The American Lumberjack Association strives to keep logger sports alive and well, and to teach our children and those after them to do the same. We are an organization committed to promoting the preservation of our rich logging heritage, and to honor those who were the foundation for what the timber industry and sports community is today.
The ALA provides rules which account for consistency and uniformity for both the competitors and the sanctioned shows.We maintain equipment, keep records and mail regular newsletters to members. We hold two annual meetings, and we have a Board of Directors, consisting of four officers and four board members.
Each sanctioned show has its own management and is run to suit the community in which it is held. The rules help create a standard of competition; this helps rank our athletes when competing in other parts of North America and internationally. Rules also help improve the safety of our sport.
We have several categories of membership, including a discounted price for collegiate competitors.
