We are reaching out today to request that you share the following try-out information about Make A Wish Lacrosse with your organization. We just completed another great summer season with 110+ kids from across Fairfield, Litchfield and New Haven Counties. We played in 17 tournaments with 5 teams (winning tournament championships in New Jersey, Vermont and Connecticut). Our program will be expanding to 8 teams next summer for graduation years; 2020, 2021, 2022, 2023, 2024, 2025, 2026 & 2027. Try-outs will be held at the Youth Academy in Newtown on Saturday, August 18th and Sunday the 19th.
Make A Wish Lacrosse provides a unique opportunity for your town players, including:
Program Stability: We have been in existence for 7 years and have 11 board members to lead our organization.
Non-Profit Status: Because our model does not include a profit motive, we are able to control costs. Coaching fees & custom uniforms are only $400 per player.
Experienced Coaches: Our coaching staff includes current HS coaches from around Fairfield County that also have D1 & D3 player experience.
Philanthropy: Our main charter is to bring hope, strength and joy to children with life-threatening medical conditions. Our players have raised over $600,000 for the CT chapter of Make-A-Wish while learning the valuable life lesson of helping others in their community.
Playing Time: The number of players on each team is kept at a level that allows everyone ample playing time.
