Welcome to the 7th Annual Northwest Shootout Lacrosse Jamboree!! This event will be held on Saturday & Sunday, April 23 and 24, 2022.


We look forward to enjoying a great weekend of lacrosse with teams from all over. We will be playing from 8:00 AM until 5:00 PM over the course of the weekend. Each team will be guaranteed 4 games over the weekend. There will be lacrosse equipment sales, food and beverage, games, and much more. It is a not to be missed event.

JAMBOREE SCHEDULES will be available as event nears

Coaches - We will post the final schedule update on Friday the 22nd so please be sure to double check each team's schedule. With a jamboree, there is always something which comes up at the last minute and we try our very best to make sure that those changes do not hurt anyone. 


The Jamboree is on. Rain or shine.

The Jamboree staff makes an attempt to provide 3 games with teams that your team does not normally play, due to the complexity of the scheduling process that is not always possible. Some teams may be asked to play a 4th game in order to balance the schedule.

The Jamboree staff tries in general to have a team play in a format of game-on, game-off, game-on, game-off, game-on. Teams may be scheduled with two games off and in a rare exception three games off.

Important Notes for Coaches Attending the 2022 Northwest Shootout:

  • Administration

    • Make sure you arrive at least 30 minutes before your first game

    • Make sure you check in at the Northwest Shootout Headquarters

  • Rules and Officials

    • All games are 48 minutes… 2 – 24 minute running time halves with a 5 minute halftime

      • All games are started and ended together by the on-field Northwest Shootout Game Starters

      • Games delayed in starting will NOT make up time by continuing play after the scheduled end of a half or game.

      • Game time will not be extended nor running time stopped for injuries or Time Outs.

      • Teams get one timeout per game. There are NO Time Outs given in the last 3 minutes of the 2nd half. We are playing “running time”.

      • Players called for Unsportsmanlike fouls and Unnecessary Roughness fouls will sit out the remainder of the half.  Officials will be told to make such an appropriate call in cases of:

        • High Hits

        • Hits to or using a helmet

        • Slash with intention to hurt a player

        • Body Check “legal” or otherwise with the intention to hurt or injure the opponent in the discretion of the official

      • Officials can and will eject a player for more than one of these fouls and/or based on the severity of a single infraction.

      • In the case of a game ejection, the player will not be allowed to play the next game either. This is consistent with the in-season rule of sitting out a game if a player is ejected.

      • For 3/4, the "Hot pass" rule will be in effect. This means a pass is requierd after face off and anytime the ball passes midline.
      • For 3/4, all other personal fouls will have the offending player in the penalty box for 2 minutes (since it is running time). He is replaced on the field and the opponent will start with a fast break set up at center X.
      • For 5/6 and 7/8, the player will serve the penalty.
  • Weather
    • The Jamboree will be played rain, snow or shine.

    • In case of lightning, fields will be cleared until 30 minutes after the storm passes and then the games will resume based on the next full-time slot.  Games that were missed will not be rescheduled.  All efforts will be made to find openings for teams that missed games.



  • NO on street parking or grass area is allowed.  Parking in permitted lots only, vehicles will be ticketed and towed. Follow directional signage to permitted parking areas.  Handicap parking is available in the designated areas.

  • Portable toilets need to be utilized.  Units are plentiful and are strategically located on all fields.  Public urination is a punishable crime and will not be tolerated.








Don't forget the Northwest Shootout Jamboree Lacrosse Retail store this year.  We will have a tent with apparel, equipment, stick stringing and more!

The Food and Beverage Sponsors will be a range of food and beverage offerings.
