Moorestown NJ 08057

Fee: $80

  • Open to players who meet heritage eligibility.

This one and only assessment will be for the selection and establishment of the Puerto Rico Lacrosse Qualifying Team to compete in Colombia at the PanAmerican Lacrosse Association (PALA) 2022 Men’s Senior Tournament. This team will be competing against other nations within PALA, with top finishers advancing to the 2023 World Lacrosse World Championships.  Those selected for this team will be given higher consideration in the establishment of the  National Team Senior Men’s program, but is not an automatic roster spot.


In order for an athlete to represent Puerto Rico in World Lacrosse-sanctioned competition (that is, considered a "passport" athlete), they must meet the following criteria:

  • Hold a U.S. Passport AND meet one of the following:

    • Born in Puerto Rico.

    • Have at least one parent or grandparent who was born in Puerto Rico.

    • Has established a minimum cumulative two-year residency in Puerto Rico within the last five (5) years.

*A copy of the official documentation for any of the above points must be provided to Puerto Rico Lacrosse prior to participation. If a player fails to provide documentation, proving their qualifying status, said player will not be eligible to participate in the event. 

*Although World Lacrosse allows for "non-passport" players to participate in sanctioned events for "emerging nations". Puerto Rico Lacrosse no longer falls under the category of "emerging nations" and will not consider "non-passport" players.
