MVP is one of the premier exposure/recruiting tournaments of the summer. The opportunity to bring MVP 1 to the University of Delaware and to work with the Blue Hen staff is another step in providing the best opportunity we can for high school level lacrosse clubs and teams to be seen by college coaches while competing in a very competitive tournament.
