Have you been to the FIL website lately? Have you seen their 2015 Guide to International Lacrosse? If anyone in Jamaica is questioning the legitimacy of lacrosse as a major, up and coming international sport, then show them this document. Lacrosse is charging hard towards the goal of being in the Summer Olympics… and when that happens, we will be there, ready to JAMINATE! Click here for the link to this fascinating and informative document.
This is the original Jamaica Lacrosse Summer Camp, out of which we are working to launch the Founder’s League High School initiative in the next year. This camp is staffed by the JLA with support from players and coaches primarily from the USA. Equipment is provided on loan from the JLA and given to committed campers to keep at the end of the camp. Do not be nervous if you have never played lacrosse before. The game will be taught in a positive and encouraging environment. Water and light refreshments are provided along with music, games, prizes, contests, awards and lots of fun! Once you sign up via the link below you will be added to our camper email list and will be send reminders as well as a permission slip to have your parents complete. Paper registration will also be available via the security stand at the front entrance to St. George’s throughout the month of June.

This program does not accept online registration. You must register in person at Dupont Primary School. This camp is limited to 30 participants, ages 10-13. Email JamaicaLacrosse@gmail.com for more information.
This camp will be run in a similar format to the Founder’s Camp which is held in the summer. This camp is held over the Holiday break from school (Late December into early January).
The short term goal for the Jamaica Lacrosse Association is to have a small group of teams from various Kingston area high schools form the Founder’s League in the spring of 2016 to initiate the first real fully fledged HS lacrosse season even in Jamaica (HS boys & girls).
