Laxpalooza 2011 was a huge success, thanks in part to Discover Lehigh Valley Sports. We look forward to hosting future Laxpalooza lacrosse tournaments right here in Lehigh Valley and will
continue to look to Discover Lehigh Valley Sports for its gracious help and support. We couldn’t be more pleased with the cooperation we received, from helping our committee organize various
schedules to marketing the event to making sure everything went off without a hitch.

We at would like to thank Discover Lehigh Valley Sports for its support and help in networking our organization to businesses, organizations and local cable provider, Service Electric. Your support was instrumental in allowing our organization to host the Boys’ 12 L-3 USTA/MS Tennis Sectional Championship. We value your partnership in helping us host this event and our children’s tennis clinic, where they can experience the benefits the game of tennis offers. We especially would like to thank Michael Kusmuk, who extended himself to us too many ways to count. We look forward to workingwith Discover Lehigh Valley Sports next year in hosting our event.

– Michael Murphy, President,

The Great Lehigh Valley soccer tournament was a phenomenal tournament for our team. The tournament was very well run and the competition was great! It was our first overnight trip as a team and we couldn’t have picked a better place. We will definitely be back next year!

What a wonderful tourney it was this past weekend in the Lehigh Valley. It was a nicely run tournament, all the games were close to (if not on time) & the Lehigh Valley Sports Complex is by far the best facility I have seen. I currently coach a U12 Boys team & will surely consider taking them to next years tourney.
