The event showcases some of the top middle school and high school-aged boys lacrosse players from the United States and Canada as well as the top Native Americans.

Among the nearly 30 teams in the tournament include host Champion, Blaze Rochester, Team Buffalo, Edge Ontario, Grand River Ironmen, Hamburg, Hill Academy, Iroquois Western Door, Performax, Pittsburgh Elite, Rhino Lacrosse and Tribe Lacrosse.

The middle-school division takes center stage Saturday. The junior varsity and varsity showcases are Sunday. Each team is guaranteed to play at least once in New Era Field.
