USA Imports vs Victorian All-Stars

The 4th of July is the famously patriotic American Independence Day on which the United States of America collectively celebrates the adoption of the final version of American Declaration of Independence annoucning the American break from the rule of the colonial forces of Great Britain.

One of the founding fathers of the American nation, President John Adams said at the time that the Independence "ought to be solemnized with pomp and parade, with shows, games, sports, guns, bells, bonfires, and illuminations, from one end of this continent to the other, from this time forward forever more". Well, this year 236 years since independence, in a land far, far away - a game of lacrosse, the original American sport, will take place in the Eastern Suburbs of Melbourne to help visiting American players who are playing on club teams around Melbourne celebrate their national day.

The visiting American's who hail from NCAA Teams from the University of Massachusetts, Canisius University, Stony Brook Universty, The University of Notre Dame, Syracuse University, St Michaels University and others as well as a handful of Canadians and Japanese nationals will take on a team of Victorians who have their eyes on making the Victorian team for the 2012 National Championships and the Australian team for the 2014 World Games to be held in Denver, Colorado.

Surrey Park Lacrosse Club is proudly hosting the event with support by Bendigo Bank and Breadstreet Bakery. Admission is free and there will be American Style Hot Dogs and beverages on sale all night.

This is a rare and special event which we hope all Victorian lacrosse fans will get behind.
