We are the Pioneers.
We believe in the enormous potential of lacrosse,
and will spread the excitement to everyone.
In Japan, lacrosse began with each and every member being involved in creating and spreading this brand new sport. This DNA has been passed on to our generation.
With the lacrosse pride in our heart, and with the enormous potential the sport possesses, JLA plans to spread the excitement of the sport to as many people as possible.
Go beyond the limit.
Without having any conventional wisdom and by repeatedly challenging, we make lacrosse more freely enjoyable.
Lacrosse is a sport that has continuously evolved since it gave birth. We do not believe that the present form of the sport is perfect. Not being bound by its old norm, each and every one of us has the passion of evolving the sport with the bright future in mind. While preserving the rich traditions, we will help lacrosse evolve into a sport that can be more freely enjoyed by anyone. We will go beyond the limit to make this evolution happens.
