What is it about Lacrosse that everyone loves?
The camaraderie of teammates?
The individual drive to be the best?
Whatever your reason is, when the creators of PhilippinesLacrosse.com arrived in this country, we knew we had a much bigger problem: the sport of Lacrosse didn’t even exist here yet.
We looked for games. We checked online. We checked forums.
We found NOTHING.
Lacrosse did not exist yet in the Philippines. And that was a major issue because when you begin to play Lacrosse, it becomes a passion.
You think about it. You talk about it. You dream about it.
It’s the fastest game on two feet, and the easiest game to fall in love with. And we were determined to bring it here.
After lots of thinking (often over too many San Miguel products) we came up with a realization: Lacrosse is one of the fastest growing sports in the world, but its not in the Philippines because its simply too expensive. With an individual’s gear running over 20,000pesos just to play, we realized that the sport could never grow here because only a very small percentage of citizens could actually afford it.
So if we really wanted to grow the sport, and make it sustainable, we knew we couldn’t just BRING THE SPORT HERE….we had to CHANGE the cost structure….we needed to re-think how to get it here without tarnishing the sport we loved so much.
After months of negotiations, creating samples, and working with manufacturers we were able to drastically reduce the costs of the gear…our mission was complete: make Lacrosse affordable to the Philippines.
In our mission we didn’t jeopardize the quality of the equipment….we didn’t tarnish how the game is played….we didn’t change any of the rules….
Because of this, our passion grows with the game…
A game that you will soon fall in love with and call your own….
