Team Selection and Placement
The U.S. is separated into 12 regions (click on map at right). Each region is allowed a specific number of teams based on youth participation and US Lacrosse membership within that region (example: Lower Atlantic is allowed 6 boys teams and 4 girls teams based on youth participation and US Lacrosse membership among VA, DC, NC, SC, and WV). Four automatic bids are given to the previous year's top three finishers and the sportsmanship award winner.
Teams will be accepted on a first-come, first-paid basis until the slots are full with-in that region. All teams that register for a region once that region is full will be placed on a general waiting list in order of time/day stamp. Once registration is closed (March 8th), if there are open slots in regions, teams will be selected in order of time/day stamp from the waiting list. This means that a team from the Mid-Atlantic region, who is on the waiting list, could be placed in the Mountain/Northwest Region if there is an open slot. This will continue until the maximum amount of teams is reached (48 boys/32 girls).
Note: All teams remaining on the waiting list after all slots are filled will receive a full refund.
Players and coaches will need to complete the following forms to participate. Forms are due by June 15.
• GIRLS' Team Commitment Form
• GIRLS' Medical Waiver
• GIRLS' Coaches Form
• BOYS' Team Commitment Form
• BOYS' Medical Waiver
• BOYS' Coaches Form
• Proof of Age (acceptable proof of age documents: Birth Certificate, Passport, State ID, or School ID if birth date is included)
Our refund policy is designed to minimize the financial impact on the event and its participating teams in case a team already selected for the event drops out. If a team drops out of the event before March 15, 2010, 50% ($675) of the team's registration fee will be refunded. If the team drops out after March 15, 2010, the registration fee is non-refundable. Teams that are not selected from the waiting list by March 8, 2010 (the official close of registration date) will receive a full refund of their team registration fee.

Player may not be 15 years of age on or before December 31, 2009 to be eligible for the 2010 US Lacrosse U15 National Championship. Accordingly, players that turn 15 after December 31, 2009 are eligible. (To participate, players must turn 15 years or younger in the 2010 competition year. If a player turns 16 in 2010, he/she is not eligible).
US Lacrosse recognizes that this age definition does not match what is currently in the 2009 and 2010 NHFS and US Lacrosse rule books. The disqualifier for high school competition used at the US Lacrosse U-15 Youth Festival was purposely omitted from the participation requirements for this event to allow for broader participation.
