2011 Lacrosse Sports Medicine Conference
March 11, 2011
Sheraton Inner Harbor Hotel - Baltimore, Maryland
About the Conference
Lacrosse is the oldest and currently the fastest growing team sport in America. Unique versions of the sport are played by girls/women and boys/men from age 6 to 60 who compete in youth leagues and scholastic, collegiate, professional, club and masters levels of play. The differences between the rules, culture and styles of men’s and women’s lacrosse result in unique sets of injuries, and there is a growing body of lacrosse-specific sports medicine knowledge concerning the mechanisms, treatments, and prevention of these injuries. It is our goal to provide a comprehensive, national level conference on men’s and women’s lacrosse-specific sports medicine for the medical and lacrosse communities.
