BALTIMORE, MARYLAND—The world of international lacrosse expanded in January as two regions—one encompassing the Caribbean, Central and South America and the other representing Africa—began formation of their continental federations.

The actions came at the inaugural continental federation development meeting of the Federation of International Lacrosse (FIL), held as part of FIL’s winter board meeting during the US Lacrosse Convention on January 19. Representatives from 14 member nations attended the meeting as well as representatives from the two existing continental federations, the Asia-Pacific Lacrosse Union and the European Lacrosse Federation.

Significant progress was made to begin the development of the South American and African federations. The attendees from the respective continents adopted their official names-the Pan-American Lacrosse Association and the African Association of Lacrosse-and began the task of forming the federations and their respective constitutions. The primary purpose of the continental federations will be to organize championships and to develop lacrosse in their territories.
