Celebrate the Sport!
USA Lacrosse is excited to celebrate the sport of lacrosse this fall from Nov. 5-13, 2022. The second annual National Celebrate Lacrosse Week will bring the lacrosse community together virtually and in person to help showcase this special game.
Part of this initiative is to make the sport of lacrosse more welcoming, diverse and inclusive. We welcome all individuals from every walk of life to come and experience a sport that has so much opportunity for all youth.
A key component of National Celebrate Lacrosse Week will be free Pick Up & Play clinics for children, ages 6-14, that will give these youth players a chance to try the sport and connect with local lacrosse organizations that provide opportunities to further their exploration of lacrosse. The application process for local lacrosse organizations interested in becoming a host site is now available.
The deadline for applications has passed.
