Lacrosse is one of the oldest organized sports in North America. While at one point it was a field game or ritual played by First Nations, it became popular among non-Indigenous peoples in the mid-1800s. When the National Lacrosse Association of Canada was formed in 1867, it was the Dominion of Canada’s first governing body of sport. Lacrosse was confirmed as Canada’s official summer sport in 1994. The Canadian national lacrosse teams (men and women) rank highly in the world standings, both in field and box lacrosse.
British Columbia is regarded as one of the hotbeds of lacrosse in Canada, with many high school players recruited by colleges, junior, senior and professional box and field teams on both sides of the border. BC High School Lacrosse provides an opportunity for field lacrosse players to represent their secondary schools against other area schools, culminating with an annual Provincial Championships tournament in March for Junior and Senior age groups, Tiers 1 and 2.
