Lacrosse at Kapiolani Park

Native Americans created the game of lacrosse, a team sport similar to soccer that’s played with netted sticks and a rubber ball. If you head to Kapiolani Park on a Sunday, you’ll see the game is alive and well in the Islands (and has been since 1989). “Lacrosse has seen huge growth here over the last five years,” says Cameron Hunt, president of the U.S. Lacrosse Hawaii Chapter. Thanks to the Aloha Youth Lacrosse Association (AYLA), a new generation of local kids is growing up with the sport. And beginners of all ages are always welcome. “We love having anybody we can get,” he says.
