MADISON, NJ - The Madison Jr. Boys Lacrosse Club will host its 21st annual Platypus Lacrosse Festival this Saturday and Sunday 5/30 & 5/31 at Madison High School and the Madison Recreation complex (MRC).
Platypus is a two day celebration of youth lacrosse. This year more than 60 teams in grades 4-7 will be participating in the Madison event. Games will begin at 9a.m. and finish around 3p.m. on both days.
The spirit of the festival is to celebrate all the teams, no winners are announced. The event is just a fun day celebrating youth lacrosse for everyone, a very rare occurrence in today's youth sports.
Eight fields between Madison High School and MRC will be in play. Fourth and fifth graders play on Saturday while six and seventh graders play on Sunday.
Several vendors will be set up for the entire weekend and the food hut will be open both days serving breakfast.
