Mission statement

The mission statement of the US Lacrosse Museum and National Hall of Fame is as follows:

It is our mission to honor men and women, past and present, who by their deeds as players, coaches, officials, and/or contributors, and by the example of their lives, personify the great contribution of the sport of Lacrosse to our way of life, and to enshrine such individuals in the National Lacrosse Hall of Fame. In addition, we will maintain a museum, depository or showplace for memorabilia, artifacts, equipment, uniforms, written material and documents relating to and descriptive of the sport of Lacrosse and its history, including its Native American origins.
