Lacrosse, together with hockey, shares recognition as one of Canada’s two Official National sports. Its origins date back hundreds of years. Lacrosse has had lasting influence on the culture of the province of Ontario. Ontario has, by far, the largest and most active numbers of registered participants of an organized lacrosse body in Canada. Even though there is a Canadian Lacrosse Hall of Fame, the number of Annual Inductees is limited by a quota and thus there are many deserving of recognition who will never be inducted.
