Recognized as the oldest organized sport in North America, lacrosse has featured on two Olympic programs, in 1904 and 1908, both won by Canada. Lacrosse also featured as a demonstration event in 1928, 1932, and 1948, but has not returned since.
Lacrosse is one of the few non-Olympic sports currently on the Canada Games program. It featured from 1969-1985, before a hiatus that will see a return coming at the 2022 Canada Games in Niagara.
Notable alumni include Dave Arsenault, Jamie Batley, and Todd Caissie.
