The Class of 2013 was formally inducted into the National Lacrosse Hall of Fame less than two months ago, but US Lacrosse is already looking ahead to next year’s induction…and you can help.
Do you know a player, coach, official or other contributor to the game that deserves Hall of Fame consideration? If so, we encourage you to submit a nomination of behalf of this candidate.
Nomination forms and submission details are available online, but act quickly: The December 15 nomination deadline is quickly approaching. Only candidates with completed nominations by this date will be considered for the class of 2014.
Please try to provide as much detail as possible when submitting a nomination. You may not know all the stats and awards, but the more you can tell us, the better it is for the nominee.
Remember, the mission of the National Lacrosse Hall of Fame is to honor men and women, past and present, who by their deeds as players, coaches, officials and/or contributors, and by the example of their lives, personify the great contribution of the sport of lacrosse to our way of life.
The Hall of Fame’s ballot committees begin meeting in January each year to form the annual men’s and women’s ballots. The two committees review all nominations in order to establish ballots containing the top 12 men's and women's candidates for consideration.
The final candidates are chosen from this ballot and submitted to the US Lacrosse Executive Committee for approval. The annual class of men’s and women’s inductees is then announced to the public over Memorial Day weekend.
Initiated in 1957, the National Lacrosse Hall of Fame currently has 389 members.
