US Lacrosse Announces Halo LAX as Sanctioning Partner
From HALO LAX:
We’re thrilled to announce that Halo LAX events will officially be sanctioned by US Lacrosse as the lacrosse National Governing Body.
Here at Halo LAX, we feature three distinct event styles including 6onLAX™, the first of its kind 6 on 6 team lacrosse competition. 6onLAX is specifically designed to reduce the number of players needed to easily form teams and is played on a modified field using standard size goals. To learn more about 6onLAX or to sign up for an upcoming event, visit our website.
“We have spent a lot of focus, time, and energy developing an extraordinary experience to expand the sport of Lacrosse,” said Jason Clement, CEO of SF Companies. “6onLAX will be a big part of that initiative and aligns with the international movement of seeing lacrosse in the Olympics. The objective is to provide a fun, fast-paced way for a lot of players to improve their skills and have the opportunity to play at every stage of life. We are thrilled to be aligned with US Lacrosse in an effort to expand the sport of lacrosse and increase access to this sport.”
To address the need for tournament standardization, the US Lacrosse Sanctioning Program provides an operational framework to create a more consistent experience for athletes. Sanctioned tournaments have been deemed by the sport’s national governing body to meet best-practice standards in five categories: venue, game format, risk management, tournament administration, and the use of certified US Lacrosse officials.
“We’re very excited to welcome Halo LAX into our event sanctioning program,” said J.P. Fischer, senior manager for sanctioning and events at US Lacrosse. “Through detailed planning, they’ve shown a tremendous commitment to creating a positive experience for all participants and they’ve embraced US Lacrosse concepts for developing 6onLAX. We look forward to expanding the sport and increase access for play.”
