At USA Lacrosse, we celebrate that anyone from anywhere should be able to play lacrosse and compete.

We’ve compiled and developed resources to help parents, players, and leaders positively connect with the lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender, and queer (LGBTQ+) community in lacrosse. Our hope is that with this information and insight in hand, you’ll have the tools necessary to support the LGBTQ+ community in a meaningful and productive way.

"I think it’s awesome that when people look at lacrosse, they will see all kinds of people.”

LGBTQ+ Inclusion Scholarship

The USA Lacrosse LGBTQ+ Inclusion Scholarship, to be awarded again in 2024, provides financial support and hope to two student-athletes who demonstrate positive sensitivity to and involvement in LGBTQ+ issues. These scholarships are designed to promote academic excellence and increased visibility of talented LGBTQ+ students in lacrosse.  We look forward to receiving and reviewing your applications in 2024.
