What is OVERTIME?
Simply put: an open conversation series on racism in the sport of lacrosse.
Overtime – Intends to provide a forum for members of the lacrosse community to discuss matters of racism from their own experiences and perspectives. Through these communal talks, the once uncomfortable can be turned into a teachable and growth opportunity for a better future.
Today, the need to better understand each other is paramount if we, as a community, are to successfully continue as stewards of lacrosse. We are definitely NOT born with hatred of other human beings. It’s learned, it’s a product of our environment & experiences, but we are not born to hate. Lacrosse holds a special place in the hearts of all who participate (players, coaches, administratively, referees, team managers, and even our special fans). As with national sentiment, this conversation & change is long overdue. This is not a red or blue political statement.
Using the Zoom platform to record them, we will stream the discussions over popular lacrosse platforms. I wish it to be seen by as many world wide eyeballs as possible, so if you have a website that would like to carry it, just let me know.
For full transparency, depending on panelist availability, we record on Sunday or Monday. The editing team only corrects any technical mistakes (someone disconnects, etc.) and not our discussion.
Our goal is to welcome viewers right back here to LaxAllStars.com and other lacrosse-focused platforms every Wednesday at 8 p.m. EST/5 p.m. PST. The curated panel of guests will include voices from all corners of the lacrosse community and all walks of life.
Thank you for your willingness to take this leap of faith with me. I don’t believe any effort we make can fail since nobody has anything to measure us by.
Together we CAN effect positive change.
