Under-19 World Lacrosse Championships


Under-19 World Lacrosse Championships

The Under-19 World Lacrosse Championships (U-19's) are held separately for men and women about every 4 years to find the world champions for the under-19 age group in lacrosse. The men are sanctioned by the International Lacrosse Federation (ILF) and the women are sanctioned by the International Federation of Women's Lacrosse Associations (IFWLA). They were first held for men in 1988 and first held for women in 1995. They have only been held in the same year twice and both times in the same country, however the 2003 U-19's was the first championship held jointly with the ILF and IFWLA. The United States has won the ILF U-19's every single year it has been held and has won the IFWLA U-19's for the past two events.

The 2008 men's championship was held in July 2008 in Coquitlam, British Columbia, and was won once again by the United States. The next championship for women will be held in 2011. The 2011 women's U-19 championship has been tentatively awarded to Göttingen, Germany
