Overview
In 2005, the Utah Lacrosse Association (ULA) launched the Ski Town Shoot Out to give youth teams in the West a well-organized tournament within convenient travel distance.
 
Park City, Utah is high-altitude site for this high-action youth jamboree June 12-14, 2014. And a quality experience for participants is the organizers’ aim. In the last five years, respondents to a post-tournament survey have rated their satisfaction with the event at greater than 90 percent.
 
The action takes place at four of Utah’s finest and best-maintained sports facilities: Park City’s Ecker Hill, Quinns, Matt Knoop Field, North 40 and Willow Creek field complexes. The venues - elevation 6,000+ feet - are near Interstate 80, less than 40 minutes’ drive from Salt Lake International Airport, offering convenient access.
 
The organizing committee has secured discounts for local lodging. We encourage parents and players to stay the weekend and enjoy hiking, biking, fishing, and other recreational attractions, including Deer Valley, Park City Mountain Resort, the Canyons, and the Utah Olympic Park.

The 2013 Park City Ski Town Shootout exceeded expectations.  The field consisted of over 94 boys and girls teams from Arizona, Nevada, California, Colorado, Idaho, Texas, and Utah.  Our partnership with the New Park Resort provided a great venue for the opening ceremonies and location for all the teams to stay at.  We also expanded our vendor village and welcomed some local lacrosse supporters such as Tribal West, Face-off Lacrosse, and Storm Athletics.

Brackets
The boys tournament has three brackets with between 12 and 36 teams participating in the U11, U13, U15 & U17 age groups. Each boys team has a five-game schedule (one on Thursday, two on Friday and Saturday).
 
The girls tournament has two brackets - U15 and U17. New this year: Each girls team has a five-game schedule (one on Thursday, two on Friday and Saturday).
 
Games are one hour long. You will be able to find detailed rules, procedures and other information elsewhere on this site.
 
Games on Thursday take place between 3:30 and 8:30 pm. On Friday, games take place from 11:00 am to 7:00 pm and on Saturday, most games take place from 8:00 am to 5:00 pm. The tournament organizers will do their best to schedule games so that teams have uninterrupted time to enjoy Park City.
 
Due to an anticipated sell-out of the tournament, field availability will be at a premium. The organizers do not foresee the availability of add-on “challenge” games in the boys  or girls brackets.

Sportsmanship
The Ski Town Shoot Out is predicated on sportsmanship and camaraderie. According to one participating coach, “this tournament has a spirit and soul that make it special.”
 
Celebrate the Creator’s game with us. In our opening ceremonies, players from each team participate in the “Running of the Balls,” building a multicolored lacrosse ball pyramid.
 
Each level of the pyramid represents the people involved in the game. The base is your teammates, followed by coaches, officials, opponents, and family.
 
Throughout the event, we ask all participants to instill in the players a sense of honor, respect, and appreciation for the roots of the game.
