Canadian Lacrosse Foundation

Parents/Players Guide

To assist parents and players in understanding the sport of lacrosse, the Canadian Lacrosse Association has developed the Parents and Players Guide to Lacrosse.  This guide will provide you with general information to help your child get the most out of participating in lacrosse.  As a parent, you will:


1.  understand how this truly 'Canadian game' is played;

2.  grasp the basic skills;

3.  comprehend what your child needs to fully enjoy playing the sport;

4.  find out where you can obtain further information on programs and competitions.


Lacrosse is about having fun.  As a parent you can play a vital role in the development of your child while having fun.  Be positive about your child's participation.  Encourage. Support.  Volunteer.  Listen.  Pay attention to your child's progress.  Be a positive role model.  Remind your child, and yourself, that winning isn't everything.
