National Lacrosse Participation Tops 825,000 in 2016

SPARKS, Md. — National participation topped 825,000 players on organized teams in 2016, setting a new record for participation.

Since US Lacrosse first surveyed national lacrosse participation in 2001, the number of players has grown from just over 250,000 to the current total of 826,023, an increase of over 225 percent over a 15-year timeframe.

MILESTONE MOMENTS IN 2016

•  Participation reached a record level of more than 825,000 participants

•  The number of male participants went over a half a million for the first time ever.

•  Illinois became the 21st state with its state high school association to adopt lacrosse as a full-championship sport.

•  The Lacrosse Sports Network, a 24-hour internet network, launched operations, giving the sport unprecedented coverage.

•  The United Women’s Lacrosse League, the first women’s professional lacrosse league for the sport, played its inaugural season with four franchises.

•  Hampton University played its first varsity game, becoming the first historically black college and university (HBCU) to sponsor Division I men’s lacrosse since Morgan State in 1981.

•  Both professional men’s lacrosse leagues expanded to Georgia, with the Atlanta Blaze in Major League Lacrosse and the Georgia Swarm in the National Lacrosse League.

To read the full report, please click here.

The primary source of data for this report is provided by the 67 US Lacrosse regional chapters. Each chapter reports detailed participation at the youth level, and significant data is also obtained from US Lacrosse membership records, the National Collegiate Athletic Association, the National Federation of State High School Associations and LaxPower.com.

On a side note to the article above, I checked the USA Hockey website and for 2014-15 season there were 533,172 registered hockey players, 55,568 coaches, and 23,186 officials for a total of 611,926 registered participants, a total increase of 13,085 participants from the 2013-14 season.  Lacrosse has 268,872 more PLAYERS than hockey on a nationwide scale and is pulling away with growth as hockey recovered a little from recent losses, we just need to get the rest of the area up to speed about lacrosse now!
