Social Responsibility Initiatives
3d Lacrosse is committed to giving back to the communities in which we live and work. Beyond the most natural expression of our expertise – providing an extraordinary amount of in-kind lacrosse instruction to worthy organizations – we also donate funds, uniforms and equipment to a variety of non-profit and community-based groups both inside and outside of the lacrosse industry. Additionally, our staff and coaches serve as volunteers and board members for organizations in their individual regions to support and grow the game of lacrosse.
Highlights of our recent efforts include:
• Program Donations – On an annual basis, we donate more than $25,000 worth of 3d Lacrosse training (camps, clinics and workshops) to school auctions, non-profit fundraisers, and other organizations.
• Scholarships – We grant needs-based scholarships to 3d Select club players in excess of $50,000 each year.
• Equipment & Uniforms – We hold annual equipment drives to help local, underserved communities as well as the US Lacrosse Foundation’s First Stick Program and we have also provided team uniforms to some of our non-profit partners.
Sports Medicine Center at Children’s Hospital Colorado
3d Lacrosse believes in the mission of Children’s Hospital Colorado and is specifically committed to the Sports Medicine Center. The dedicated staff at Children’s Hospital Colorado provide comprehensive assessment, treatment and expert advice for children and teens with injuries and conditions that affect sports performance. Children’s Hospital Colorado understands the demands and pressures that school-aged athletes face as they play sports and they believe that they need to be managed differently than their adult counterparts. Children’s Hospital Colorado is one of the only truly integrated pediatric orthopedics, orthopedic surgery, sports medicine and rehabilitation medicine programs in the country. This is important because treating orthopedic conditions requires collaboration and care from all types of pediatric movement specialists. Click here to learn more.
