Wikipedia:WikiProject Lacrosse

Welcome to the Lacrosse WikiProject. We are a group dedicated to improving Wikipedia's coverage of the sport of lacrosse.

(For more information on WikiProjects, please see Wikipedia:WikiProject and the Guide to WikiProjects).

Goals Edit

The goal of this project is to organize the efforts of those working on articles about and concerning the sport of lacrosse, including all four distinct versions of the sport: men's field lacrosse, box lacrosse (or indoor lacrosse), women's lacrosse, and intercrosse or soft-stick lacrosse. Each has its own article with a link from the main lacrosse article.

Leagues Edit

All professional or highest level of play lacrosse leagues should have articles describing the teams, former teams, champions and past champions, awards, etc.

List of leagues:

Teams Edit

All team pages need improvement. They should have several prose sections, including history, championship descriptions, notable years, and notable players. Perhaps arena info or broadcasting. Tables should include championships, yearly records, roster of players, head coaches, maybe draft picks. Example: Philadelphia Wings (1987–2014). Or any NFL, NBA, MLB, or NHL team page.

WPLL team pages are stubs. Also, almost all WLA and MSL teams are stubs with very few citations. Finally, PLL team pages are mostly statistics, with very little prose content. An external link to the PLL's stat page would suffice for the individual stats table.

Players Edit

  • {{Infobox lacrosse player}} should be used on all player pages.
  • Player pages should include the year(s) that the player has played, which team(s) he/she played for (in as many leagues as possible), and should include stats (at least for NLL, PLL and MLL) if possible.
  • Any participation in international lacrosse should be mentioned as well.

Other Edit

Create and improve pages on tournaments and championships - Mann Cup, Minto Cup, NCAA, Heritage Cup, World Lacrosse championships, other international tournaments, etc.

Expand international lacrosse articles.

Tasks Edit

clean-up listing for Lacrosse 

Assessment Edit

Note that pages tagged with a class of "Image" do not appear in this table.

The assessment system allows the WikiProject to monitor the quality of articles in its subject areas, and to prioritize work on these articles. The class and importance should be filled in on the parameters of the {{WikiProject Lacrosse}} template on the article's talk page.

These guidelines can help to determine what class should be assigned to an article.

Logos Edit

League and team logos should contain this:
{{Non-free logo|sports logos}}

Fair use template for logos Edit

Note that logos (teams, leagues, etc.) require a "Fair use" tag and rationale. Here's the page from Image:BaltimoreThunder.png as an example:

{{Non-free media rationale
|Description    = Logo of the [[Baltimore Thunder]] lacrosse team (now defunct)
|Source         =
|Article        = Baltimore Thunder
|Portion        = Entire image
|Purpose        = for fair use:
*This image is a low-resolution image of the logo.
*This image does not limit the copyright holder's ability to profit from the original source, nor will it dilute the importance or
recognition of the logo in connection with its organization.
*This image enhances the article in which it's displayed, as it provides an immediate means of visual identification of the subject to
the reader more capably than the textual description alone.
*Use of the logo visually identifies the organization in a manner that mere prose cannot, and meets all criteria in WP:NFCC.
|Resolution     = Yes
|Replaceability = Not replaceable

Roster templates Edit

There are two player templates; one for actual rosters and another for lists.

The {{Player}} template should be used for rosters and roster templates, where the {{Lacrosse player list}} template should be used for lists.

{{Lacrosse player start}}
{{Lacrosse player list | no=num | pos=pos | nat=Canada | name=name | other=other }}
{{Lacrosse player mid}}
{{Lacrosse player end}}

Which looks like this:

No. Position Player
