LaxCon For All

For nearly two decades, thousands of lacrosse coaches, officials and fans have traveled to Baltimore or Philadelphia to annually experience the sport’s biggest trade show and professional development opportunity. This year, US Lacrosse is bringing LaxCon to you in an all-virtual event. The game hasn’t changed, just the game plan.

Let’s turn the challenges of 2020 into opportunities — for everyone — in 2021. Let’s lock arms, collect the sport’s brightest minds, learn from each other and position ourselves for growth and success in the new year.

Represent your community. Reimagine the way we play. Reignite your love of lacrosse.
