Turkey Lacrosse Association

About Lacrosse in Turkey

Turkish Lacrosse Association (TLA) started its activities in 2009 upon the initiatives of Founding President Patrick Dougherty in order to popularize lacrosse sport in Turkey without profit and to bring together the current lacrosse players. In order for the sport of lacrosse to be recognized and popularized in Turkey, the lacrosse branch was explained and promoted through various media outlets and social media. In this process, steps were taken and applications were made for the recognition of our country in international organizations at the same time. In this context, our organization has been accepted as a member by the International Lacrosse Federation (Federation of International Lacrosse) and the European Lacrosse Federation (ELF).
