The Federation of International Lacrosse (FIL) is the international governing body of lacrosse , responsible for the men's , women's , and indoor versions of the sport. It was established in 2008 by the merger of the previously separate men's and women's international lacrosse associations. [2] The FIL organizes the World Lacrosse Championship , the Women's Lacrosse World Cup , the Under-19 World Lacrosse Championships for both men and women, and the World Indoor Lacrosse Championship . Its headquarters are located in New York City , New York .

The Federation currently has 60 members, 34 of which are full members. [3] [4] FIL is the only international sport organization to recognize First Nations bands and Native American tribes as sovereign nations. The Iroquois Nationals (men) and the Haudenosaunee Nationals (women) of the First Nations Lacrosse Association represent the Haudenosaunee people of New York and Ontario.

The International Lacrosse Federation (ILF) was founded in 1974 to promote and develop the game of men's lacrosse throughout the world. Before 2008, the international governing bodies for men's and women's lacrosse were separate, which was one of the obstacles of lacrosse one day becoming an Olympic sport . In August 2008, the ILF and the International Federation of Women's Lacrosse Associations merged to become the Federation of International Lacrosse.

Lacrosse is a team sport played with a lacrosse stick and a lacrosse ball . Players use the head of the lacrosse stick to carry, pass, catch, and shoot the ball into the goal.

The sport has four versions that have different sticks, fields, rules and equipment: field lacrosse , women's lacrosse , box lacrosse and intercrosse . The men's games, field lacrosse (outdoor) and box lacrosse (indoor), are contact sports and all players wear protective gear: helmet , gloves , shoulder pads, and elbow pads. The women's game does not allow body contact but does allow stick to stick contact. The only protective gear required for women players is eyegear, while goalies wear helmets and protective pads. Intercrosse is a mixed-gender non-contact sport that uses an all-plastic stick and a softer ball.

Lacrosse is part of the cultural tradition of the Iroquois ( Haudenosaunee ) people, inhabiting what is now New York and Pennsylvania. Lacrosse may have been developed as early as 1100 AD among indigenous peoples on Turtle Island (North America). [1] [2] By the seventeenth century, it was well-established and was documented by Jesuit missionary priests in the territory of present-day Canada.
