Southington Lacrosse Association presents the “Ken Vilar Memorial Jamboree”

Girls Event:         Saturday May 6th, 2017

Boys Event:         Sunday May 7th, 2017

The Southington Lacrosse Association (SLA) has renamed their annual lacrosse jamboree the "Ken Vilar Memorial Jamboree”.  The name change is to honor Ken Vilar, one of the co-founders of the SLA in 1989, as well as the organizing force to start the varsity lacrosse program at Southington High School back in 1992.  Ken unexpectedly passed away in May of 2012.

Ken and SLA held their initial jamboree back in the Spring of 1989 when the association first got underway.  That jamboree had only 5 teams, one of them coming all the way from Canada to compete.  Over the next few years, the jamboree continued to grow and peaked at close to 100 teams and two locations during his tenure.  Ken’s love of the game and passion for teaching the sport kept him involved with SLA over the years, and he even got to coach is grandson before he passed.

SLA’s “Ken Vilar Memorial Jamboree” will be an action packed weekend of Boys and Girls lacrosse.  Sean Missal, President of SLA, commented "Ken Vilar was a key figure in the growth of lacrosse in Southington.  We feel it is important to honor Ken for his passion for the sport and love of the game, and we can accomplish this now and into the future by renaming our jamboree the “Ken Vilar Memorial Jamboree.”  The SLA sponsored "Ken Vilar Memorial Jamboree" will now be in its 29th year this coming May 2017.  The girls event will be held on Saturday, May 6th and the boys on Sunday, May 7th.  For more information, please visit our website:  http://www.southingtonlacrosse.org/
