ALL ABOUT US

Great Western Lacrosse, LLC. - PO BOX 217, Poway, CA 92074 - (858) 883-2491

Great Western Lacrosse LLC was formed in the fall of 1983 by Tommy Hannum and Russ Olsen. It was formed as a special project through the Physical Education Department at San Diego State University. It began with a summer camp of 29 young players in 1984 from the San Diego area and has exploded into the premiere lacrosse adventure on the West coast, teaching over 300 players each year. The Company expanded into Collegiate Recruitment in the early 1990's and has helped many student athlete's make the jump to college lacrosse. Sonoma State, UC Santa Barbara, San Diego State, University of Utah, Westminster University, Loyola Marymount University, UC San Diego, Arizona State University and Chapman University are school that frequent our programs to recruit players to their programs. We also have the oldest high school indoor league in the West. In 1994, we formed the Great Western Indoor Lacrosse League held in the off season. Ten Saturdays over a 2 month period has helped the local lacrosse players keep their skills honed and ready for the spring. In the fall of 2004, we launched an online store for lacrosse equipment and apparel in partnership with Tribal West lacrosse. You will also be able to sign up for Indoor Lacrosse, Private Lessons and the Summer Camps online and pay by credit card. In 2005 we added a High School Tournament to memorialize the "Godfather" of San Diego Lacrosse, and my coach for 7 years, Norm Webb. The format was changed to a Middle School Tournament in 2012. Our tournament ended in 2014. In 2006, we established the Girl's Lacrosse Camp that taught 75-100 girls this great game every summer. Unfortunately, due to lack of interest, the girls summer camp was abandoned in 2011. Feel free to look at our site and if you have any questions at all, about anything we do, please don't hesitate to call or Email.
