With a rich history of box lacrosse in the Czech Republic, the Czech Lacrosse Union came in 2017 with the idea to start an international competition in this age category. We truly believe that this historical moment became the beginning of new tradition that young teams from as many possible European countries will regularly attend this competition.
The tournament is organized by the Czech Lacrosse Union together with the lacrosse team TJ Malešice, one of the founders of lacrosse in the Czech Republic and one of the most successful teams in the Czech lacrosse history.
The tournament will be held at TJ Malešice arena where the first box lacrosse game was played more than thirty years ago. This legendary place was newly refurbished with new turf, boards with plexiglass around the field and new lightings in 2017.
