we’ve previously participated in Heritage Cup as the Lithuanian heritage team but that elephant in the room has postponed that event to an unknown date. It’s time to do a little pivot and get people back on the field.
I’d like to send out an invitation to any North American-based players with heritage to Estonia, Latvia or Lithuania. Like HC, no one is checking to see if you qualify or anything like that. It’s all honour-based. That stuff is reserved for World Lacrosse events. The date is July 30 – August 1 in Albany, NY.
We would compete as “Baltic Boys” (generic name at the moment, I have something up my sleeve). The event is called “Happy Lax” and is being put on by the same people who run the Placid tournament. It should be a great event and I’m hoping we can put together a roster to represent the Baltic region.

To keep things separated, drop me a line if you or someone you know might be interested firstname.lastname@example.org
And yes, we are overdue for a Lithuania Lacrosse update. Hope to have something for you all shortly.
In the meantime, take care.
