Hall of Fame Induction Ceremony
Honoring and celebrating those who have contributed to the game.
This annual celebration, traditionally held in October, is one of the premier USA Lacrosse events of the year. It seeks to honor the men and women, past and present, whose contribution to the game of lacrosse has been deemed worthy of their induction into the National Lacrosse Hall of Fame.
This year's induction ceremony, on Saturday, October 2, 2021, will honor the inductees from the Class of 2020. They are: Rob Bordley, Roy Condon, John Desko, Ericka Leslie, Lisa Griswold Lindley, Laura Harmon Schuman, Joe Seivold, and Amy Appelt Slade.
The Class of 2021 will be celebrated at a date yet to be determined, likely to be in the early part of 2022. The 2021 inductees are: Sheehan Stanwick Burch, Patty Daley, Jenny Levy, Ryan McClay, John Pirro (posthumous), Tony Resch, Kris Snider, and Beth Stone.
Important COVID-19 Event Protocols - Mandatory Action Required
In an effort to ensure the safety of all individuals attending the National Lacrosse Hall of Fame induction ceremony on Oct. 2, USA Lacrosse has made the decision to require proof of COVID-19 vaccination, or a negative COVID-19 test result obtained within 72 hours of the event, for all attendees. In addition, all guests will be required to wear a mask when not eating or drinking.
This decision was made after consultation with medical professionals, and out of an abundance of caution, due to case counts in Baltimore County, which are currently labeled as “substantial” by the CDC. We are asking all attendees to acknowledge their understanding of these requirements by completing this form as soon as possible.
To expedite the check-in process on the night of the ceremony, we strongly encourage you to email a copy of your vaccination card or negative test result to email@example.com prior to Friday, Oct. 1. Copies sent after this date will not be recorded and you will be required to bring your proof to the event. Thank you for your understanding as we look to make this evening safe and memorable for all involved.
To assist Hall of Fame attendees seeking local accommodations, USA Lacrosse has arranged for a special group rate at the Delta Hotels Baltimore Hunt Valley, located just minutes away from the site of this year's Induction ceremony. The special group rate is available for Friday and Saturday, October 1-2, and requires that reservations be made by Sept. 1, 2021.
