WELCOME TO THE 14TH Annual Fall Finale Classic!
Please take the time to read the following to ensure you get the most out of your tournament experience. Taking a few moments now will help you navigating this weekend’s event much easier:
1) DOWNLOAD THE “APP”
Please download the “Ath-Ed Lacrosse” app from the App Store (iPhone) or Play Store (Android). It is free, and takes only a minute. The app will provide updated schedules, site, map, tournament rules, and more. All coaches and parents should download it prior to the event. Please note that this event does not use Tourney Machine, as we believe we can create better matchups and a more fluid schedule.
During the event, scored will be collected by Tournament HQ, and are typically posted to the app 10-15 minutes after each round ends.
2) SCHEDULES ARE NOW POSTED. LATEST SCHEDULE UPDATE:
- Original Website Posting, Monday, October 29th, 9:30PM
- Friday, 8:30am - Due to Weather, Saturday Schedule Change - All Teams Effected as Start Time has been moved back to 11:30am. Sunday Schedule Change due to a field being out of play... Please check new Schedules.
This file contains the teams for each division:

- 2024 Schedule
- 2023 Schedule
Sunday, Nov 4th:
Please Note: We have scheduled round robin matchups in groupings (i.e. “Group 1” etc.) based on how each team was registered in terms of level of competitiveness. As always, we try to create even matchups based on the information that you submit. This provides more consistent matchups that events that run “A” and “B” divisions, where “A” teams may “play down” to win a championship. For the HS Varsity division, given the large # of teams, we did split this into “Gold” and “Silver” brackets.
NOTE: No requests for changes will be accepted at this time.
3) WAIVER FORMS:
All athletes are required to complete the on-line waiver, or they are not eligible to compete in the event. It is the coach’s responsibility to ensure that all athletes on their team have provided waivers to Tournament HQ. Ath-Ed assumes no liability for waivers that are not collected. Again, please ensure this is completed prior to the event.
4) ARRIVAL AT MERCER COUNTY PARK:
Important: IT IS HIGHLY RECOMMENDED THAT PLAYERS & COACHES ARRIVE 1 HOUR PRIOR TO START TIME, so please plan for this. This ensures that we begin on time, and it allows for self-orientation of the facility + pre-game warm-ups.
5) SITE MAP
- Link: Site Map
- There are 2 main “campuses” within the park for this tournament. We have designated parking assignments on the “site map” to help ensure you are in close proximity to your field. Team will not move between campuses during the day. All games will be in the same location.
Parking Area 1: FIELDS 1-8:
• SATURDAY: 2023 and 2024 divisions
• SUNDAY: All HS Games. HS Varsity, 2021, and 2022 divisions
Parking Area 2: FIELDS 9-13
• SATURDAY: 2023, 2024, 2025, 2026, and 2027-28 divisions
• SUNDAY: No games.
The best way to make sure that you park in the right lot is to look at your team’s schedule, and see which fields your team is playing on. Fields 1-8 are in Lot 1, Fields 9-13 are in Lot 2.
6) TENT SETUP AND ARRIVAL:
Tents can be set up anywhere on campus within reason. We ask that you use your own judgment to ensure that your tent is not in an area where errant shots our passes can reach your tent. As with any sporting event, you are attending at your own risk. Please consider a safe tent area, especially if there are small children with you. As always, watch the game nearest you, especially when crossing behind a goal.
All teams are expected to display good sportsmanship throughout the event. We are all a part of the greatest fraternity in the world. Let’s play with that level of respect!
We are looking forward to a great weekend of lacrosse!
