About Us

The New Jersey Lacrosse Foundation, a chapter of US Lacrosse the National governing body of lacrosse , offers assistance to youth and high school boys and girls programs throughout the state, promotes the highest level of sportsmanship and healthy competition, and provides a leadership role in virtually every aspect of the game.

We promote, support and serve the lacrosse community in the following ways:

Your membership in US Lacrosse is the lifeline to the success of the NJ Chapter as we are directly funded by the very successful “Chapter Rebate Program”. The program is very simple and allows a certain portion of your yearly US Lacrosse membership dues to go directly back to our chapter. We also rely upon the very generous gifts from corporate and individual sponsors.

The New Jersey Lacrosse Foundation's policy is determined by a board of directors which represent every aspect of the game, and by an Executive Committee which meets bi-monthly to monitor the progress of the Chapter. Youth and High School boys' and girls' divisions under the board address issues specific regarding the play of each version of the game; councils within and/or between each division represent each constituency of the game; and committees throughout the organization focus on specific areas of operation.
