Woodbury United Lacrosse is a non-profit 501(c)3 charitable organization. The name for our tournament reflects our community’s united athletic associations and their team colors. East Ridge is “Black” while Woodbury is “Blue”. Since the inception of our Black & Blue Tournament in 2011, this annual fund raising event for our boys & girls lacrosse programs has grown from 20-teams to as many as 90-teams in 2015! The size of our event and the celebrated facilities at Bielenberg Sports Center in Woodbury, MN, makes Black & Blue the most prestigious youth lacrosse tournament in Minnesota! We expect over 1,300 players and a 3-day total attendance exceeding 5,000 people! Those in attendance are active families with boy and girl participants between the ages of 6 - 15.
Through corporate sponsorships, fundraising and donations, the goal of WULAX is to:
Woodbury United is a family and this week we received news that one of our own is battling cancer. U15A Middie Tyler Johnson was diagnosed on June 11th with Stage 3 Nodular Lymphocyte Predominant Hodgkin's Lymphoma, a rare form of Hodgkin's Lymphoma cancer. Friends and family have set up a Go Fund Me account to help Tyler’s parents with the financial part of Ty’s journey and a Caring bridge page to keep us all updated on his progress.

We have #9 helmet stickers and purple shirts (support color for Hodgkin's Lymphoma) that will be available soon. Its our hope that we can pull together as a team to support Tyler and help him beat cancer!
