“The Bob Kemp Lacrosse Classic goes beyond the scholarship fund it raises to support a student at the Washington Jesuit Academy.  It gives a young man the opportunity to receive a quality, independent middle-school education, and it helps us remember the legacy of Bob Kemp, a man who knew that a great education can take you far in life.”

– Bill Whitaker
Washington Jesuit Academy, President

“Seriously, what could be better? Of course we are returning! The Kemp family has created an opportunity for the University of Virginia to compete against the best opponent in a recruiting hotbed while supporting the education of a terrific young man Camren. Having read Camren’s own words of gratefulness, our men are motivated by his academic success at Washington Jesuit Academy.”

University of Virginia, Head Lacrosse Coach

“Our program enjoyed our experience at the Bob Kemp Classic last fall and we are appreciative to be a participant again this year. This is a first class event for an incredible cause.”

“The Bob Kemp Lacrosse Classic provided us with a great experience for our guys, a tough competition for our team and a  unique opportunity to contribute to a transformative school… check, check, and check. The perfect way to complete our fall season.”

– Kevin Corrigan
University of Notre Dame, Head Lacrosse Coach

“Last fall’s Bob Kemp Lacrosse Classic was an amazing experience for the University of Denver. Having the opportunity to showcase our 2018 team in the fertile recruiting area of Washington, DC and in front of many of our families and friends on the east coast was so much fun. To participate in this event and in the coaching clinic was an honor, especially in light of the great work done by the Bob Kemp Foundation through his family. It helped kick off another great season for our Denver Pioneers.”

– Bill Tierney
University of Denver, Head Lacrosse Coach

“Simply being associated with the Bob Kemp Classic is an honor for the Limestone Lacrosse Program. Our level of excitement could not be higher leading into this event… The opportunity to compete with Coach Tierney and his Denver Pioneers, while daunting, is going to be a great experience for our team and Coaches. Most importantly is the fact that we can do our part, however small, to help a young man receive an education at the Washington Jesuit Academy in Mr. Kemp’s name.”
