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 Winter Thaw which will be held each February just before the spring season starts.  These events are focused on scholastic and recreation-based teams.

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.

Finally!! TEAM RESERVATIONS are Now Open for the 20th Anniverary Fall Brawl & First Annual Creators Games.  This celebration of all that is FUN with our game fills quickly so please RESERVE your team's space TODAY!!  Remember, you DO NOT need to know who your players are at this point.

Player Registration does not open until October.

Thanks for your dedicated support for our events each year.  We started it as a FUN tournament because there weren't any options.  Today, it serves as such an important reminder of the FUN part of the game when there are plenty of options!!  No scholarships, MVP's or All-World voting at this one.  Just a lot of smiles, laughs and a little lacrosse in there too!!

We hope to see you!!

Save the dates for the 20th Anniversary Fairfax Fall Brawl which will be held at our new home, Evegreen Sportsplex.  We are excited to celebrate our 20th year with the Northern Virginia Lacrosse Community!

2021 20th Anniversary 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 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!!
