Initiated in 1997 The New Jersey Lacrosse Foundation has annually inducted individuals based on outstanding lacrosse achievement and/or contribution. As a chapter of US Lacrosse, The New Jersey Lacrosse Foundation strives for consistency with the national organization. The mission of the US Lacrosse Hall of Fame is to honor men and women, past and present, which 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.
