Lacrosse teaches lessons and helps players grow and achieve all through their lives:
As a youth player, you learn the basics of lacrosse, enjoy the rewards of playing competitively with a team, and challenging yourself physically and mentally. Participating in Team Sports for Middle School / Junior School players provides wonderful social and emotional growth opportunities.
At the High School / Senior School level, involvement in sports like Lacrosse helps grow responsibility, accountability, and teamwork. High school players also reap the benefits socially and emotionally from being part of a team. In countries where lacrosse is popular, like the United States, Great Britain and Japan, players can play in highly competitive leagues and tournaments that expand their horizons and build their skills, and potentially pave the way for success in college.
In College/University many schools field lacrosse teams. In the United States there are almost 400 men’s & 500+ women’s college lacrosse teams at several levels of competition. For some talented players, lacrosse can provide scholarship opportunities or increase their chances of being accepted to a school. Collegiate lacrosse is also a developing ground for professional lacrosse. At this level too, lacrosse provides structure, discipline, growth opportunities, and social networks.
At the Professional Level, support continues to grow. In the US, Premier Lacrosse League provides professional playing opportunities for elite men and inspires young players.
Many collegiate or professional players go on to play for local leagues and coach kids leagues, bringing their experience full circle.
