Teams from throughout the Hudson Valley/Long Island/Connecticut region, including mainly squads from the Nutmeg State, will be joining together for a good cause from 9 a.m. until 3 p.m. on Saturday, Nov. 27.

That’s when the fifth annual Sticks for Soldiers Classic will be held at Fairfield Ludlowe High School in Fairfield.

Participating teams including host Fairfield Ludlowe, as well as Ridgefield, Fairfield Prep, Staples, Brien McMahon, Joel Barlow and Daniel Hand.

Games will be played in a 7-on-7 format, with each team playing a minimum of three games. There are varsity and sub-varsity divisions.

All proceeds will benefit Brendan Marrocco, 22, an Army specialist from Staten Island,  who is undergoing physical theraphy at the Walter Reed Army Medical Center in Washington, D.C., after a vehicle he was being transported in was hit by an Explosive Fired Projectile in Iraq and he became the first veteran of the wars in Iraq and Afghanistan to lose all four limbs in combat and survive.

    sounds like an awesome event. Does anyone know how many seniors Fairfield Ludlowe graduated last year? Should they be better or worse?

  4. CT Lax says:

    Can’t make it today unfortunately. Can anyone provide info on what teams/players looked good?

  5. Ram Lax says:

    It was ridiculously cold and windy and not a huge crowd maybe as a result but the 20 or so teams there all seemed to get a good run. No one stood out head or tails above I don’t think.
