Summit Lacrosse Ventures is a leader in nationwide lacrosse events and programs for boys, girls, men and women, with a clear focus on the responsible and sustainable growth of the game. We deliver exceptional value and first-class experiences for our customers, with an emphasis on the development of life skills, alongside athletic skills. Over 30 years, we have mobilized a loyal and collaborative community with which to share our passion for lacrosse.
In 2015, Summit Lacrosse Ventures LLC (SLV) combined two leading lacrosse event management and marketing companies, Lake Placid Lacrosse (Established 1991) and WomensLax.com LLC (Established 2008), into a single entity which has built upon existing events and programs, and pursued new development opportunities. Industry professionals with 30+ years of experience across all levels of the sport, we are passionate about delivering first-class events in desirable locations, creating valuable experiences for our participants, and building a lifelong community of passionate individuals who share our ideals of competition, respect, and camaraderie. SLV operates 12+ events nationwide.
2020 marks the 6th year of Summit Lacrosse Ventures™ and the 31st year of Lake Placid Lacrosse™. Our rich history in lacrosse event operation organically formed through the strong sense of competition, camaraderie and respect at our events. A single event in 1990 has evolved to 13 events nationwide in 2020. Our community is larger and more loyal than ever. Our platform is perfectly positioned to naturally present your brand or business to an interested and eager audience.
One of our core internal targets in 2020 is to achieve as many "win/wins" as we can. This mantra truly applies very well to the sponsorship segment. We are specifically interested in associating with brands or businesses that we believe in, enjoy, interest us, and make a positive impact in the lacrosse world and beyond.
Are you someone that checks one or all of those boxes? We hope so!
Since we are nationwide outfit with varying sizes of events, we feel it makes sense to condense our organized sponsorship offering to our Lake Placid Lacrosse events where we have the largest audience and we know we can deliver on your activation 110%.
In 2020, we'll host four events in Lake Placid:
Although we have developed the specific activations below, we are open to case by case arrangements in other markets. If that sparks your interest after you review our developed programs, please contact Kevin Leveille directly to look at building a custom program.
We're excited to blend your brand or business into our Summit Lacrosse Ventures™ and Lake Placid Lacrosse™ fabric.
