US Lacrosse has announced that events by Halo LAX, LLC, a subsidiary of the Sports Facilities (SF) Companies, will be sanctioned through its authority as the lacrosse National Governing Body.
Best known for their work in professional facility management across the country through the SFM Network and professional planning services in more than 2,000 communities, the SF Companies recently announced the launch of its Event and Tournament service.
Halo LAX events feature three distinct event styles including 6onLAX™, the first of its kind 6 on 6 team lacrosse competition. 6onLAX is specifically designed to reduce the number of players needed to easily form teams and is played on a modified field using standard size goals. There are 6 players per team on the field at a time, including the goalie, and roster sizes range from 9 to 11.
“We have spent a lot of focus, time, and energy developing an extraordinary experience to expand the sport of Lacrosse,” said Jason Clement, CEO of SF Companies. “6onLAX will be a big part of that initiative and aligns with the international movement of seeing lacrosse in the Olympics. The objective is to provide a fun, fast-paced way for a lot of players to improve their skills and have the opportunity to play at every stage of life. We are thrilled to be aligned with US Lacrosse in an effort to expand the sport of lacrosse and increase access to this sport.”
To address the need for tournament standardization, the US Lacrosse Sanctioning Program provides an operational framework to create a more consistent experience for athletes. Sanctioned tournaments have been deemed by the sport’s national governing body to meet best-practice standards in five categories: venue, game format, risk management, tournament administration, and the use of certified US Lacrosse officials.
“We’re very excited to welcome Halo LAX into our event sanctioning program,” said J.P. Fischer, senior manager for sanctioning and events at US Lacrosse. “Through detailed planning, they’ve shown a tremendous commitment to creating a positive experience for all participants and they’ve embraced US Lacrosse concepts for developing 6onLAX. We look forward to expanding the sport and increase access for play.”
