LAKE PLACID, N.Y. (AP) — Summit Lacrosse Ventures is bringing another tournament to Lake Placid.

The inaugural High Peaks Summit Classic for adult men is slated for this weekend. It's an opportunity to play for athletes who haven't been able to compete in the traditional August tournament.

SLV also is hosting the Lake Placid Summit Youth Classic for boys in first through eighth grades, which runs Monday through Wednesday of next week, and the sixth annual BRINE Northstar Invitational. The latter is an invitation-only development and recruiting showcase for girls and will be held at Northwood School.

The weeklong Lake Placid Summit Classic, in its 28th year, gets an early start on July 31.

In all, the village expects about 20,000 visitors this summer for lacrosse, with a direct economic impact of around $7 million.
