o And much, much more?

2. Develop a budget
The first step in developing your club is creating a workable budget. The budget is the foundation of your club and you must plan for the financial needs of the group. You can find more information in the US Lacrosse Start Up manual

3. Secure Field Space
Once you have a budget outline you will need to find places to practice and play. This is a fundamental step in starting a club.
