For the first time in the teams’ histories, the Colorado Mammoth and Denver Outlaws are working together.
This Saturday, Sept. 12, the two teams are holding the Colin L. Cassidy Memorial Lacrosse Tournament. The event, which is being held at Dick’s Sporting Goods Park, is in memory of Colin Cassidy, a two-year-old Edgewater resident who drowned in Vail this past June while attending the Vail Shootout lacrosse tournament.
Colin’s dad, Chris, has been instrumental in the growth of lacrosse in Colorado. Colin’s mom, Sara, is a public affairs leader at the Denver Metro Chamber of Commerce.
The tournament will run from 8 a.m.-6 p.m. and is open to the public and free to attend. Over 110 teams will be participating.
Some other highlights from the event include Mammoth, Outlaws and U.S. women’s national team player clinics, a police versus firefighters’ game, and dance instruction from the Outlaws dance team.
The tournament is expected to raise $25,000 for two non-profit organizations by the Cassidy family _ the Edgewater Volunteer Fire Department Foundation and the Colorado Lacrosse Foundation.
