Youth Lacrosse Pinnies
We are definitely seeing the rush before winter for all of the youth and adult leagues in sport of lacrosse. Attached is a picture of a great looking set of youth lacrosse pinnies we have going to the boy Raiders team. The royal blue hounds tooth with reversible charcoal gray print looks even better with the lacrosse stick side accent panels. Our youth sizes range from youth extra small to youth extra large. Be sure to check out our size chart for the proper measurements for your youth player.
Also, when sizing your child, make sure to keep in mind the should pads that your child is wearing. If you are in doubt about the youth lacrosse pinnies size, go up a size. The great thing about sublimated youth lacrosse pinnies is that the possibilities for design and personalization are endless. With dye sublimation, you can add as many colors as needed. We operate 5 high speed sublimation printers in our Maryland factory. We are gearing up for the big lacrosse season in the United States and all over the globe.
Below are some great statistics from US lacrosse about the growth of lacrosse in the US. http://www.uslacrosse.org/TopNav/NewsandMedia/PressReleases/2012USLacrosseParticipationReport.aspx
A record total of 722,205 players competed on organized lacrosse teams in 2012, as reported in the annual US Lacrosse Participation Report released today. The growth rate from last year (683,730) was 5.5 percent, marking the ninth straight year of at least five percent growth.
More than half of the participants (389,275) compete at the youth level, representing a 7.8 percent growth rate from last year. Roughly 65 percent of the youth players are boys, but both genders have seen significant increases in participation in recent years. Over the last five years at the youth level, the number of boys playing has increased 62 percent and the number of girls playing has increased 61 percent.
Lacrosse continues to be the fastest-growing sport at the high school level, and a total of 282,148 players competed in 2012. According to data from the NFHS, from 2007 to 2012, a total of 750 schools added boys’ teams and 638 schools added girls’ teams. Those figures represent a 47 percent increase in the number of boys’ programs and a 43 percent increase in the number of girls’ programs, easily outdistancing bowling, which is the second-fastest growing sport with an 18 percent growth rate for boys and a 22 percent growth rate for girls.
Lacrosse is also the fastest-growing NCAA sport, and nearly 35,000 players competed on varsity, club or junior college teams in 2012. Thirty new varsity programs were added in 2012, including the University of Michigan’s men’s team, the first school with a Bowl Championship Series (BCS) football program to add men’s lacrosse since 1981.
US Lacrosse has produced the Participation Report annually since 2001, and over that time span the number of players has grown 184 percent, from 253,901 to 722,205. This survey counts only play on organized teams, and does not count leisure-time play of the sport.
