Tournaments and Jamborees

There are a few year -end tournaments that Canton Lacrosse Club Boys Program participates in.  The Canton Lacrosse Club pays all entry fees for our tournaments, there are no additional costs to the families.

MRK (Melissa Rose Kradin foundation) Canton Tournament

This tournament is to benefit the Melissa Rose Kradin foundation.  Rick and Audrey Kradin of Canton created the foundation in memory of their daughter, Melissa Rose, who passed away in 1998 at the age of 12 after a two-year battle with a malignant brain tumor.  The foundation works together with the Cam Neely Foundation to fund research activities to advance the treatment of childhood cancers and to provide support to the families of critically ill children. Tournament entry fees go to the foundation, additional donations are appreciated.

When is the MRK Canton tournament?
This is a weekend long tournament usually played on the second weekend of June.  It is a competitive format with some teams playing Friday night and all teams playing on Saturday at either Canton High School or Windsor Woods fields. All semi-final and final games are played on Sunday at Canton High School.  Each team will play between four and six games. During the tournament, there are many fun raffle items and concessions. The final championship game and awards presentation is held Sunday afternoon. Raffle winners are also announced at that time.

Who can play and how are the teams formed?
This is an optional tournament for U11, U13 and U15 players from Canton and the surrounding towns.

What else is required for the tournament’s success?

Your help! 

1.    Each Canton team donates a raffle basket/items, coordinated by a team parent volunteer. Collections for the baskets are usually taken at the end of the regular season games.

2.    Additional raffle item donations are welcomed and appreciated.

3.     Concessions, grill, and raffles are open all day Saturday (at both fields) and Sunday (at Canton High School) and rely on the help of many parent volunteers.  Let your child’s coach know how you can help.


MBYLL Jamboree
Organized by the MBYLL, the year end Jamboree is said to be the largest lacrosse event in the nation and is held on what used to be the grounds of Fort Devens which is west of Boston on Route 2.  Last year there were over 350 teams each playing 3 games over a span of four days.

When is the Jamboree?
While the jamboree spans four days, each town only plays on one of them. Canton generally plays on the third Sunday of June

What is the format?
Each team will play three short games with breaks in between.  The tournament is for fun, there are no playoffs or champions declared.

Who can play and how are the teams formed?
This is an optional tournament for U11, U13 and U15 players. Depending on interest level each year, we may send all of our teams at an age group or combine players into a smaller number of teams.  Information on how to sign up will be communicated during the spring season.
