Florida will form and field a state-wide Boy's All-American team and a Girl's All-American team. These teams will be entered into the tournament where they will compete against invited Haudenoshaunee and  Canadian teams, respectively. Other All-American teams from across the United States will also be invited to participate in the tournament.

The event will consist of three individual components:

  1. A full-field, 10-v-10 American-style lacrosse championship competition;
  2. A small-sided, 6-v-6 (Sixes) Olympic-style lacrosse championship competition;
  3. Coaching sessions delivered by college coaches.


  1. Regions participate in the tournament by submitting teams that represent a different geographic area in the United States (e.g., Northeast, Mid-Atlantic, Midwest, Southwest, West Coast, Pacific Northwest, and Southeast excluding Florida).
  2. Each region will submit two Boys and two Girls teams to participate in the event. One team consists of a full-field squad of no more than 20 players that will compete in the “National” Division.

All players have been selected by their area USA Lacrosse selection committees as All-American (and Academic and Honorable Mention) players and therefore have demonstrated exceptional performance during their recent season.

Riffing off the 2010 movie, "Scott Pilgrim vs. the World" our event is designed to evoke the zany action of the comedy film directed by Edgar Wright, and based on the graphic novel series "Scott Pilgrim" by Bryan Lee O'Malley.

In the film, Scott Pilgrim falls in love with an American delivery girl named Ramona Flowers and learns that in order to date her, he must defeat her seven evil exes in battles that are part video game, part kung-fu movie.

Each of Ramona's exes has unique powers and characteristics, and Scott must figure out how to defeat each one, while dealing with the struggles of his own life, his band, and the complex nature of his relationship with Ramona. The movie is known for its unique storytelling style, combining elements of video game culture, comic book style visuals, and indie rock music, reflecting the style and tone of the original graphic novel series. The film also explores themes of self-identity, growth, and taking responsibility for one's actions, all wrapped up in its action-packed, comedic, and stylized narrative.
