Letter from the Director:

Thank you for your interest in the Mount Olive Lacrosse Classic. I am pleased to announce that the sixth annual tournament will be once again held at the beautiful Turkey Brook Park facility in Budd Lake, NJ. The purpose of the tournament is to celebrate the greatest game on the planet. Having grown up in Mount Olive, I have seen the sport grow around me since I was old enough to hold a stick. Personally, I have been blessed to have had some great mentors of the game in my life, including my father, John Gallucci Senior. In college, I had the privilege to play for Chris Bates at Drexel University. Inside and outside of the spring season, I have enjoyed not only success in the sport, but more importantly, served the lacrosse community by honoring the student-athletes, coaches, parents, and referees that dedicate their lives to the game.

This tournament is a celebration of everything this game represents. In my experience, this game has given me lifelong friends, the privilege of coaching and developing young student-athletes into outstanding citizens in our society, and has provided a tight-nit brotherhood like no other sport in the world.

The Mount Olive Lacrosse Classic would like to honor the student-athletes that play this game, and the brotherhood that exists between it’s members. Win, lose, or draw, my goal is to make sure the student-athletes that participate in this tournament have fun, enjoy the day, and give their coach(es) a chance to watch them develop throughout the day.

As a not-for-profit tournament, the MOLC is a benefit to the Mount Olive High School and Mount Olive Junior Lacrosse Programs, to allow us to help grow the sport in the Mount Olive community. Although I, along with my staff, will be volunteering our time, our goal is to provide the BEST tournament your team will attend this spring. Thank you for helping us honor the game we love.
