Ohio Cup History
The Ohio Cup started in 1996 by Dan Kiser, Tony Currie & Jeff Hill with 4 teams participating. One being from the state up north. They also ran Hilliard Youth Lacrosse Association (HYLA). In 2006, Joe Chilovich & Tom Davis took over operations of HYLA and the Ohio Cup. During that tenure the tournament added girls lacrosse and the participant teams grew to an average of 42 teams. In 2015, HYLA merged with the Hilliard Optimist Club and the tournament became a separate entity run by Joe Chilovich. The Ohio Cup tournament has been one of the longest running youth tournaments within the State of Ohio.
