18 Years & Counting!!

Welcome to the one of the oldest lacrosse tournaments in the DC area.  Our philosophy is simple...lacrosse is meant to be FUN!!!  Our tournaments DO NOT allow "all-star" club teams and we do not promote ourselves to college coaches.  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 during the fall is the time to "return" to play with your spring based team and prepare for the upcoming season.  This is our focus...

Our tournaments are also unique because they use a simple 7v7 format for games.  Each team in our tournament is guaranteed six, 25-minute games so you can see six different opponents (4 for 10U, 8U and 6U).  Each player receives a custom t-shirt as his jersey that can be worn for years to come and each division awards a championship with custom t-shirts (except Boys U9 and Girls 3rd/4th).

We hope you will consider us this fall 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.

General Announcement To ALL Players, Parents and Coaches!!

Dear Players, Parents and Coaches,

Here at Fall Brawl Headquarters, we are hard at work putting all of the final touches on rosters, schedules and other issues for the 18th Annual Fairfax Fall Brawl. This tournament has truly become a celebration of the game of lacrosse and the reminder that number one goal is to have FUN!!!.

Just like so many events now, we are using Facebook to update you on some of the FUN stuff that will happen at this year's Fall Brawl.  Please go to www.facebook.com/fairfaxfallbrawl and "like" us so you can stay up-to-date on information as well as other items of interest throughout the year! 

The BOYS schedules and field maps and other important info will be posted no later than Thursday, November 21st at 9am. The GIRLS schedules and field maps will be posted no later than Thursday, November 28th (Thanksgiving Day) at 9am.  We will also send an email reminder to you that the schedules have been posted.  Please note that schedules are NOT available on-site and a PDF copy should be brought with you, preferably by electronic device.  This is to cut down on paper and trash at the event site. A detailed email about parking, team camps and other important info will be sent a few days prior to the event.

If you have any questions, PLEASE direct them to your coach or team contact. That's all for today and keep an eye out for future emails from us.

See you all soon....

2019 BOYS Rules Released - Changes for 2019!!

For 2019, we have decided to take a BOLD step in the Boys Divisions (girls are still deciding!) and make a rule change that will seem unorthodox to many but...has had some high level experimentation and the results have been very POSITIVE.

For the 2019 Fall Brawl, we will be changing the "shot backup" rule.  No longer will the "closest to the ball" rule be used...instead...whenever the ball leaves the field, regardless of reason, it will be awarded to the team that DID NOT touch it last.  A shot that goes out of bounds and DOES NOT touch the goal, goalie or other member of the defending team will be awarded to the defense.

As some of you know, World Lacrosse (click here to see the trial) has been modifying the game of lacrosse for inclusion in the Olympics.  As a surprise to many, the game is VERY SIMILAR to the Fall Brawl with 7v7 play on a smaller field!!

To encourage more quality shots and place less emphasis on "backing up the shot", the rule was changed and had great results and feedback from players, referees and coaches that we've spoken with.  Possessions were more valued, teams played better defense and shots were more selective.

After the Fall Brawl, we will provide a tournament-wide feedback form for players, coaches and parents to let us know what you think.  We will then provide that feedback to World Lacrosse for use in their research.

Embrace the change and lets have some fun!!  Oh...the rules are under the tab at the top!!
