Giving Lax is an organization dedicated to bringing lacrosse to underprivileged youth in South Florida. Giving Lax collects new and used lacrosse equipment to outfit the children with all necessary protective gear. Once we’ve collected enough equipment, we begin our instructional lacrosse clinics at various after-school centers.

Lacrosse Books: “Lacrosse: The Ancient Game” Presents The Culture And History Of The Game


"The reason why we wanted to put this book out was that it's very important for the newcomers to the game to understand the culture and history of the game," publisher and co-author Jim Calder said to a crowd in the museum that included, among others, US Lacrosse employees, members of the Johns Hopkins' men's and women's lacrosse teams and Georgetown coach Dave Urick, who coached Calder as a player in the 1970s at Hobart. The 95-page book includes an informative and easily digestible 24-page version of the oral tradition of "the Creator's Game," provided by Jacobs, a Faithkeeper and member of the Cayuga Nation, part of the Six Nations Confederacy. Another section of the book explores the growth and change of the game after European contact, and the final section provides insight on 'The Stickmaker' and the relationship and ritual of the stick.Throughout, the book includes brilliant, original illustrations by David Craig, one of Canada's premier illustrators, and Arnold Jacobs, an Onondaga Nation Hereditary Chief, that provide an effective visual context.Throughout, the book includes brilliant, original illustrations by David Craig, one of Canada's premier illustrators, and Arnold Jacobs, an Onondaga Nation Hereditary Chief, that provide an effective visual context.
