Save the dates of August 6-7, 2016. Dana Hills High School head coach Chris Iltis has informed us that Shootout for Soldiers will return to Southern California on those dates. Once again the event will be held at Dana Hills High School. Last year the 24-hour lacrosse game raised over $400,000 with stops in Baltimore, Long Island, Boston, Ohio, and California. SFS provides funding to the Army Ranger Lead the Way Fund, the Gary Sinise Foundation, the Semper Fi Fund, and the Wounded Warrior Project.
Started in 2012 by a group of Baltimore high school students from Boys’ Latin School of Maryland, the SFS has grown in popularity and success each year. The inaugural SFS event shattered the world record for world’s longest lacrosse game ever, and raised $105,000 through the participation of 1,000 players. The next year SFS expanded to McDonough High School in Baltimore and added a girls’s game.
