ALL ABOUT US Great Western Lacrosse LLC was formed in the fall of 1983 by Tommy
PO BOX 217, Poway, California 92074
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 summer.
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, Tournaments and the
Summer Camps online and pay by credit card if you choose.
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. We ended our
tournament in 2014.
In 2006, we established the Girl's Lacrosse Camp that teaches 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.
