 11 -13, 2022 for the top 2024 boys lacrosse athletes in the country.

Two hundred of the nation’s most skilled lacrosse players will meet in Newark, DE, and be drafted onto teams to compete for the Fivestar title. The event’s co-directors, Dave Pietramala, Assistant Coach at Syracuse University and Ben DeLuca, Head Coach at University of Delaware, will join a power coaching staff comprised of other collegiate coaches, former and current professional players and coaches, and targeted skills experts to guide athletes through three days of game competition, skills training and mental toughness.

“We are thrilled to have Ben DeLuca and the University of Delaware on board for the Fivestar Championship Challenge this year,” said Dave Cottle, LSG President. “Hosting the event at Delaware’s tremendous facility and playing the championship game in Delaware’s stadium, live streamed on LSN, will be a lot of fun.”

The Fivestar Championship Challenge is a follow-up event to Fivestar Elite Lacrosse, hosted in December 2021 at IMG Academy for the same age group of athletes. The Fivestar Championship Challenge presents a new format for athletes to compete in a team environment, coached by an elite staff of college and pro lacrosse names, with the championship game presented live on LaxSportsNet.

“The first Fivestar field I set foot on was at the inaugural Fivestar Elite Lacrosse in December 2020, where I was blown away by the level of talent. I look forward to returning this summer to see what the 2024 class has to offer,” said Dave Pietramala. “As college coaches, we are looking forward to the opportunity to coach these athletes up in preparation for the next level of play.”
