Welcome to Tacoma Tigers 2021 LACROSSE SEASON
Registration is Open Now!
Tacoma Tigers Lacrosse Club is a youth lacrosse club for boys and girls, Kindergarten through 8th grade. We are a member of US Lacrosse and operate in the South Sound Youth Lacrosse League.
We encourage anyone interested in learning more about the sport to get in touch with us for opportunities to join us on a team or come to a practice to try it out.
We are an evolving club and are run entirely by parents and volunteers to make the sport of lacrosse accessible to the youth in our community.
US Lacrosse has announced a set of return to play recommendations to assist the lacrosse community in following the appropriate steps to mitigate the risk for all participants in the COVID-19 environment. The recommendations were developed by a medical advisory committee, chaired by Dr. Eugene Hong, chair of the US Lacrosse Sport Science & Safety Committee.
The safety of our kids is our top priority, and our lacrosse organization follow the high standards set by US Lacrosse and the SSYL.
US Lacrosse believes there are many reasons to play sports, including athletes enjoying a wide range of physical, emotional and social benefits. But abuse, on any level and in any form, can not be part of the equation.
It is the intent of our SafeSport Program to clearly demonstrate the US Lacrosse commitment to the safety and well-being of lacrosse athletes. The paramount principal for US Lacrosse and its members is that any and all forms of physical and sexual abuse and/or misconduct are strictly prohibited.
The Center for Sport Science at US Lacrosse serves as a national hub for the study and improvement of safety and performance in lacrosse. Created in 2016, the Center is devoted to research, education, collaboration, policy development, and best practices guidelines that benefit the safety and wellness of lacrosse players, with a particular focus on youth players.
The Center for Sport Science seeks to expand and elevate the safety initiatives that US Lacrosse has been committed to since its creation in 1998, with nearly $1 million in health-related research funding since that time to improve the well-being of lacrosse participants at all levels of play.
Every year, players of all ages in all sports receive concussion injuries during games and practice. Characterized by an impairment of the brain’s normal function and caused by violent shaking or jarring of the brain, concussions may cause alterations in cognitive function, vision, eye movement, facial movement, or speech. Contrary to popular belief, no helmet in any sport can prevent a concussion.
US Lacrosse and the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) have partnered to develop a number of educational resources regarding concussions. These resources, titled Heads Up, contain practical, easy-to-use information designed to help reduce the numbers of this type of injury.
All of our coaches and staff have mandatory training and certifications CPR.
Sudden cardiac arrest is the leading cause of death in the United States, taking the lives of an estimated 400,000 people each year. Sudden cardiac arrest occurs when the electrical system of the heart malfunctions, causing the heart to stop beating. Sudden cardiac arrest is an indiscriminant killer and can strike anyone - including seemingly healthy young athletes.
One rare but potentially catastrophic phenomenon in athletes that results in sudden cardiac arrest is commotio cordis. Commotio cordis occurs when a blunt, but often relatively mild, blow to the area of the chest directly over the heart occurs during a precise moment of heart's cycle, leading to sudden cardiac arrest
“It is our hope that parents and coaches can use this information as a guide and standard when making decisions about how best to encourage a young athlete’s participation and development in lacrosse. In changing times, we want to ensure that future generations will enjoy the game as much as we all have in our lifetime.”
US Lacrosse and Positive Coaching Alliance (PCA) are partners in a nationwide endeavor to make lacrosse a positive, character-building experience for every athlete and to improve the experience for officials, coaches, parents and fans.
