The Boston Cannons announced the finalist in the Dunkin’ Donuts Skills Competition which will be decided before the team’s final home game on August 6 at Harvard Stadium. The Cannons and Dunkin’ Donuts hosted Skills Competitions in communities throughout the region to determine the finalists. In the competition, kids age-14 and under compete in three different lacrosse skills challenges against peers in their age group.
The finalists will compete on the Harvard Stadium field from 11:00 a.m. – 12:00 p.m. and winners will be recognized during an awards ceremony during the Cannons game against the Florida Launch. Along with on-field recognition, winners in each age group will receive two 2017 Boston Cannons Silver Season Ticket Memberships, a custom Cannons jersey, and a pair of Boston Red Sox Tickets in the Dunkin’ Dugout.
