Price: $750 per team 

Format: 3-game guarantee/pool play with two 20 minute halves and a two minute half time. Pool play with advancement to championship brackets. Top 2 teams from each pool advance to playoffs. 

Eligibility: The tournament follows US Lacrosse age & eligibility guidelines. USL membership is required for all players and coaches.  

It is incredibly important for MSHSL teams to note that while the tournament is intended to serve as an end of season contest for the spring season, it must be run as a summer event. This is to ensure teams comply with MSHSL guidelines which restrict the number of competitions allowed in a single-season to 13 games. Coaches and team administrators should review MSHSL policies and check with athletic directors to ensure that they follow "out of season" guidelines. 


Team Registration Deadline: Now Closed
