SPARKS, Md. – US Lacrosse today announced the 2019 lineup of 57 tournaments in 21 states that will serve as qualifiers for the July 2020 US Lacrosse Nationals.

Tourney Machine, official scoring system of the US Lacrosse National Qualifiers, has begun accepting registrations for “Tourney Team IDs” — unique identification numbers used to track the points teams earn for their performances in qualifiers.

Qualifiers that take place through July 2019 will award points towards a berth in the 2020 Nationals to 13U and 12U teams. Qualifiers scheduled for this fall will award Nationals points to 14U and 13U teams, as players matriculate through their respective program. The 2020 US Lacrosse Nationals will welcome boys’ and girls’ teams in the 14U and 13U divisions.

“Based on feedback from several hundred youth teams that participated in Nationals qualifiers last year, we made several improvements to the process that will help keep players together each season and help teams plan their tournament schedule accordingly,” JP Fischer, sanctioning manager at US Lacrosse, said.

Fifteen of the leading event owner-operators in the country administer the US Lacrosse National Qualifiers, all of which meet the US Lacrosse sanctioned tournament standards and will use Tourney Machine to tabulate results. The majority of qualifiers take place in June and July, and many have space available.

Coaches or team leaders should create their Tourney Machine accounts and register for each of their teams’ Tourney Team IDs. Note that a coach may create more than one Tourney Team ID in his/her account.

Qualification standings for the 2020 Nationals will be updated automatically following each qualifier. The breakdown of how points are earned is here.

Questions about Tourney Team IDs may be directed to Fischer.
