LaxNOVA Events' mission is to HAVE FUN while playing our great game. We offer events for scholastic, recreation and club teams.

Welcome to LaxNOVA Events! Celebrating Over 20 Years of FUN!

Welcome to the one of the oldest lacrosse event producers in the DC area.  At LaxNOVA Events, our philosophy is simple...lacrosse is meant to be FUN!!!  Our tournaments are focused on competition and a championship format.  The "Recruiting Tournaments" held throughout the country serve a great purpose in getting our student-athletes exposed to college coaches and we support them 100%.  However, we believe that we also need to remember why we started playing this great game This is our focus...

Our most notable event is our long-running Fall Brawl 7v7 Tournament which is held each November and celebrating its 20th anniversary in 2021.  In 2020 we added the Winter Thaw which will be held each February just before the spring season starts.  These events are focused on scholastic and recreation-based teams.

For 2023, we are adding the SUMMER SLAM PlayDay for Boys.  The purpose of this event is similat to the Winter Thaw.  It's meant as a tool for scholastic coaches and players to reconnect after a long club summer season and befor fall ball!.

We hope you will consider us for your tournament needs.  We have built this concept from the ground floor and we receive numerous positive comments from parents, players and coaches each year.  Our tournaments are a FUN, EXCITING display of the game that we all know and love so well.

SUMMER SLAM - New Event for 2023 - Aug 26 or 27, 2023

The Summer Slam is designed after the Winter Thaw to allow scholastic coaches and players and chance to reconnect after the summer club season. This event is only open to high school boys public school teams.


With schools now back in session up to 2 weeks before Labor Day, let's get the teams togther before the fall club and high school league season begins in September.  This will be the first chance for the team of 2024 to play together and start the process of pre-season for the upcoming season.

The event is designed as a playday format and all teams will play four, 2x20 minute games.  Teams will be ranked based on the 2024 rankings and be split evenly for balanced competition.

The event will be held at our home facility, Revolution Sportsplex on either August 26 or 27, 2023.  Click on the tab above for more information!

SAVE THE DATES!! Boys - Nov 18-19, Girls - Nov 25-26

Save the dates for the 22nd Annual NOVA Fall Brawl which will be held at Revolution Sportsplex in Leesburg, Virginia.  We are excited to celebrate another year with the Northern Virginia Lacrosse Community!

2023 Dates

Boys Weekend - November 18-19, 2023

Girls Weekend - November 25-26, 2023

Team Reservations Open August 1st!

What started in 2002 as a simple 1-day event to get the players back into lacrosse after football season has grown into an annual celebration of the game and its players, coaches, officials and parents.  It's great that everyone can still get together for a weekend of FUN before the hotly contested spring season begins.

This event is about serving the lacrosse community and its needs.  After a long off-season of club tournaments, fall youth developmental programs, and "Green Days", lets get RE-FOCUSED on what really matters.  The upcoming SPRING SEASON!!  Each year we welcome over 250 teams and over 3000 players to the event who share our vision of FUN!!

We will once again have Varsity Elite, Varsity Open and JV Divisions for the high school teams.  Since our youth divisions primaryly serve NVYLL, we use Age Divisions for Boys (14U, 12U, etc.) and Grade Divisions for Girls (7/8, 5/6, etc.)

The Fall Brawl doesn't have fancy uniforms, coaches on the sidelines recruiting, predict the state champion or make you an all-American.  What it does is remind all of us that we started playing to HAVE FUN!!  We can take one weekend to remember that!!  Have a great summer and best of luck to everyone in their summer club tournaments and more importantly, SUMMER FAMILY TIME!!

Thank You from the Fall Brawl Staff

The Best Staff!

The NOVA Fall Brawl Staff would like to thank all of you for participating in the 21st Annual NOVA Fall Brawl.

This event has become a fall tradition for the Northern Virginia lacrosse community and beyond. As many of you know, it's not about the lacrosse, its about the friends, smiles and memories from a great weekend. Many of you have become our friends and as we all know, the lacrosse community is small and we all cross paths in many different ways.

Please help us preserve our mission of the FUN while playing the game of lacrosse. It's just a game, and a game is merely a tool we have been given to develop, foster and cherish friends and relationships. Many of us only see each other once a year and many of you only cross paths with our staff through email.

Our staff is a family and several of them travel hundreds of miles each year to be a part of this event. At the end of the day, the wins and losses mean nothing, but at the same time, the memories mean everything. As a staff, we thank you for those memories and a reason for all of us to get together each year to work hard for you. Our staff is the hardest working and most professional staff we have ever worked with and we are forever grateful to them and to you.

As a parting gift to all of you, we have made our event photos FREE for download.  Please visit our website at and click on the EVENT PHOTOS tab at the top.  Please remember to tag our wonderful photographer Dave McLean (@mcleandk_photography) and LaxNOVA Events (@laxnovaevents) as well if you post on Instagram.

The 2023 Fall Brawl will be our 22nd Year and we are looking forward to another phenomenal event.

Mark your calendars for November 18-19 and November 25-26, 2023

Please also remember to check our Facebook page at and our Instagram account at @laxnovaevents.

Happy Holidays and Happy New Year. See you next year for the 2nd Annual Fall Brawl!!!
