Canadian Lacrosse Hall of Fame:
Early in 1963 a group of lacrosse enthusiasts in New Westminster decided that, because of the Royal City's historical background in the National Sport, New Westminster would be an appropriate location for the Canadian Lacrosse Hall of Fame. With the blessing of the City Council, the interested parties applied to the Canadian Lacrosse Association for a charter.
Induction of new members is made on a annual basis to preserve the memory of stars of yesteryear but the Hall is more than a repository of names and photos of our greatest players, builders and teams; it is also the keeper of our national summer sport's history.
Our new Canadian Lacrosse Hall of Fame will honour the tradition of lacrosse from its very roots, with displays honouring the First Nations who created the game and exhibits showing the game's transition into modern life.
