Montreal Winter Classic 2018 – Box Lacrosse Invitational

Montreal Winter Classic

The Montreal Winter Classic was a huge success!  You can see the results of the tournament by clicking here!

Welcome to the first inaugural Montreal Winter Classic! This event will be taking place January 20-21st, 2018.  It seemed fitting to host a box lacrosse tournament where Dr.George Beers was from and where he wrote the first official modern rules of the game.  Even before Dr.Beers lacrosse games have been played for hundreds and thousands of years.
