Experience lacrosse in its glory with a visit to the US Lacrosse National Headquarters at the crest of the hill on the corner of York Road and Loveton Circle in Sparks, Maryland.  Our 12-acre campus includes the US Lacrosse offices, the National Lacrosse Hall of Fame and Museum, and MedStar Health Sports Medicine and Performance Center in the three-story IWLCA Building. Catch a game at Tierney Field - designed with a nod to tradition with a grassy knoll and intimate stadium seating - sits just outside the front door. A stroll along the Chris Sailer trail around the stadium takes you past the 9/11 Memorial Garden and a native plants meadow.

The complex opened to the public on September 9-11, 2016, after successfully completing a $15 million capital campaign funded entirely by private donations.
