Fast Break, an initiative that started in 2005, is designed to infuse a fledgling lacrosse area with resources to launch the sport from the roots up through educating coaches, officials, players and administrators.
Fast Break targets an area that has a limited amount of lacrosse being played, but displays strong enthusiasm for the sport and a willingness to learn and work with US Lacrosse to grow the game responsibly. A Fast Break area should be ready to embrace US Lacrosse, membership within the organization and the resources that are associated with recognition as a US Lacrosse Chapter.
The local US Lacrosse chapter is responsible for hosting the Fast Break weekend, which is designed to serve as a miniature version of the US Lacrosse National Convention.
Through Fast Break, US Lacrosse will provide the following programs for free, or at highly discounted rates, to the attendees:
♦ US Lacrosse Coaching Education Program
♦ US Lacrosse Officials' Training Program
♦ US Lacrosse Physical Education Lacrosse Workshop
Please contact the Sport Development Department at email@example.com or 410-235-6882 x164 if you have further questions.
