Watch the 2018 World Junior Lacrosse Championship


The 2018 IIJL World Junior Lacrosse Championship was hosted at SaskTel Centre in Saskatoon, home of the Saskatchewan Rush of the National Lacrosse League (NLL) from August 8 – August 12, 2018.

Leading this annual tournament committee is co-chair Randy Trobak, president of Saskatoon Box Lacrosse Association and Saskatchewan SWAT junior programs. A legacy plan for the potential profits of the event will provide support for grassroots lacrosse programs across Canada and be utilized by the IIJL to grow the game of box lacrosse at the major junior level internationally and domestically.

World Junior Lacrosse Championship

The world’s best junior-aged lacrosse players will compete for gold on Saskatchewan turf at the 2018 IIJL World Junior Lacrosse Championship. The first two tournaments, held in 2015 and 2016, were both hosted by Six Nations of the Grand River, just outside of Brantford, ON. The 2018 IIJL World Junior Lacrosse Championship will mark the first time the tournament has been held outside of traditional Haudenosaunee territory and the first for a Canadian organizing committee.
