It is our mission, with the aid of local chapters, to help you add this exciting sport to your community. Our guide to starting a team/league is designed to assist you, step-by-step, through the process of establishing a new youth or high school team.
The First Stick Program seeks to break barriers to participation. Benefits include lacrosse equipment (boys’ or girls’ packages), complimentary US Lacrosse membership and coach development resources.
The Soft-Stick Equipment Grant provides a set of soft lacrosse equipment to schools, after-school programs and community-based youth organizations.
A district-wide training opportunity for physical education teachers grades K-12, this program demonstrates how to teach lacrosse in P.E. class and includes free soft-stick equipment for each school.
US Lacrosse seeks to foster a national lacrosse community that encourages understanding, appreciation and acceptance of all within its membership, volunteer base and staff. US Lacrosse believes that broad representation and participation add significant value to the lacrosse experience of each of us, and that these valued experiences are enhanced by embracing underrepresented and underserved communities.
The US Lacrosse Gold Stick Standards of Excellence represent the Best Practices that should be incorporated by quality youth lacrosse programs, whether they are in established, well-resourced areas or serving emerging, less resourced communities.
Whether you need more information or want to talk with us directly, we're here to help.
