Each team is guaranteed to play four games, with the bracket winners advancing to single-elimination competition. One team will be awarded the National High School Champion on the final day of action.

More than 50 college coaches, representing over 30 schools (some schools are bringing more than one coach) will attend the High School National Championship. The college coaches will select eight teams of All-Stars from the tournament. These athletes/teams will then compete against each other in the High School All-American Lacrosse Games in July.
