Play Close to Home at These Two Buku Summer Tournaments

Orange County, CA (April 3, 2018) – Buku Events will be running two tournaments this summer lacrosse season for both boys’ and girls’ divisions.  SoCal Summer Kickoff – will return in Orange County at OC Great Park, Irvine, CA on June 2nd and 3rd.  Battle at the Beach – will return for its second year in Costa Mesa, CA on July 7th and 8th.

Buku Events is supported by US Lacrosse to bring teams the best events possible.  We base our events with the US Lacrosse framework in mind: venue, game format, risk management, event administration, and certified officials.  Currently working with US Lacrosse’s sponsored program for each tournament to be sanctioned this program helps guarantee that each event has been organized with the participants in mind.  Participants know what to expect from the rules and officials to the location of the athletic trainers.

Teams from up and down the west coast will be traveling to compete in these tournaments with their summer teams.  Both tournaments will be a fun-filled competitive lacrosse weekend for athletes and families.  With locations in Orange County only a few miles from famous California beaches, these make for a perfect addition to the summer schedule for local and out-of-town teams.

“These events will be a perfect fit for all teams and families to enjoy.  We look to increase the first class feel of every one of our tournaments and events.  With our newly improved team for Buku Events our tournaments will ensure for a great weekend for teams, families, and coaches”, said tournament director Johnny Rodriguez.
