Giving the gift of lacrosse and responsibly growing the game around the world is now a little bit easier thanks to a strategic partnership between industry leading media outlet Lacrosse All Stars and the Give & Go Foundation, a 501(c)(3) non-profit founded by professional players Adam Ghitelman and Scott Ratliff. The two organizations recently began collaborating in unison to raise awareness about lacrosse and empower new participants in underprivileged communities across the globe.
Players and fans who visit LaxAllStars.com can expect the same high quality lacrosse coverage plus new opportunities to help create positive social change. Give & Go is now well-positioned with a corporate partner equally as dedicated to growing the game, and the best part is we’re already taking action.Scott Ratliff, Co-Founder of The Give & Go Foundation and a newly appointed business advisor to Lacrosse All Stars.
Ratliff and fellow PLL Archers teammate Evan Connell are headed on a mission trip to Central America this week. The duo is set to host a series of free educational lacrosse clinics starting on March 30 in Playa Samara, Costa Rica, in conjunction with the Student Cultural Exchange. Ratliff and Connell continue on to Bocos Del Toro, Panama, where they will grow lacrosse in conjunction with Lax The Nations, Wednesday through Friday, April 3-5.
The new multi-year partnership empowers Give & Go Foundation ambassadors to focus on delivering free lacrosse instruction, equipment, and continuing education to those in need while Lacrosse All Stars manages marketing and fundraising initiatives. LaxAllStars.com website visitors are now offered several ways to get involved, including options to donate funds directly to the non-profit or give a complete lacrosse stick to an underprivileged youth athlete in need.
For us, it’s all about empowering the next generation of lacrosse players around the world. Our partnership with Lacrosse All Stars exemplifies the style of collaboration that’s needed in our game to take it to the next level.Adam Ghitelman, who co-founded Give & Go Foundation alongside Ratliff while teaching the game in Barcelona.
