Blue Ridge Classic

    
 
The Blue Ridge Classic is an annual men's club lacrosse tournament held every year on the last full weekend of July in beautiful Asheville,  NC.  Teams come from all over the southeast to compete for a two day tournament beginning early Saturday morning and ending Sunday afternoon.  In recent years the tournament has hosted thirty plus teams and has been split into three brackets to maintain an equal level of competition.  Due to increased interest the Blue Ridge Classic will take place over a three day span with games starting on Friday afternoon and finishing mid day Sunday with an elimination tournament.  Additionally, we are seeking interest at the women's club lacrosse level with the hopes of adding the first ever women's bracket.  An addition never even considered 20 years ago.
 
In the summer of 1995, the tournament's inaugural year, three teams participated (Asheville, Augusta, and Knoxville) in a one day round-robin style competition.  It gave these teams a chance to beat up on each other in the afternoon and then, at night,  go downtown and enjoy the live music, beer, and let's just say the uniqueness of Asheville.   The format for the tournament stayed this way for several years, and in 1999 it expanded to six teams.  Interest from other teams rapidly grew and the weekend of lacrosse has become a festival in it's own right.  It has been given the title Blue Ridge Classic because of its location in the Blue Ridge Mountains of Western North Carolina.
