Lacrosse is the fastest-growing team sport in the country.
Lacrosse combines some of the best aspects of other sports (basketball, soccer, etc) into one sport, allowing players of all sizes and skill sets to contribute. The fundamental concepts of men's and women's lacrosse are the same - players try to score goals by using a stick to shoot a ball into the goal. However, there are rule differences between men's and women's lacrosse that make each game unique.
US Lacrosse is the national governing body for men's and women's lacrosse, and is an excellent resource for learning more about the game. Be sure to check out their Guidebooks for Youth Rules and Best Practices forBoysandGirlsand their website for additional information via the links. In order to register with Edmond Lacrosse Club, all players must have a current membership with US Lacrosse. A portion of the membership cost is donated to our Local Chapter and benefits the growth of lacrosse in our area.
A Brief History of Edmond Lacrosse Club
In the spring of 2006, the City of Edmond Parks and Recreation department established the boys and girls lacrosse program in the City of Edmond. Since its inception, the program has shown substantial growth; with an overall increase in player participation of 231%. As a result of this growth, in the spring of 2008, a group of parents and volunteers incorporated as a non-profit Oklahoma corporation to assist Edmond Parks and Recreation with promotion of the program to include marketing, fund raising, and scholarships. In June of 2009, Edmond Parks and Recreation transferred primary operational responsibility of the lacrosse program to the Edmond Lacrosse Club, Inc.
