The next Big12 Lacrosse Invitational will take place June 16-18, 2017, in Columbia, Maryland. The Big12 event is developed and structured to provide high school club lacrosse participants in the rising freshman, freshman, sophomore, and junior classes a tournament venue, schedule, and program that provides a Fall tournament experience – combining Elite level competition, NCAA DI, DII, DIII evaluation, and recruiting exposure for the team/players participating.

Big12 Lacrosse Invitational was founded by Kevin Mayer, Executive Director, Rock Lacrosse, in close collaboration with George Parks, Co-Director, Rock Lacrosse. Proceeds from Big12 events will be donated to the Brigance Brigade, a foundation which supports families with members suffering from ALS (Lou Gehrig's Disease). The battle against ALS holds a special place in Coach Mayer's heart. Frank "Lynn" Mayer, Kevin's father, passed away from ALS in 2001. During Mr. Mayer's battle with the disease, the support garnered – outside of medical attention – had a definitive and significant impact on the quality of his life and the Mayer family during his remaining years.

If you would like to donate to the Brigance Brigade Foundation as a part of a Big12 Lacrosse event, visit their website. When donating, please enter Big12 into the comment box within the link/donation area.
