All-Star Game Featuring Players from The 2024 Class Added On June 28


ANNAPOLIS, Md. – The seventh-annual Naptown National Challenge – presented by Lexus and hosted by Legendary Sports Group (LSG) and HoganLax – that brings together elite nationally recognized youth club lacrosse teams from across the country to Annapolis, is set for June 27-29, 2022, LSG announced.

Founded in 2016 by Hall of Fame coach and LSG president Dave Cottle and Matt Hogan of HoganLax, the Naptown National Challenge is a three-day event in seven divisions (high school graduation classes 2023 through 2026 and youth levels with high school graduation dates of 2027 through 2029). Two tournament days take place at several locations in the Annapolis area, culminating with a championship event at Navy-Marine Corps Memorial Stadium. The four high school division championship games (2023-26) are broadcast on a combination of ESPN+, ESPNU and LaxSportsNet.

New this year is the Naptown Challenge All-Star Game, presented by O2 Sports Insurance, on June 28, featuring players from the high school class of 2024. The All-Star Game will take place at South River High School, and the contest will be broadcast on LaxSportsNet.

"The Naptown National Challenge is a prefect showcase for O2 Sports Insurance to build a partnership. At O2 Sports Insurance we design and deliver comprehensive insurance programs for sports teams, leagues, players and associations and we are proud to be the insurance choice for Naptown and the inaugural All Star Game here in 2022”, stated O2 Sports Insurance President Kandace Kalin.

“The Naptown Challenge is one of the signature events of the summer lacrosse season,” said Cottle. “The best of the best make their way to participate and enjoy all that Annapolis offers teams and fans alike, and this year’s edition will be no different. We have elevated the event with the addition of the Naptown Challenge All-Star Game, which will give additional exposure to players from the 2024 class to college programs. We are grateful for the support of our title sponsor Lexus and our All-Star Game sponsor O2 Sports Insurance. These partnerships allow us to provide a tremendous experience for our teams and spectators.”

The Naptown National Challenge remains a destination for the nation’s top lacrosse teams to compete against national-level competition. Naptown draws the attention of hundreds of college coaches, and the event partners with NextPro to offer players high-quality game film and highlight footage to boost their lacrosse careers.
