Stan Cockerton — LASt Word

The 2018 FIL World Lacrosse Championships was monumental in many ways, and Lacrosse All Stars gave you a dynamic front-row seat to the action with interviews including an interview with former FIL president Stan Cockerton, who has passed the reins over to current FIL President Sue Redfern.

It was the first time the games had been hosted in a non-English speaking country. Ever. It was also the best participation at a world games with 46 countries participating.

LaxAllStars was there to bring you all of the coverage. Over the next few weeks, we will be reliving the top moments and memories from world championships. Follow along as we bring you exclusive interviews, photos, highlight videos and more.

Josh and Stan discuss the growth of the game across the world, the role that the media plays in its growth, lacrosse as an Olympic sport and what it’s like now that Stan has stepped down as president.

We’d like to thank our friends at SISU Mouthguards for their support of our coverage at the world games. Be sure to check out their site and consider buying one of their products.
