Welcome to LaxNOVA Events! Celebrating 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 Creators Games which will be played each October on Indigenous Peoples Day (former Columbus Day) followed by 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.

In the summer of 2021, we will be adding the Virginia Club Lacrosse Championships to the slate.  This event will be for all of the full-service clubs in Virginia and a chance to find out who is the BEST in Virginia!

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.

2021 Dates

Boys Weekend - November 20-21

Girls Weekend - November 27-28

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, 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.  To be consistent with local youth leagues, we will move to the new format for the boys (14U, 12U, 10U and 8U) and stick with Grade Divisions for the girls.  Please let us know if we are mis-informed of the current age protocols.

This Fall Brawl doesn't have fancy uniforms, get you recruited, 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 Fall Brawl Staff would like to thank all of you for participating in the 2020 Fall Brawl at Evergreen Sportsplex.

2020 has been a year to remember...well, maybe not.  But, we are so happy to have provided this opportunity for you in a year where nothing is certain.  We started with a change in venue due to restrictions and then had the dreaded "NO SPECTATORS" rule thrust upon us.  It was a year of dodging and weaving but we made it work.

The 2020 Fall Brawl was NOT what Fall Brawl lacrosse is all about.  For those of you who have been with us before, you know that we normally have packed sidelines, lots of laughter and most of the time, COLD weather.  This year it was quite...VERY quiet and warm (for November).  Not quite the "feel" of what this event is all about.

We want to offer a since THANK YOU to all of the parents who respected the rules and made our jobs and the Evergreen staff jobs much easier by abiding bu the policy You've set a great example for your children and showed them that we can all come together when we need to for the good of the community.

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 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 every worked with and we forever grateful to them and to you.

Please let us know how we did.  Here is the link to our Feedback Form where you can help us improve:

The 2021 Fall Brawl will be our 20th Anniversary and we have planned a bunch of special touches for everyone involved.  We plan to make a formal announcement of date and location by the end of January.

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

Happy Holidays and Happy New Year. See you next year for the 20th Annual Fall Brawl!!!
