The Purpose

The Purpose

To grow, promote, and support New Jersey Lacrosse!

The Garden State Cup powered by Nike was started with the mission to showcase the very best of New Jersey lacrosse and to provide a unique, competitive platform for players and coaches to represent their region at the highest level. The Event will feature regional tryouts, with selected players competing against the other regions for the Garden State Cup!

This is a newer event, restarted in 2022, with its history dating back to the Garden State Games and Garden State Challenge Games. We are excited to bring back a great tradition for NJ lacrosse!
