Welcome to the new ELF website

We’re working hard to grow lacrosse throughout Europe. We started with only 6 countries in 1995 and more than twenty years later, we have over 30 member nations- plus a few on our radar where we’re planting the seeds of our favourite sport.

We run European Championships for U20s and Senior Women’s and men’s field lacrosse as well as Men’s Box lacrosse. We support the development of referees and umpires throughout Europe and in collaboration with the Federation of International Lacrosse. We’re always looking for passionate individuals to help us grow lacrosse, so if you’re interested, please do get in touch! On behalf of the board,

Sticks up!

President, ELF
