We are talking about club lacrosse. Travel lacrosse is governed by a league (PAL) that can enforce rules. I believe PAL imposses an alcohol (and drug) free zone. Club lacrosse has no rules and is the wild west. I have no problem with enjoying alcohol and generally would not judge. I do not understand some parents making it a necessity to drink early and often at every single tournament. It is by no means specific to any one town or demographic. I would caution making such broad accusations. In fact some of the most affluent towns are known as the most notorius drinkers. Most parents are encouraging, respectful and trying to enjoy the day. Some just can not control themselves. I wonder if these parents ever get embarassed by their actions. Unfortunately their sons probably are.
