The US Box Lacrosse Association (USBOXLA) has officially postponed this year’s USBOXLA Nationals.
Previously scheduled for August in Huntington Beach, and then Labor Day in San Jose the impact of the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic has again required a postponement of this event to a later date. That date has yet to be determined.
Originally, USBOXLA officials were hopeful that the State of California and Santa Clara County would have reached the final phases of reopening by September, allowing for youth tournaments like the Nationals to take place. Unfortunately, cases continue to climb and state, county and facility guidelines prohibit such a large scale indoor event.
USBOXLA is committed to hosting the Nationals in the future months but only if pandemic-related government requirements and re-opening regulations allow for an event like Nationals to be safely hosted. USBOXLA will not put any players, coaches, referees or other attendees in an unsafe or high-risk environment.
The US Box Lacrosse Association (USBOXLA) is the country’s largest and most recognized box-specific governing body operating today. USBOXLA is a 501(c)3 charitable corporation whose mission is to develop and promote box lacrosse in the United States through a unified organization that provides high-value services, programs, and benefits to its members. Founded in 2010 by current University of Denver Associate Head Coach, Matt Brown, and former National Lacrosse League player, Shaydon Santos, USBOXLA has grown from a small regional association to one that presently serves over 25,000 individual members all over the US, all playing box lacrosse the right way.
