Lacrosse Australia Foundation
We invest in lacrosse. Now you can too.
The LAF is excited to launch their inaugural fundraising campaign ImpactLAX
An annual campaign in which we seek 100 lacrosse enthusiasts to donate $1000 toward the development of the game we love in Australia. Securing the first 10 donors before the program even launched has given us confidence, that while this is a new concept to Lacrosse in Australia, those that have a passion for the game, those that have derived massive benefit from being involved in the game through the years understand the need for and will embrace this change by making sure they are on the 100 people to donate.
Together we can Grow the Game.

The Lacrosse Australia Foundation has made it possible for Alan Frost (Victoria) to Fly and stay in Brisbane to deliver Men’s Lacrosse Referee training to the QLA officials on the 23rd-24th March 2019. The generosity of this financial assistance will enable the growth of Men’s Lacrosse in Queensland through the support and education of their Lacrosse officials.

The LAF’s support for Canberra Lacrosse Club is sincerely appreciated … they have a good bunch of ambitious people there, setting a great example for others in new areas to follow in terms of building up an “isolated” program. Luke Oswald.
