The Board of US Lacrosse established the Sports Science & Safety Committee to function as an advisory group to the leadership and to the various committees of US Lacrosse, as well as to serve as a source of lacrosse sport safety education for the entire lacrosse community.
The US Lacrosse Sports Science and Safety Committee was formed in 1999. The committee was formed to take a closer look at injury prevention and sports medicine issues involved with the game of lacrosse. The committee meets three times a year in Baltimore at the US Lacrosse headquarters plus selected committee members conduct informative presentations at the annual US Lacrosse National Convention in January. The committee also composes Position Statements on where the committee stands on important lacrosse safety issues.
The goal of this committee is to utilize the existing sports medicine literature, and to grow the body of lacrosse safety knowledge in order to objectively advise US Lacrosse and the lacrosse community on factors that may enhance the safety and quality of experience in the sport of lacrosse at all levels.
