2009 Equipment Grant Recipients Announced
Forty-five lacrosse organizations in 23 states received US Lacrosse Equipment Grants in 2009. Through its first 11 years, the USL Equipment Grant program has made awards to over 300 programs nationwide with a retail value totalling more than $1.6 million dollars.
Interested in starting a lacrosse program but unable to fund it? The US Lacrosse Equipment Grant may be just the answer you’re looking for. Grants can include a full team’s worth of equipment (sticks and protective gear) and are awarded to programs within their first year of operation. Applicant programs must demonstrate a financial need and priority is given to those residing in a state or region where lacrosse opportunities are currently limited or absent.
Equipment grant purchases are funded by US Lacrosse, thanks to the support of members and donors, as well as the contributions from participating Lacrosse Industry Council members. Additional funding comes from the Lance Holden Memorial Fund, established by Lance's business partner Jim Darcangelo of Lax World to perpetuate Lance's lifelong contribution to lacrosse. These grants minimize the expense of launching new girls’ and boys’ programs, and help to establish a legacy of lacrosse opportunity that will benefit countless youngsters for years to come. US Lacrosse has awarded hundreds of equipment grants in dozens of states throughout the country.
Equipment Grants are awarded on an annual basis.
