As a sponsor of boys and girls lacrosse at the 2013 JCC Maccabi Games, Israel Lacrosse hosted a clinic in between games to expose people who had never seen lacrosse before to the sport. Israel Lacrosse brought in former Dartmouth and Long Island Lizards goalie Andrew Goldstein so that everyone at the clinic could take some shots against a great keeper!

Congratulations to Kevin Kelley of California, the July 2013 Game Grower of the Month.

Help us find someone who screams, I’m a Game Grower, with not only their words, but their actions. We want to reward all of the best Game Growers nationwide with your help! Besides, who wouldn’t want to help their friends get a sweet new set-up from Easton Lacrosse?!

We brought you the story of Highlands Lacrosse in Texas a couple of weeks ago, as Mary Mattia wrote a great story on their program’s first year. Now, Teach For America has followed up with a video on this first season, and it’s a good one!

Lacrosse All Stars is putting the call out there to new programs from across the country, and around the world, to submit stories about their first year (or their first years) out on the field.
We’ll be looking at a number of first year programs this year, and publishing reports from the coaches and supporters of these new teams. Our first report comes from Mary Mattia, out of Highlands, Texas. She played a key role in getting a new program off the ground, and continues to support these boys with their dreams in big ways. We LOVE sharing stories like this one!
