US Lacrosse Releases 2011 Participation Survey

More than 680,000 players participated in lacrosse on organized teams in 2011, according to the 2011 US Lacrosse Participation Survey, released today. The figure resulted from an increase of roughly 60,000 players from 2010, the largest one-year increase in the total number of players since US Lacrosse began tracking national data in 2001.

More than half of the total players compete at the youth level (age 15 and below), but every segment of the game is showing continued growth patterns. Lacrosse has been one of the nation’s fastest-growing team sports for more than a decade, and that trend continued in 2011.

Professional lacrosse games will be broadcast nationally this year and CBS Sports Network, NBC Sports also will air games in 2012. This could continuously increase lacrosse participation .
