Best of Lax: Vote to Decide End-of-Year Award Winners


Following a one-year hiatus — no one needed a reminder of how much 2020 sucked — we were stoked to put together our latest year-in-review edition.

Over 18 pages in the December edition of USA Lacrosse Magazine, we encapsulated the last 365 days in lacrosse with stories of the year, photos of the year and Best of Lax finalists in select categories. There is so much to celebrate, and we need your help to celebrate it all.

Beginning Wednesday, Dec. 1, you can vote on Twitter to determine winners in 15 #BestOfLax categories. We’ll reveal a new category and new poll every weekday through Tuesday, Dec. 21. You’ll have 24 hours to gather your friends and vote for your favorite player, team, personality and more. The nominees might even get in on the action, too.

Follow all month long at USALaxMagazine.com and on social media (@USALacrosseMag) as we bid farewell to 2021.

Check out the categories below, along with the date each poll will go live on Twitter. We’ll reveal the nominees on the day of each respective poll.
