After the excitement of the Indoor Championships in February, The ALA in conjunction with Lacrosse Victoria and Eltham Lacrosse Club are excited to announce the 2020 ALA U18 Boy’s and Girl’s National Championship will be held from the 8 – 13 of April at Eltham Lacrosse Club.

Competing over the 6 day event will be 10 (5 boys and 5 girls) teams including 4 visiting teams, with Taiwan & New Zealand participating in the boys and Waikato and Auckland (TBC) in the girls.

This is Eltham’s first time hosting a National Event since 2011 and the ALA is excited to be working with their large and committed volunteer workforce lead by Owyne Zobel. Recently Eltham has successfully hosted Lacrosse Victoria’s grand finals and now they will be showing off their new facilities, changerooms, lights and fields, to the rest of the lacrosse community. Tournament organisers hope to take full advantage of Eltham’s new facilities with the planning of twilight Championship matches and additional exhibition matches trialling the new 6v6 format outside of the U18 Event.

As per the ALA promise to continue to make the match day environment safe and welcoming the ALA is please to inform the lacrosse community the ALA U18 Event is an non alcohol event. Further, to ensure the safety of players, officials and spectators the ALA, with support from State Bodies and Eltham Lacrosse Club, will be putting in measures such as roped boundaries and “no spectator areas”. We trust the lacrosse community can understand and will respects these measures.

Once again ALA will be utilising online fixtures and results through their results portal (click here) and have acquired the services of the Australian Lacrosse Network to stream the event.  Further details regarding streamed games will be announced in due course so stay tuned.
