introduction of men’s lacrosse in Southern California is generally
traced back to the founding of the California Lacrosse Association in
1959. The first women’s program was CSU-Long Beach in 1977. Since that
time the sport has expanded to the youth, high school, college, club and
professional levels. Lacrosse is currently a sanctioned sport in the CIF-Southern Section as well as the CIF-City Section. For the CIF-SS it still needs more teams to meet the playoff rule. In working with the CIF-SS and CIF-City Section US Lacrosse in association with a member school put on a end of the year tournament for qualified teams.
