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 21st Annual NOVA Fall Brawl.  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.

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!!
