Great Pumpkin Shootout Travel Team Edition

The Great Pumpkin Shootout is our way of bringing together the expanding Minnesota lacrosse community to enjoy one final weekend outdoors and culminate the Great Northern Lacrosse League (GNLL) Fall Field Season. Since its inception in 2012, the event has grown to include over 75 teams and 3,000 participants each year. 

Traditionally, it has been limited to Association based teams but we are excited for 2019 to be the first year we host a Great Pumpkin Shootout geared towards travel teams. HS teams looking to play a higher level of competition are more than welcome to join. 

The tournament provides the following for each game:  
    •    Certified UMLOA/MLUA officials
    •    Certified EMT's equipped with AED's 
    •    Professional Site Managers / Scorekeepers​​​​​​
    •    Online standings, schedules and updates 
    •    Tournament and Homegrown Apparel for Purchase
