More than two hundred 7-18 year old youth boys and girls celebrated the First annual World Lacrosse Beach Festival just a hundred yards from the Gulf of Mexico shoreline on world renowned Siesta Beach. The two day tournament is a fundraiser created by Casey Powell co-founder with Heather O'Neill of the Casey Powell World Lacrosse Foundation. The foundation was created to share, support and inspire lacrosse worldwide.

The tournament featured three-on-three speed lacrosse without pads, a different style than regular lacrosse. 

Six courts were set up on amazing Siesta Beach where more than one hundred, 30 minute long lacrosse games would be played over the two days. A game featuring some of the worlds best professional lacrosse players was also featured during the festival.
