Howard County Recreation and Parks has teamed up with Mid-Atlantic Lacrosse to provide the premier lacrosse tournament event.
- Only Maryland-based clubs are eligible to participate. This helps reduce travel costs that have been incurred by the clubs over the past few years.
- All of the Elite Open games will be played on newly built athletic turf facilities. They are stadium designed facilities with bleachers for fans and college coaches to easily view games. The Open Championship will use the same fields for their Friday games, and then will use adjacent grass fields for Saturday games.
- Each turf field has an operating scoreboard that will be used to display game time and score.
- Each turf field has lights, which allows for night games.
- There is adequate parking at each facility.
- All games will be a full 50 minutes in duration with a running clock.
