Growing up, all we ever wanted to do was play as much lacrosse as possible. Our fondest memories was getting together with buddies and playing backyard lax. We played for endless hours pretending to be our hero’s in the game, being creative as we could, learning new ways to pass and shoot the ball and think outside the traditional ways of game play. Our passion for the game has shaped us into who we are today. Lacrosse has taught us to be many things, but most of all it has taught us the life lessons of respect, honour and integrity. With sticks in our hands and a team surrounding us, nothing else matters.
Forget about carrying your own nets to the park, putting the ball through or over the fence in your backyard or running down the field to get your ball. Forget about trying to remember the score and about calling your own penalties. Take the essence of field and box lacrosse and combine them with real rinks and fields, the support of official referees and you get the largest backyard lacrosse tournament in North America. Each game is played on 50% to scale NLL sized rinks on grass fields with real boards, real netting and real referees. With this, we bring you Lacrossefest - Game On!
Each tournament features divisions of all ages, genders and experience levels without the worry of your ball going out, fencing going down or unofficial refereeing.
This is for “EVERYONE” – If you love to play the game then Lacrossefest is for you!
U9: 4 on 4 + goalie = 9 players
All Other Divisions: 3 on 3 + goalie = 7 players per team
