About the MOLC
Letter from the Director:
Thank you for your interest in the Mount Olive Lacrosse Classic.
I am pleased to announce that the fifth 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, now the
current head coach at Princeton. 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
