University Lacrosse (ULAX) operates a network of men's, women's and high school lacrosse leagues throughout the United States and Canada. ULAX organizes leagues within twenty-eight cities year round. The company was founded in 2005.
League Overview and Ranking System
Each location operates for seven weeks within the spring, summer, fall, and winter. Certain locations are active multiple times throughout the year. During that time teams play each other in a predefined schedule. Within each city teams are given a 5-6 game regular season, followed by a 1-2 week playoff tournament. The league's regular season standings are based on a point system. Two points are awarded for a win, one point for losing, and zero points for a loss in regulation or overtime. Teams with the same record are then ranked based on Goals For / Goals Against differential and if that's the same the team with more Goals For assumes the higher ranking.
At the end of the regular season, teams are seeded based on the point system. From there a single elimination playoff tournament is held with the winner being crowned the city champion. Within the current cities, the top twenty-five teams and players are ranked on our National Leaderboard and we host regional lacrosse tournaments where the top teams are invited to play.
University Lacrosse - Mission Statement
We strive to cultivate a safe league experience that combines both competition and camaraderie. Our commitment is to the athletes in our leagues and our goal is to provide the best possible experience.
University Lacrosse was founded to help provide an outlet for the game and we are equally committed to supporting the growth of lacrosse. ULAX supports several non-profits, who are helping to bring the game to low-income and less privileged communities.
Lacrosse can help teach and instruct several skills and life disciplines that lead to a successful work ethic. With the help of our non-profit partners, ULAX provides volunteer coaching, cash sponsorships, and believes firmly in giving back to the organizations who are dedicated to growing the game.
