The Knights of Columbus Councils at Cathedral of the Most Sacred Heart of Jesus, All Saints Catholic Church, and Holy Ghost Catholic Church are sponsoring the Fourth Annual Knights Cup Lacrosse Tournament to benefit charitable endeavors throughout Knoxville and our surrounding East Tennessee communities. Our first three lacrosse tournament in 2016-2018 raised close to $30,000 which was directed to projects that supported child, pregnancy, and family assistance services at Catholic Charities and a special outreach initiative to homeless families in Knoxville.
Those who are interested in volunteering can use the following link to see what days and positions will be needed in addition to signing up for a specific task. Everyone is welcome and any time offered would truly be appreciated since it will be for such a good cause.
The success of our first three lacrosse tournaments has led to the most ambitious of the 16 athletic events the Knights have promoted since 2004 to support charitable services in our community. We are once again inviting local businesses and welcoming Brother Knights and families who would like to volunteer to join with us in making the 2019 Knights Cup a big win for the families who will be served by this exciting and increasingly popular addition to the spring sports landscape of Knoxville and East Tennessee.
The Knights Cup Lacrosse Tournament will be held Friday-Saturday, April 25-27, 2019 at Blaine Stadium on the campus of Knoxville Catholic High School. The expanded three-day event will include girls high school lacrosse games for the first time, four high school games featuring some of the strongest teams in Tennessee, and a youth and middle school competition. In addition to this, Collegiate action will be part of the Knights Cup for the third consecutive year as the NAIA will be bringing its Independent Conference Final Four Championship Tournament to Knoxville.
Collierville High School from Memphis, FCA Chattanooga, Boyd Buchanan High School from Chattanooga and the Roane County Knights will be coming to Knoxville to join Blount County High School, West Knox Warriors, Christian Academy of Knoxville, and Knoxville Catholic High School to complete the lineup of boys high school teams competing in the Knights Cup. Roane County Lady Knights and Christian Academy of Knoxville will compete in the girls division of our event.
Youth and middle school competition will include Farragut Youth Lacrosse, Knoxville Youth Sports Lacrosse, Sacred Heart Cathedral School, Roane County Knights, Christian Academy of Knoxville, Hardin Valley Middle School, and the Knox Cannons.
