Qualifications to apply for the Physical Education Lacrosse Workshop Program are different than qualifications to apply for the Soft Lacrosse Equipment Grant. Please read the following qualifications prior to applying for either.
Grant Option 1: Physical Education Lacrosse Workshop Program
Awarding of a Physical Education Lacrosse Workshop is limited annually based on resources available and trainer availability. Applicants are evaluated on their ability to host a workshop that reaches a group of individuals who are willing and able to implement soft lacrosse in their respective programs in the short-term future. Examples of qualifying groups are (but not limited to): US Lacrosse Chapters, school systems or school districts, after school programs and community-based organizations (i.e. YMCA). As mentioned above, workshop grant recipients will also receive a set of equipment for each teacher in attendance at the workshop.
If awarded a PE Workshop, the host group is responsible for the following:
♦ Securing sufficient location for a live interactive workshop that includes lecture and demo components and is of appropriate size for anticipated audience. Host group is responsible for any fees associated with use of the site.
♦ Providing audio visual support-LCD projector, screen, computer (optional based on trainer).
♦ Hospitality for trainers and attendees, such as refreshments and snacks.
♦ Promoting the event, ensuring attendees register online prior to the event.
♦ Communicating with the trainer.
♦ Supplying post-event anecdotes, photos, etc. to US Lacrosse.
US Lacrosse will provide the following for PE Workshops:

♦ Securing equipment, USL PE Curriculum Guides and workshop materials.
♦ Event insurance
♦ Promotional literature for the event
♦ National publicity
Grant Option 2: Soft Lacrosse Equipment Grant
Awarding of a Soft Lacrosse Equipment Grant is limited annually based on resources available. USL places emphasis on applying organizations that are located in emerging lacrosse areas. Qualified applicants can be schools, school systems, community-based programs, and lacrosse programs looking to add a "pee-wee" or introductory version of the game for younger players. Examples of qualifying groups are (but not limited to): US Lacrosse Chapters, individual school or lacrosse team, after-school or community-based organization (i.e. YMCA).
If you are looking to apply for equipment for multiple programs or an entire school system, US Lacrosse strongly encourages you to apply for a workshop grant.
