In 1965, after considerable lobbying efforts from a group of passionate lacrosse enthusiasts, the Canadian Lacrosse Hall of Fame was created to serve as a permanent way to recognize and honour box players, field players, builders, teams who have contributed to the rich history of lacrosse in Canada. Located in New Westminster (which has its own unique lacrosse history), the hall serves as not only a repository for the great participants and founders of the sport, but as the custodian of the history of Canadian Lacrosse.
Showcasing both the tradition of lacrosse from its very roots, with galleries honouring the First Nations who created the game, the hall also includes exhibits chronicling the game’s transition into modern life. Come visit the Hall at its new location in the Anvil Centre and soak up the rich history Canada has with our summer sport.
