Hall of Fame Criteria

The criteria below sets out the minimum levels which potential Hall of Famers must meet to enable them to be considered as a potential Hall of Fame member.  It is anticipated that successful candidates will exceed these requirements.

For women, the introduction of the World Cup in 1982 put a different perspective on international matches and provided many more opportunities for international competition.   The inclusion of lacrosse at the World Games in 2017 now provides, once again, the opportunity to represent Great Britain. The criteria has been updated to take account of this.
