The US Box Lacrosse Association (USBOXLA) is proud to announce that for the fifth straight spring, Team USBOXLA will be attending the prestigious Trevor Wingrove Memorial Tournament in Coquitlam, British Columbia (June 5-7), as well as taking part in a pre-tournament training camp in Burnaby, British Columbia (June 3-4).

As announced last year, 2020 will be the first time that the Team USBOXLA national program will be split between a Team USBOXLA West and a Team USBOXLA East roster. Team USBOXLA West will be attending the Trevor Wingrove Memorial, while the Team USBOXLA East selection process and tournament details will be announced soon. 

“Attending the Trevor Wingrove Memorial has become a tradition for our Team USBOXLA program,” said USBOXLA Co-Founder and President, Shaydon Santos. “We’ve been able to measure our association’s growth by competing against the highly talented Canadian clubs that attend the Trevor Wingrove. 

“We’ve seen significant growth and success achieved by the elite USBOXLA members that make up these teams since we first attended this tournament back in 2016.”
