2022 Jamboree

What is the SCLA Jamboree?

  • Every year we start the season with a Jamboree tournament which is our “pre-season”.

Are these preseason games or regular season games?

  • This is a pre-season tournament. The games results do NOT count towards league standings.

If the games do not count towards regular season, why do we keep score and record score sheets?

  • One of the goals of the Jamboree is to allow coaches and league officials to assess which division their team will be most competitive to play (Stars or Stripes). Keeping score helps all of us review the results both by watching games as well as reviewing scores.

How many games will my team play?

  • Each team will play 2-3 games, depending on their age group division.

Remember...this is recreational youth sports. We are not club lacrosse.

  • All players play and parents cheer.
  • Please be respectful and show sportsmanship of and off the field to all players, spectators, referees and volunteers.
  • The primary mission of the SCLA is to provide an opportunity for boys and girls to learn and play competitive lacrosse in an environment in which athletes learn the value of teamwork and balanced competition.

Who is SCLA?

  • Southern California Lacrosse Association (SCLA) is one of the largest youth lacrosse organizations in Southern California serving thousands of players and families to provide an opportunity for boys and girls to learn and play competitive lacrosse in an environment in which athletes learn the value of teamwork and balanced competition.
