US Lacrosse Championships and World Festivals Information


To Our Valued Lacrosse Members


As you know, the summer tournament landscape is full of events for lacrosse players of all ages. Some events have different priorities and standards than others.

US Lacrosse has been running tournaments since its 1998 inception. While they have evolved in scope and format over the years, our events continue to provide the organization's national membership with playing opportunities that allow participants to compete with class, honor the game, and build relationships with teammates and opponents alike. Our focus remains providing a positive, first-class experience for players and parents at reasonable pricing, and we believe our events compare favorably to the marketplace in that regard.

Below please find details on US Lacrosse-hosted tournaments this summer, in chronological order. We encourage you to pass this information on to teams and coaches in your area. More than 200 teams have already registered. More information on registration and volunteer opportunities will be available on each event's website. Thank you and have a great season.

The Role of Parents
You, the parent, are equally as important to your child's positive lacrosse experience as the coach of the team. In order for your child to get the most out of playing lacrosse, it is important that you do the following:

One: Be supportive of your child by giving encouragement and showing an interest in his or her team. Positive reinforcement encourages learning and fun. Research has shown that a ratio of five positive statements (compliments, positive recognition) for each negative statement (criticisms, corrections) is ideal for helping young athletes do their best. Try to maintain a 5:1 ratio in your comments to your child.

Two: Attend games whenever possible. If you cannot attend, ask about your child’s experience, not whether the team won or lost. Some questions that you might ask before asking about the final score include: "Did you try as hard as you could? Did you have fun? Did you learn anything today that might make you a better player in the future?"

Three: Be a positive role model by displaying good sportsmanship at all times to coaches, officials,opponents and your child’s teammates. "Honoring the Game" is an important part of what US Lacrosse represents. Help us by honoring the game in your behavior as a spectator.

Four: Let your child set his own goals and play the game for himself, herself. Be your child’s "home court advantage" by giving him or her your unconditional support regardless of how well he or she performs.

Five: Let the coach coach. Refrain from giving your child advice when he or she is playing. Use positive reinforcement with your child’s coach. Let the coach know when he or she is doing a good job.

Six: Respect the decisions of the referee or umpire. This is an important part of honoring the game. Your child will pay more attention to how you act than to what you say.

Seven: Read the rulebook. A full understanding of the rules will help you enjoy the game and educate others.

Eight: Get to know who is in charge. Meet with the leadership of the program, whether it’s school sponsored or recreational, to discuss topics such as cost, practice and game scheduling, insurance coverage, emergency procedures, etc.

Nine: Get involved! A great way to support your child's lacrosse experience is by becoming a volunteer for the program. Some of the ways you can get involved: keep the scorebook, run the clock, line the fields, manage equipment, chaperon trips, raise funds, organize clinics and team social events, update the team web site, photograph players and organize carpooling.

Ten: Sit back and enjoy the game. Remember, lacrosse is played for FUN.
