From US Lacrosse

US Lacrosse today announced that 102 teams nationwide have been awarded development grants through the 2012 First Stick Program.

This national USL initiative is designed to deliver comprehensive resources, equipment, US Lacrosse membership and coaches training to awarded teams. The program is geared for new and developing youth and high school lacrosse teams nationwide.

First Stick Program grant recipients now begin a two-year partnership with US Lacrosse, during which time the national organization will help to develop a self-sustaining lacrosse program that operates by US Lacrosse’s national standards and best practices. One of the program’s primary goals is to help break down the barriers to participation by providing free and/or discounted resources to new teams.

“We’re excited that teams from all over the country, including some areas where lacrosse is just beginning to appear, are among this group of award recipients,” said Morgan Cook, USL’s First Stick Program Manager. “We look forward to getting to know each of these new teams and partnering in their development over the next two years.”

Applicant groups were required to demonstrate a financial need and verify their status as a community based youth team or organization, or an elementary, middle or high school team in order to be considered.

“We congratulate each of these recipients because there was a very rigorous application and selection process for the program,” said Billy Hook, USL’s Director of Programs. “The benefits of this program are all encompassing and provide all the tools necessary to help new teams become truly self-sustaining.”

All told, 66 boys’ teams and 36 girls’ teams comprise the 2012 First Stick Program award group. The full listing of recipient teams is included below.
