The Southern Nevada Lacrosse Association is organized and maintained to promote, grow, shepherd, govern, and protect the sport of Lacrosse at the youth, middle school, and high school levels, throughout Southern Nevada.



Southern Nevada Lacrosse Association (SNLA) is a nonprofit organization governed under Chapter 82 of the Nevada Revised Statutes and Section 501 (c) of the Internal Revenue Code of 1986.

The main goal of the organization is to promote the game of lacrosse in a safe, sportsmanlike environment among lacrosse teams, and to organize and operate a league of such teams primarily in Nevada.

Further, in recognition of the educational, social and moral values to be derived from participation in lacrosse, SNLA promotes, coordinates, and regulates this corporation and such regional activities in a manner which contributes to the development of student athletes who participate in SNLA.

The board is open to receiving emails regarding the organization. If you have a question or want to provide feedback, please send it to the appropriate member of the board. Please remember that we are an all-volunteer committee of individuals who want to help lacrosse players in Nevada. We are not paid or compensated in any way to volunteer in these positions.
