SPONSORSHIP OPPORTUNITIES

Just over 750,000 nationwide players currently compete on organized lacrosse teams. Lacrosse continues to be the fastest-growing sport in America. It is also the fastest-growing NCAA sport, with schools continuing to add lacrosse. This is a sport that is fun for both players and spectators because of the speed at which the game is played.

ADDITIONAL OPPORTUNITIES

MVP Ball Sportsmanship is of the utmost importance to all 3d Lacrosse events. To reflect our drive to increase ethical, appropriate and fair behavior in athletic events, we have created the MVP Ball. At the end of each game, the coach from both teams is given one MVP Ball to be publicly presented to the one player on the opposing team that they feel was the Most Valuable Player. This presentation not only draws attention to the players’ game play, it is also an opportunity to show the importance of being gracious whether the team won or lost the game.

NON-PROFITS WE SUPPORT ALL YEAR

Harlem Lacrosse Harlem Lacrosse is a non-profit organization that builds leadership skills, academic achievement and social responsibility through lacrosse. The non-profit organization offers a safe, structured environment for children with special learning needs and behavioral challenges to develop into community leaders while also competing on the lacrosse field. Harlem’s combination of lacrosse and academic advancement programs operate in four schools in New York City and one in Baltimore, serving approximately 200 boys and girls, ages 11 through 16. 3d Lacrosse’s instructional focus on small-side skills and tight finishes matches effectively with the limited field/practice spaces available in Harlem’s participating inner-city campuses. Among the non-profits’ many goals is securing prep school scholarships for skilled, inner-city athletes. Since 2011, Harlem has garnered more than $15 million dollars’ worth, enabling their players to advance both academically and athletically. Learn more at http://www.harlemlacrosse.org/.

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 provides 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 the players 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 programs in the country. This is important because treating orthopedic conditions requires collaboration and care from all types of pediatric movement specialists.
