U.S. Women's National Team Clinics
U.S. Women’s National Team clinics are your chance to learn from the best players in the world! US Lacrosse offers clinics across the country for youth and high school players (grades 1-12) each year. In addition to preparing future generations of lacrosse stars, the clinics also serve as fundraisers for the U.S. National Teams Program and local US Lacrosse chapters.
“The instruction was top-notch and focused on adding skills and sophistication, not just running over stuff [the girls] already know. Just as impressive, if not more so, was what great ambassadors the Team USA women were. They were fun and enthusiastic, and exceedingly patient and indulgent of every girl. It is hard for girls [in Roanoke] to find heroes in the game they love – a player to emulate, a standard to try to meet. For the girls who attended, this clinic went a long way toward filling the gap."
-- Matt Chittum, youth coach/parent, Roanoke, Va.

Fundraising Events: "An Evening with Team USA"
The US Lacrosse Foundation hosts a series of dinner events where local parents and players are invited to spend “An Evening with Team USA.” These exclusive events provide an opportunity for local youth to get one-on-one time with members of Team USA. Proceeds offset costs of training and travel for the U.S. Women’s National Team as they prepare for World Cup competition.
On Saturday, June 29, the US Lacrosse Foundation and U.S. Women's National Team Program will host "An Evening with Team USA" at Johns Hopkins University in Baltimore. This parent-daughter dinner is an exclusive chance to meet the entire U.S. Women’s National Team in an intimate event that includes autographs, photo opportunities, a silent auction, and one-on-one interaction for you and your daughter with the world’s best women’s lacrosse players. A limited number of tickets for the dinner are still available.

US Lacrosse Foundation: Raising Change for Team USA
Every penny counts towards the road to gold, and the stops along the way. A gold standard has been set for every U.S. National Team that steps on the field. As winners of a combined 26 world championships, the journey is not only about hoisting the trophy, but also the stops along the way, traveling the country to serve as ambassadors for our spot and role models for our youth.
Please consider making a secure donation to fuel the journey of the U.S. Women’s National Team to Oshawa, Ontario this summer to defend the 2009 FIL World Cup title.
