Getting started

There are few things more rewarding than helping young people pursue their passion. USA Lacrosse has the resources to help you mentor young lacrosse players whether you've played the sport or not.

We work with programs at every level around the country that are aimed at serving the young players that form the foundation of our sport. We'd love to help you improve your knowledge and teaching skills to help put you in a position to best support them.

Let's get started.
