US Box Lacrosse Association sanctioned tournaments provide players with the highest level of competition in the country, all while ensuring strict safety standards are met in each and every game played. All USBOXLA sanctioned events feature fully certified USBOXLA officials and a USBOXLA Gameplay Coordinator, who oversees the event and ensures the safest possible play. USBOXLA certified officials have successfully completed the USBOXLA Referee Certification Program, ensuring the association’s Rule & Situational Book – the country’s leading and most trusted game-governing guidelines – are adhered to at every tournament. Since 2010, USBOXLA has sanctioned over 300 tournaments in the US, providing a playing environment that fosters safety, skill, and success.


The USBOXLA Nationals are the single biggest box lacrosse event to ever take place in the United States. Hosted in Huntington Beach, California, the three-day event features over 100 teams, 1,500 players, and over 5,000 in total attendance with clubs from all over North America taking part. Gold, silver, and bronze medals are awarded to teams in Novice, Pee Wee, Bantam, Midget, and High School divisions. Both boys and girls divisions, plus A, B, and C skill levels are available. The USBOXLA Nationals sell out every year.
