How to Receive Lacrosse Magazine (Subscriptions)

Now in its 35th year, Lacrosse Magazine is available only to members of US Lacrosse as one of the many benefits of membership. Membership dues help US Lacrosse fuel the growth of the game nationwide. Join US Lacrosse today to start your subscription to Lacrosse Magazine.

Non-youth members receive all issues of the magazine. Youth members (age 14 and under) currently receive the February, March, April, May, July and October issues, but have the option to upgrade to all issues with their membership.

New members must join at least one month prior to an issue month in order to receive the next issue. For example, to receive the July issue, a member must join US Lacrosse before the address file is pulled from the database by June 1.

When quantities permit, additional copies or back issues of Lacrosse Magazine can be purchased through US Lacrosse. The cost of each issue is $5 for members and $6 for non-members, inclusive of postage. To inquire about quantities, please e-mail info@uslacrosse.org.

Some members have noticed that the address label on the magazine is now being printed upside down. This is not a printing error. This is a new requirement from the USPS for periodicals using co-mail (which we do). The only way to print addresses right-side up would be to move them to the back cover, which we do not favor doing at this time.
