On March 17th & 18th, the Boys Middle School Lacrosse League and the Charlottesville-Albemarle Youth Lacrosse Club will sponsor the Nolan Jenkins Preseason LaxMania Youth Tournament. The tournament offer two play in age groups, U-15 (Juniors) and U-13 (Midgets), with at least 2 divisions for each age group. There will be a total of 20 teams for each group.

Each team participating will play at least 4 games, with 20 minute running time halves and a 5 minute half-time. In addition to local teams, the tournament has already received commitments and serious responses from teams in Baltimore, Calvert County, MD, Severna Park, MD, Connecticut, Northern Kentucky, Pennsylvania, North Carolina, Roanoke, VA, Northern Virginia, South Carolina and Utah.

In past years, the BMSLL has held a preseason Jamboree to kick off the start of the season. In conjunction with CAYLC, this tournament will provide an expanded opportunity to prepare the BMSLL teams for their regular season. As a bonus, teams from outside the area to will have an great opportunity to visit Charlottesville and attend the UVa vs. Towson game on March 17th.

The tournament is looking for volunteers and referees. If you are interested, please contact Bob Mattie, bmattiecdsdms@aol.com.
