Official US Lacrosse Inclusion Statement

Since its inception in 1998, US Lacrosse has supported and led efforts to expand the sport to underserved and underrepresented communities throughout the country. Among a number of initiatives, dozens of US Lacrosse financial and program grants are awarded annually to introduce the sport to new participants and audiences.

The 2013-2015 US Lacrosse Strategic Plan identifies inclusion as one of the organization's top priorities, and within that framework, the organization will continue to strengthen the resources it devotes to increasing access to the sport.  Recently, US Lacrosse joined with other like-minded organizations to form the Urban Lacrosse Alliance, which hopes to expand urban lacrosse opportunities through shared strategies.
