Australian Women’s Lacrosse Council (AWLC)
The year 1962 marks the year when the Australian Women’s Lacrosse Council (AWLC) was founded. Mrs. Joyce Parker became its first ever president. In 1965, AWLC achieved greater exposure after participating in the annual interstate match between VIC and DA during the Men’s Lacrosse Carnival in Perth, Western Australia. The Western Australians subsequently joined the AWLC, formed their own organization, and went on to win the first ever Women’s Lacrosse Championship. The Tasmania Women’s Association then joined AWLC in 1978 as a full member. Other significant events for the AWLC include the conduct of its first ever U16 National Championships in 1970; and its first U19 interstate match in 1982.
