The deadline for nominating Men’s Division candidates for induction into the US Lacrosse Hall of Fame (Eastern Pennsylvania Chapter), Class of 2021, is August 15 (Saturday).
The Men’s and Women’s Class of 2021 inductees will be recognized at the PLA’s Hall of Fame Banquet on January 30, 2021 at the Whitemarsh Valley Country Club in Lafayette Hill, PA.
The PLA hosts the induction ceremony every two years to honor the great players, coaches, officials, promoters and others, both men and women, who have made significant contributions to the game in Pennsylvania and are deserving of the highest recognition. College graduates from 2010 or earlier are eligible for consideration for the Class of 2021.
The Hall of Fame Nomination/Questionnaire Forms and the PLA’s Hall of Fame Selection Criteria are available on the PLA website (click here) or by contacting Hank Resch (email@example.com), Chair, PLA’s Men’s Nominating Committee, or Michelle Doyle (firstname.lastname@example.org), Chair, HOF/Women’s Division. The deadline for Women’s Division candidates was May 31st.
The Class of 2021 Hall of Fame will be selected this fall following a balloting process, consideration by the PLA Hall of Fame Nominating Committees and a vote by the PLA Board of Directors, based on the recommendations of the Nominating Committees. Please forward all letters of support with the completed nomination form by the deadline to the attention of the Hall of Fame Men’s Nominating Committee Chair. Also, please contact the Chair if you wish to participate in the balloting process.
The names, pictures and lacrosse biographies of inductees will be posted in the Hall of Fame section of the PLA and US Lacrosse websites. Their names and pictures will also join previous Hall of Fame inductees on plaques located with other lacrosse-related memorabilia in display cases at the “Wall of Fame,” which is located at United Sports in Downingtown.
Approximately 200 attendees are expected for the event in late January, 2020. Tickets will be available this November.
