Want to Develop Lacrosse in Your Country?
Interested in becoming a lacrosse member nation?
The FIL can marshal a significant number of resources to assist in the development of the sport of lacrosse in your nation.
Here’s what you need to do before we commit those resources:
- Ensure that the sport is being introduced within an educational system or solid organizational structure
- A clear, unified leadership group within the nation is identified
- A Development Questionnaire (below) is completed and submitted by the developing nation
- A development plan is submitted by the developing nation and submitted to the Development Committee (the Development Committee can provide assistance, if necessary, in the preparation of your development plan)
The resources we offer include providing information, DVD’s, equipment grants, clinics, advice and guidance to native individuals and groups interested in establishing lacrosse in their country.
The first step is to submit a completed Development Questionnaire (below). Once we receive the completed form you will be contacted and introduced to the wonderful world of international lacrosse development.
We look forward to hearing from you very soon.
