Fayette County to Host the Georgia Games' 2009 Lacrosse Championships

The Georgia State Games will be bringing their annual State Games Championship to Peachtree City this summer for the Youth Lacrosse Tournament.

Each participant gets a free commemorative t-shirt and top athletes receive bronze, silver or gold medals! The tournament will be held at the Peachtree City Baseball and Soccer Complex, and all middle and high school teams are encouraged to come out and compete for the gold!
The Georgia Games is a non-profit organization created as a legacy of the 1996 Olympic Games that took place here in Atlanta. The goal was to keep the Olympic Dream alive in the hearts and minds of Georgians, something the Georgia Games is proud to say they have been able to do for 19 years!

The Georgia will also be bringing back the Scholastic Olympiad Program again for the 4th year. The program is a statewide competition between schools in all divisions. Our middle and high school athletes can earn points based on four criteria for their school. Points are then totaled for each individual in each sport and given to their respective school. The top three schools in each division then receive a grant!
