Ladies, Gentleman, and greater Texas lacrosse public, we are in the final month of the 2017 season! That means that summer and the Texas All-Star Round Up are also upon us! This year, the 3rd Annual Texas All-Star Round Up, the only true statewide All-Star game, will be held May 20th, 2017.
Now, in Year 3, we look to build upon the new tradition after two, great, initial runs! This year, we take the game on campus, to one of the more intimate collegiate locations in the State, the SMU Crum Lacrosse Field. This venue is unbelievable, and we are thrilled. We brought the tradition back; now, we are just going to keep it rolling. In 2016, we played two matches, a senior game and a rising senior game. Our Year 2 Statistics were absurd and may be found below!

Thank you for your cooperation as we do our best to ensure each player's safety! Email Helen Crimmins at firstname.lastname@example.org should you need any of the aforementioned forms.

Please understand, however, that you are not entitled to attend, and, based on our track record of getting quality players to the field, we've been pretty appropriate!
