A national hub for the study and improvement of health, safety, and performance in lacrosse.
Created in 2016, the Center is devoted to research, education, collaboration, policy development, and best practices guidelines that benefit the safety and wellness of lacrosse players, with a particular focus on youth players.
The dedicated volunteers from our Sports Science & Safety Committee function as an advisory group for the Center and provide safety education leadership for the entire lacrosse community.
