It is the US Lacrosse mission, with the aid of local US Lacrosse chapters, to help you add this exciting sport to your community. Sustaining a lacrosse program will prove to be important and valuable; however, we realize it requires a great deal of your commitment and resources. The US Lacrosse New Start Program offers guidance and resources to help new teams get off to the right start. Over 2,500 new teams have received start-up assistance through this program since 2004.
