Additionally, coaches or leaders that register multiple teams will have a chance to win complimentary registrations and hotel rooms for up to four people to the US Lacrosse Convention, Jan. 22-24, 2016, in Baltimore.
“Winter was brutal for much of the country, but with the spring lacrosse season here, it’s time for teams to get out on the field and play,” said Beth Porreca, director of special events at US Lacrosse. “We welcome all types of lacrosse organizations to register their teams. Playing teams from different states remains one of the most popular features of US Lacrosse tournaments. That allows coaches to see how their teams stack up and players a chance to make new friends.”
The US Lacrosse Regional Championships guarantee teams at least four games over the three-day tournament, with age-appropriate rules and US Lacrosse-trained officials. Teams compete in pool play before progressing through bracket play to determine a champion, often against teams from different states. US Lacrosse will name a “Keeper of Lacrosse” Sportsmanship Award winner at each championship. Certified athletic trainers are on site, and there is no admission charge for spectators.
In the U15 division, the top four teams at each regional championship will earn automatic invitations with free or discounted registration to the seventh annual US Lacrosse U15 National Championships
