The National Stage

From the standardized qualifying path to the ultimate event venue, the 10th annual US Lacrosse Nationals, powered by NXT, pulls out all the stops to deliver the Youth Lacrosse Nationals. The exhaustive debates and claims of greatness spurred on throughout the year vanish as the best Boys and Girls teams from across the country descend on Delaware for the decisive test: four days of high-level-competition combined with a festival style atmosphere at the DE Turf Sports Complex.

Points are accrued from teams competing in the top competitive divisions of up to four qualifying tournaments during the 2017-18 season. Teams that compete in more than four tournaments will have their top point total counts towards qualification status.

Champions of the US Lacrosse Nationals' 13U and 12U divisions will receive automatic bids to the next year's Nationals in each team's subsequent age division. Champions from the 2017 Nationals have secured spots for 2018 in the 14U and 13U girls divisions.
