Hotel Rooms:
Maineiax is proud to announce a partnership with PSE Housing as the official hotel coordinator for all Mainiax events. Pse Housing has secured room blocks for all of the out of town teams. Please use the booking link to choose your hotel: https://pse.tournamenthotels.com/pse/Event/3058

Please email jstory@tournamenthotels.com if you have any questions regarding travel and accommodations. Please do not contact hotels directly as team reservations must be made via the Pse Housing website. Team reservations will not be accepted if calling the hotel directly.

Food:
We suggest having players and fans bring snacks and meals if they don’t want to go off site to purchase food. There are a lot of great food choices in town at all locations if you want to go off site in between games. 

Fine Design:
Stop by the Fine Design gear tent at the USM and St. Joe’s locations to purchase swag and tournament tee shirts! If you’re playing at Gorham Sports Complex, swing by USM to purchase your gear as it’s only a 5 minute drive. 

Tentville/Headquarters:
We welcome team tents near fields. Club/team reps do not have to check-in at Headquarters. 

Trainer:
There will be a trainer at each location near the turf field on site. Please arrive early before your first game. 

Dogs:
Dogs are allowed on leash only and not allowed on any athletic field area (including fenced in fields, any field lined, or any area that is used for organized activities).

Rules:
Games will be 45 minutes each (22 minute halves) and a 1-minute halftime. There will be no time in between games so all players/teams should exit the field immediately at the conclusion of their game so the next one can begin. Teams should be ready to start their games as the previous game is ending. There are no playoffs for this tournament. All games will be played following the 2020 US Lacrosse rules, found here: http://www.uslacrosse.org/rules. These rules include checking at all ages.

Social Media:
Follow us on Instagram @maineiaxlacrosse or Facebook (www.facebook.com/maineiaxlacrosse) for all the latest up to date information, news, photos, etc. We will also be having contests and giveaways throughout the day!

Weather:
We are hoping for sun, but as we can’t control the weather, we will play until it becomes a safety concern or if there is thunder or lightning. In these circumstances, all participants and spectators will be asked to make their way back to their cars. We will not resume play for 30 minutes after the last sign of thunder or lightning. In the case that delays occur, games will not pause nor be made up and could be lost due to any severe weather, although we will an attempt to make up a game if possible at the end of the day, if time and light allows it.

College Coaches:
We welcome any college coach to attend to watch players. Please note this is not a recruiting tournament but coaches may watch games. Please click here to register.
