Lacrosse – The Fastest Game on Two Feet!
Lacrosse was first played by the Indigenous Tribes of North American as early as 1100AD! The Haudenosaunee (Iroquois Nationals) invented the sport of Lacrosse, though they say it is a gift from the Creator.
Lacrosse was first played in Australia in June 1876 in Victoria, but the beginnings of Lacrosse in South Australia can be traced back to 1883 when a meeting was held at the Prince Alfred Hotel on 6 April of that year and the Adelaide Lacrosse Club was formed, however it wasn’t until two years later that first practice was held in the South Park Lands.
Lacrosse appeared as a sport in the 1904 and 1908 Summer Olympic Games, and as a demonstration sport in 1928, 1932 and 1948. World Lacrosse is working hard for a modified version of Lacrosse (6v6) to be included in future Olympic Games, with a vision for potentially Los Angeles in 2028.
The South Australian Lacrosse competition is played from April through to the end of September, with a number of summer indoor competitions occurring along with school clinics and school competitions held by local clubs.
