The Rocky Mountain Lacrosse League (RMLL) is the name of the box lacrosse leagues in Alberta with one team in Saskatchewan and, as of 2011, one in Manitoba. It is sanctioned by the Alberta Lacrosse Association. RMLL organizes all senior and junior play in the province. The league is broken into several divisions: Senior B, Senior C, Junior A, Junior B, Tier II and Tier III. Junior Ladies and Senior Ladies divisions were added in 2004 and 2011, respectively.

The RMLL is experiencing rapid growth as the popularity of box lacrosse increases, spurred on by the expansion of the National Lacrosse League to Calgary in 2001 and Edmonton in 2005. In 2002, 18 teams played in the RMLL at all levels. That number grew to 37 in 2005, then 59 in 2006.[1] An all-time high 64 teams competed in 2016.

National championships[edit]

The RMLL is guaranteed at least one berth in each of the following national championship tournaments. Championship teams from Alberta are listed:
