Lacrosse is the fastest growing sport in the country, and
Stafford Lacrosse Association (SLA)
is a local non-profit that helps to grow lacrosse in the Stafford area.
SLA is part of Northern Virginia Youth Lacrosse League (NVYLL), the
largest lacrosse rec league in the country.
A number of years ago, SLA worked to get girls lacrosse into high
schools. The 3-3-3 project is our latest initiative.
Ensure we field 2 full girls teams at each age level in 2018
Increase the number of players feeding into certain high schools
Bring lacrosse opportunities to a broader cross-section of players
Send our “collegians” to P.E. classes
Followed by a 1-day after-school clinic
Followed by a low-cost summer camp
Rather than rely on volunteers, we are paying our “collegians”:
county women who played SLA and now play in college
Choosing the schools lets us target both under-served high
schools and under-served demographics
This plan pays for itself through the camp, rather than asking
spring league registrations to pay
