Lacrosse in Australia is a minor sport, with a long and proud history dating back to 1876, with a small but dedicated community of participants and volunteers. The established centres for Lacrosse are in the greater metropolitan areas of Melbourne, Adelaide, and Perth. In these cities there are organised weekend field lacrosse competitions for men and women at senior and junior levels, played over the winter months (April until September). In the off-season, there are informal box lacrosse and sofcrosse competitions, though the majority of players in Australia are mostly of the field lacrosse type. Some lacrosse is also played in Sydney, Newcastle, South East Queensland, Canberra and Hobart, it is very much at the developmental level.

  • Lacrosse wurde im Jahr 1876 in Australien eingeführt. Lambton L. Mount, ein kanadischer Goldgräber, importierte 40 Lacrosse-Schläger, um das Spiel in Melbourne bekannt zu machen. Am 22. April 1876 trugen etwa 20 Spieler das erste Lacrosse-Spiel im dortigen Albert Park aus. Im Jahr 1879 gründeten die Lacrosse Clubs von Melbourne, Fitzroy, South Melbourne und Carlton die Victorian Lacrosse Association. Das erste Lacrosse-Spiel in Südaustralien hat 1885 in den Adelaide Parklands stattgefunden. Nach dem erfolgreichen Aufbau der Lacrosse Clubs von North Adelaide, Noarlunga und Knightsbridge wurde schließlich im Jahr 1888 die South Australian Lacrosse Association gegründet. In Westaustralien fand 1895 das erste Spiel statt. Ein nationaler Verband, der Australian Lacrosse Council (heute Lacrosse Australia), entstand im Jahre 1931. (de)

Lacrosse in Australia is now governed by a single governing body, the Australian Lacrosse Association (ALA), following the merger of Lacrosse Australia and Women's Lacrosse Australia, who had until 2008 governed the men's and women's versions of the games independently. The move to a unified national body was precipitated by the withholding of funds by the Australian federal government. (en)
