International Lacrosse: The Australian Lacrosse Association (ALA) Men’s And Women’s National Championships Take Place July 10-16 In Adelaide

Lacrosse’s history is rooted in native American culture. The game was once a preparation for war, but the baked clay and stone balls of old have been replaced by rubber balls (to the relief of players). The game was established in Australia in 1875.

Murray Keen has been involved in lacrosse in Australia for more than 20 years, and is now co-coach of the Victorian men’s team. He says that while lacrosse is still a niche sport in Australia, the talent pool is deep. ‘‘We had about 6000 participants last year which is nothing compared to the US and Canada, but we are still competitive against those teams,’’ he says.

‘‘What it comes down to is that we have some great athletes with great attitudes here.’’

The Victorian men’s team is this week aiming for its fifth national title in a row at the Australian Lacrosse Association Men’s and Women’s National Championships in Adelaide.
