What is the TryLax™ Grant?

TryLax™ is an exciting, effective way for programs to recruit new players into the sport and their organization. This grant is for US Lacrosse Member Organizations that want to introduce lacrosse to boys and girls, ages 6-14, for the first time. This opens an affordable path for parents to allow their children to discover if they enjoy lacrosse before paying the full registration fee for a program or season. Awarded organizations will receive the necessary resources to provide a safe and fun introductory lacrosse experience.

Who is the clinic for?

Boys and girls, ages 6-14 who want to experience lacrosse for the first time.

TryLax™ clinics are a 90-minute, introductory lacrosse experience for kids who have never played before, but are thinking they might want to. The clinic features US Lacrosse designed curriculum delivered by coaches from local lacrosse programs.

What does the event cost for participants?

Recommended $35 per participant, may vary by location based on the grant agreement (limit of 50 participants per gender game).

Why is there a cost?

The value of the items provided exceeds the registration fee greatly. This fee ensures commitment and value with the participants. Each participant receives a Warrior Warp (boys) or a Brine (girls) stick, a SwaxLax ball, as well as a one year membership to US Lacrosse. This is part of the grant package for the awarded organization.
