The third annual Summer Celebration boys lacrosse tournament will be held on Saturday, June 21 in Williamsburg, Virginia with U9, U11, U13, U15, HS JV and HS Varsity boys divisions offered. All games will be played at the Warhill Sports Complex. This is one of the finest tournament facilities in the nation, consisting of 13 adjacently positioned fields. Seven are regulation-sized synthetic turf fields and six are regulation-sized Bermuda grass fields.
The tournament site is also located within minutes of attractions such as Colonial Williamsburg, Jamestown, Busch Gardens and Water Country USA. All Summer Celebration participants and their families can take advantage of exclusive discounts to attend the theme parks while in town. Single-Day Tickets to Busch Gardens, for example, are discounted nearly 50% for Summer Celebration attendees.
The Summer Celebration is a one-day 10 v 10 tournament-style event with divisions limited to 16 teams. Teams are guaranteed a minimum of three 52 minute games and divisions are based on 2014 U.S. Lacrosse Age and Eligibility Guidelines. Boys enrolled in high school must play on either a JV or Varsity team.
HS JV & V: Participated in a high school program
Any player who has participated in any high school program (high school club, freshman, frosh/soph, junior varsity, varsity, etc.) is not eligible to compete in the U15 division.
No high school graduates may compete.
Participants may play "up" in age division but may not play in two divisions.
Rules of Play
Participants may not compete for more than one team.
All U9, U11, U13 and U15 games will be played in accordance with US Lacrosse Boys Youth Rules unless modified below.
All HS JV and HS Varsity games will be governed by NFHS rules unless modified below.
Games will consist of two 24 minute running halves with a four minute halftime.
A central horn will be used to govern the timing of all games.
A single blast of the horn will mark the start and conclusion of each half. A quick double blast of the horn will indicate that only two minutes remain in the half.
Each team will receive one 45 second timeout per game. After 45 seconds, teams will be whistled back onto the field. If a team does not return in a prompt manner, they will either lose possession of the ball or be assessed a delay of game penalty.
Timeouts may not be called during the final two minutes of either half and are not permitted during any sudden death play.
All penalties are start stop time and will be kept on the field by the bench side official.
Face-offs will be conducted at the beginning of each half and after every goal, regardless of score.
Non-championship game ties will be broken by sudden death Braveheart.
For the safety of players, substitutions will be permitted during Braveheart play on any dead ball situation and at any other point at the discretion of game officials.
Championship game ties will be broken by four minute sudden death periods of play.
