VIRGINIA BEACH, Va. - The Princess Anne Sports Complex (PAAC) and Virginia Beach Sportsplex will be hosting the 2020 All-America National Championships this fall.

“The All-America Lacrosse event is the most prestigious summer lacrosse event every single summer," Lee Corrigan, president of Corrigan Sports Enterprises, said.
"One of the things that we learned is that kids are dying to play, boys and girls all over the country.”

The event, hosted by Corrigan Sports Enterprises (CSE), is first hosting "Super Regional Events" for boys and girls lacrosse, and the winners advance to the championships. The organization chose to scale down the size of its event by hosting "Super Regional Events" first to ensure state, national and local COVID-19 guidelines were being followed.

The championships will give the athletes college exposure and, while college programs are unable to attend in-person, footage will be sent to all college coaches.

“This event historically has been the number one recruiting event for the summer for college coaches," Corrigan said. "A lot of college coaches can't be out here for COVID restrictions and blackout windows for NCAA recruiting, so what they do is they'll be watching on film and we provide that film free to the college coaches."

The All-America National Championships will take place October 16–18.
