Washington State Lacrosse Hall of Fame

We are no longer accepting nominations for 2021.  

The Washington Chapter of the US Lacrosse Hall of Fame honors the great players, coaches, officials, contributors and champions of the game, who have made significant contributions to the game in Washington and are deserving of the highest recognition.

Induction to Washington Chapter of the US Lacrosse Hall of Fame is one of the highest honors one can receive for achievement in the sport in Washington. Chapter Hall of Fame recognition is a condition for eligibility for the National Lacrosse Hall of Fame, which is located in Baltimore.

The Washington State Chapter Hall of Fame was established in 2006, when it inducted its first Hall of Fame class of 11 individuals. There have been four Hall of Fame classes inducted since.
