The “Road to the Rockies” for every U.S. Men’s National Team player had to start somewhere; most likely with his first stick and big dreams. For many others, the dream is more modest: a stick and team to call their own.
Your gift will provide aspiring and inspiring players the means to play in their community and for their country. For first year players and seasoned veterans, help their journeys begin with a donation to The Dream Drive in support of the First Stick Program and the U.S. Men’s National Team.
No dreamer is ever too small. The First Stick Program will grant stepping stones to players in two fledgling communities to realize their dreams of playing lacrosse for their schools, clubs or simply for the love of the game. Grants include free equipment, coaching education and a two-year partnership with US Lacrosse.
No dream is ever too big. The U.S. Men’s National Team enriches the lacrosse experience for everyone, developing world-class players on the field and ambassadors off the field. Help offset the cost of traveling to competitions, training weekends, clinics and meet-and-greets for the nation’s best mentors and role models, making them more accessible to inspire a new generation to pursue their lacrosse dreams.
