Great stories start with great people. Few sports capture the best in human nature better than the sport of lacrosse. US Lacrosse has thousands of volunteers across the country plus an ever expanding population of players, coaches, officials and fans, each with their own personal story.
Lacrosse is the fastest growing sport in the country and it’s no wonder why so many are attracted to it. The game is action-packed and employs skill sets from hockey, basketball and soccer. Endurance, speed, agility and hand-eye coordination are valued on the field.
As the sport’s national governing body, US Lacrosse changes the face of any given community with an event, a clinic, an equipment grant, or with any of our many other programs and services. Economic impact, charitable contributions, increased opportunities for participation and other great stories on and off the field are commonplace.
