Welcome to the 2020 Club Lacrosse National Tournament powered by USCLUBLAX held in warm and gorgeous Orlando, Florida at the new and amazing Austin-Tindall Sports Complex. Located only 20 minutes from Disneyworld, this new event will be a premier vacation style lacrosse tournament for boys 2022-2029 teams!
This event will feature the TOP 100 teams as ranked officially by USCLUBLAX HERE. USCLUBLAX, the nation's leading club lacrosse media outlet for rankings and social content, will be powering this tournament. They will handle all social media before, during and post event! The USCLUBLAX Top 100 Rankings features the most talented teams in North America who will battle it out in the FIRST OFFICIAL ELITE TOURNAMENT of the 2020 Club Lacrosse Season. Results will count toward the first 2020 USCLUBLAX Official Rankings at the highest registered level. Only teams from the 2022-2025 grade levels who appear in the 2019 US CLUB LACROSSE rankings will be invited to participate, but the event will still be open to all 2026-2029 teams. USCLUBLAX will start 2026 ranking in January 2020 as well. So, if you want your 2022-2026 club team to be considered for the 2020 USCLUBLAX rankings you need to get to the CLUB LACROSSE NATIONALS!
To make it even better, this event is a vacation style family lacrosse tournament. Each team will play games over 3 days to allow for more resort, Disneyworld and relaxation time with your friends, teammates and family. Teams must stay in one of the world class resorts or hotels or villas we have set up specially for traveling teams which are all nearby. The lighted bermuda grass fields are only 20 minutes away from most spots. It will truly be a memorable event that your entire family will want to attend. So come down early and make a fun trip.
Finally, NAL-North American Lacrosse founding members, Madlax and LI Legacy support this outstanding event. MDLX Events (owned by Madlax) and Top Lacrosse Tournaments (owned by LI Legacy), experienced event management companies, are running this new event and having USCLUBLAX as a partner makes it extremely exciting and validates the quality of teams.

...for individual and/or team booking arrangements, best discounts and rates!
We are working directly with experts Liz & Patti at Avanti Travel. 1-800-560-9946 for Liz or Patti or firstname.lastname@example.org. Feel free to reach out to them if you need any assistance.
We ask and require that every player on every team 'stay and play' in one of the outstanding resorts or hotels. We have made arrangements with these hotels and promised them room bookings from this tournament and so in exchange they have rewarded you and all of you with discounted low prices, great deals and service! Also if we do not book rooms here Kissimmee will not even let us use the facility next year. The local economy counts on room booking in exchange for renting us the facility. Avanti and Kissimmee will check to make sure every team playing has at least 20 rooms booked through this site.
Thanks for understanding!
Tournament Scheduling (Flights):
We encourage families to arrive days early and stay late to enjoy the Disneyworld and area attractions but please arrive to the Orlando airport no later than Friday by 1pm and leave Sunday after 5pm to be safe. We will start games at 4pm earliest on Friday so most teams will play one game under the lights! In general, teams will play 1-2 games on Friday, 2-3 games Saturday and at least one game Sunday. Teams in playoffs will play 2-3 games on Sunday. We will play all championships in the stadium Sunday back to back with youngest teams playing first so older teams will play well into the afternoon. Again, try to book flights as late as possible on Sunday.
This schedule will allow for teams to see Disneyworld or enjoy Orlando. Every division will be 'OPEN' meaning we will not differentiate between B, A & AA teams.

In terms of weather, Austin-Tindall uses the ThorGuard system in place at the facility., a lightning prediction system. If the system goes off with a 15 sec blast the complex needs to be cleared with everyone returning to their cars until the all clear has been sound. As it relates to rain, we want all our events to be completed. We will work with our event during the rain to determine when the fields are no longer in a playable state for the safety of the players.
