Youth players from coast to coast are cradling sticks for the first time and discovering a passion that lasts a lifetime. As the national governing body of lacrosse, US Lacrosse is challenged to rise to meet the needs of our sport's explosive growth. Our sport requires an investment in leadership, safety and opportunity and as players, parents, coaches, officials and fans, we must answer this call. The time is now for The National Campaign for Lacrosse.

This Is Your Sport

As the sport’s national governing body, US Lacrosse strives to improve and enhance the lacrosse experience for all. We understand how the gifts of sport—sportsmanship, confidence, community and the realization of one’s true potential—come to life through lacrosse. We know that one coach, one official, one teammate or one moment can make a difference that lasts a lifetime. We believe that our continued investment in a positive lacrosse experience will change lives for the better.

The $15 million National Campaign for Lacrosse will strengthen national leadership and expand resources required to best position lacrosse for healthy, sustained and responsible growth. Every dollar invested in the National Campaign for Lacrosse is a dollar invested in fortifying the future of the sport.

A National Community

Investing in Leadership: $13 Millon

Since its inception in 1998, US Lacrosse has been a catalyst for unprecedented growth in our sport. The demand for national leadership and resource has increased substantially and can no longer be provided effectively and efficiently within the walls of our current headquarters.

Our new National Lacrosse Center will be an incubator for the sport’s continued positive growth and development, positioning US Lacrosse to engage and deliver resources to lacrosse constituencies nationwide.

An Inclusive Environment
