Jane Pirie travels to Taipei

A longtime player, coach and ambassador for the sport of lacrosse, Brookwood Athletic Director Jane Pirie is currently part of a group from the Federation of International Lacrosse visiting Taipei, Taiwan to promote the sport in the country. Her adventures are taking her far beyond the field as she tours one of the most vibrant countries of the Pacific Rim. Stay current with her adventure by reading her daily posts on Brookwood’s Global Classroom blog.

In January, 2015, Chinese Taipei was granted membership as the 52nd country to join the Federation of International Lacrosse. The Taiwan Lacrosse Association (TWLA) focuses on the growth of lacrosse in the country and joins nine other Pacific Rim members - Australia, New Zealand, China, Hong Kong, Japan, Singapore, South Korea, Philippines, Thailand and Malaysia - according to the Federal of International Lacrosse website. Southeast Asia is the fastest growing region in the world for the international sport of lacrosse. Watch a short video of a pre-game cheer!
