Age Groups & Fees

The age groups below are determined by US Lacrosse. Any player can play “up” in an older division. No player may play “down” in a younger division. Each age group has a strict cut off on number of teams.

CLICK HERE FOR U.S. LACROSSE AGE & ELIGIBILITY GUIDELINES

Please remember: the goal of this mid-summer event is to have all teams that attend play in highly competitive games. So please pick your team divisions honestly based on your team’s ability and athleticism.  If any team is able to win all their games they really should have played up a division.

Safety is our number one concern.  Remember that contact is allowed, but not full blown hitting as in high school and box lacrosse.

Full payment is the only way a team is guaranteed the spot they registered for.
