The PLA, the local chapter of US Lacrosse, supports the game of lacrosse at all levels in Eastern Pennsylvania and maintains the Pennsylvania Lacrosse Hall of Fame to recognize the great players and contributors to the game in our area.

Representatives from lacrosse constituencies in the region — youth, high school, college and club lacrosse coaches, referees, summer league organizers, parents and promoters, civic association volunteers – work through the PLA throughout the year to organize or sponsor youth clinics, coaching seminars, fundraising efforts, tournaments and other activities to further the PLA’s mission and particularly its New Start Program initiatives.

PLA New Start Program volunteers have worked diligently over the years to seed and cultivate youth, middle school and high school programs and activities in the Delaware Valley, Central Pennsylvania, the Lehigh Valley and, more recently, Berks County, Northeastern Pennsylvania and the City of Philadelphia.  The number of youth programs and high schools fielding interscholastic lacrosse teams continues to grow, and the growth of the game at all levels in our Chapter region not only reflects the dedicated contributions of hundreds of lacrosse enthusiasts but represents, in part, the evolution of a process set in motion and supported by the PLA and US Lacrosse.

We appreciate your participation in the 2016 PLA Golf Classic and the contributions you have made to help support the great game of lacrosse in our region.  We hope you have fun and remember to join us again next year for another great event.
