Establishing its first national team in 1990, Germany has since grown throughout the country with over 40 club teams and tough competition at the youth and professional levels. The men's and women's national teams are recognized as one of the 26 nations in the ELF (European Lacrosse Federation). In 2001, the German Men's National Lacrosse Team defeated the favorite England in the European Lacrosse Championships to win gold. This marked the first time in the history of the European Lacrosse Championships that England has lost, winning gold in 8 of the 9 championships since 1995.

Despite only the small amount of success at the national level, the interest at the youth level continues to grow throughout the country but the amount of coaches and referees have been struggling to reach the demand. On a ProActive Lacrosse tour, you and your team could have the opportunity to not only compete against tough competition, but also contribute to the development of the sport internationally through hosting lacrosse camps or clinics.

A ProActive Lacrosse tour through Germany gives you and your team a cultural experience that will last a lifetime. With club teams scattered all throughout the country, our tours include top tourist sites and attractions such as the Imperial Castle of Nuremburg, the Dachau Concentration Camp, the historical region of Bavaria, and a visit to the famous Sportschule Oberhaching.
