Partners to Lacrosse

 Australian Sports Commission

The Australian Government is a strong supporter of Australian sport. The Australian Sports Commission (ASC) is the government body that develops, manages and invests in sport at all levels in Australia.

The ASC works closely with a range of sports, state and local governments, schools and community groups to ensure sport is well run and accessible so that everyone can participate and enjoy the benefits. It also works through the Australian Institute of Sport and state and territory institutes and academies, to develop Australia’s elite sportsmen and women.

The ASC strives to uphold the integrity of sport through innovative programs that promote ethical sporting practices and improve access to sporting quality opportunities for all Australians.

ASC funding enables the Australian Lacrosse Association to conduct the management of the sport through programs/initiatives:

  • The development of a grass-roots level participation entry package
  • The management of lacrosse across Australia
  • The support of each of the state associations as applicable
  • Conduct of national competition at Under15 for boys and girls, Under18 and Senior/Open levels for men and women
  • Conduct of a National Conference covering Coaching, Officiating and management programs
  • Alignment with international lacrosse organisations

ALA enjoys a working relationship with the Australian Sports Commission and values the contribution made to lacrosse in Australia through funding, consultation and provision of information, resources and materials.

Under Armour

Our mission is clear:  MAKE ALL ATHLETES BETTER

ALA is very pleased to have been associated with UA in an ongoing association for a number of years in relation to the ALA Women’s High Performance programs.  UA have sponsored our Senior and Under19 Australian Teams as well as providing significant discounts to the Australian U23 teams (men and women).

This UA sponsorship of these teams has made a considerable contribution to the offset of costs, and is greatly appreciated by ALA along with the members of the relevant HP programs.

Acland Travel

ALA is very pleased to have in place an alignment with the travel company called Acland Travel, which is located in Melbourne.  Through Acland Travel we are able to have aspects of travel for the ALA Board and ALA High Performance programs organised with a rebate payable to ALA.  This alignment is in the process of being extended to the ALA Member Associations to the benefit of those organisations.
