Lacrosse is one of the fastest growing team sports in the United States.

Youth participation in the sport has grown over 500 percent since 1999 to nearly 250,000. No sport has grown faster at the high school level over the last 10 years and there are now an estimated 200,000 high school players. Lacrosse is also the fastest-growing sport over the last six years at the NCAA level. There are more than 500 college club programs, including nearly 200 women’s teams that compete at the US Lacrosse Intercollegiate Associates level.

A combination of basketball, soccer and hockey, lacrosse is an exhilarating sport, fast-paced and full of action. Considered to be America’s first sport, lacrosse was born of the North American Indian, christened by the French, and adapted and raised by the Canadians.
