More Information on Lacrosse:
- Lacrosse is the indigenous sport of the Native American people, and was played prior to the arrival of Christopher Columbus by the ancestors of the Arawak Indians – the Iroquois that lived along the Canadian – USA border.
Lacrosse is currently the fastest growing sport in the USA and Canada. It is also the fastest growing NCAA Scholarship sport at American Universities, however, these are very, very competitive and limited opportunities.
- The Federation of International Lacrosse is the world wide governing body of lacrosse. There are over 50 member countries around the world, and Jamaica is one of them! The Jamaica national team is eligible to play in FIL World Cup events and will begin to travel to international events in the coming years.
- The FIL is working hard to have lacrosse added to the summer Olympics.
