Lacrosse is known as the oldest sport in North America with its roots from the Native American Indians, lacrosse has rapidly become the fastest growing sport in the United States. Traditionally popular in the Northeast, especially in Baltimore, Boston and New York, it is now gaining ground in California and the Northwest.
At the high school level, no other sport has grown faster over the last 10 years. The NCAA has more than 500 college club programs, including nearly 200 women’s teams competing at the US Lacrosse Intercollegiate Association level. This year, ELC High School Boys Lacrosse is celebrating its 9th season.
