The Foundation has identified three priority programs in the area of Culture and Community:
Social Membership Restructure
The Club's history has seen thousands of individual members, each with their own story about what it means to be part of the Subiaco Lacrosse community, and each making a contribution to its collective culture. Constitutionally, there exists a class of social membership that provides for limited non-voting participation, based on a relatively low level of day to day interaction with the Club. Practically, the nature of interaction between the Club and its social members has changed due to the challenges of geographical re-location for work or study. At the same time, the advent of technology and social media has created an opportunity for the Club to re-engage with past and present members. As a result, the Foundation is sponsoring a targeted restructure of the Social Membership into a more digitally relevant form on a much broader scale.
The ties between Subiaco and the USA are both long and strong, epitomised by the 1995 senior men's WA state premiership (Subiaco) and senior men's Australian National Championship (WA), the team for which was dominated by Subiaco players and support staff. A 25 year reunion of the 1995 group, extended to anyone who has ever been associated with the Maroon and Gold, has been organised at the half way point between Subiaco and the US (Hawaii) at the end of 2022, due to the logistical impact of COVID19. Members and their families and friends plan to converge on the Pacific island for a week over Christmas, engaging in a series of social activities conducted together with the Hawaiian Lacrosse Association.

The "SubiLax" Project
Many philosophies have passed through the club over the years, resulting in a definitive 'way' that we coach, play, referee and administer the game of lacrosse at Rosalie Park. For want of a better term, this "way" is referred to as "SubiLax", and the Foundation is currently working to define and document all that information so that future generations can access it. The intention is that the information will be published in digital form on the Club website. The project is planned for completion ahead of the 2022 season.
