support the city of Bridgeport’s most vulnerable and underserved youth population,” Wilson said. “I feel that Bridgeport youth are affected by not even knowing what is available to them, apart from violence and poverty. For many families with children interested in playing a sport, the decision often must be made to pay bills or take on an extracurricular activity.” As a member of the Urban Lacrosse Alliance, a US Lacrosse program designed to enable qualified affiliates the ability to address needs unique to their lacrosse programming through education and resources, BYL has received $5,000 in support from 2014-2016 via in-kind donations and stipends toward transportation costs, registration fees and more. Thanks to US Lacrosse, the Rusty Red Foundation, state residents, fundraising events and Fairfield County corporations, Wilson is able to supply new and used equipment to his players. “Our relationship with US Lacrosse has been a huge part of our success and has guided our principles and growth every step of the way, through the national insurance program, equipment grants, leadership training and access to US Lacrosse staff and training clinics,” Wilson said. “We are very thankful to have also received financial support from our local Connecticut chapter. Thanks to the chapter and Phillip Schneider, this spring, seven of our past youth and high school players are now on their way to becoming Level 1-certified coaches after participating in a local CDP clinic.”


Not only are BYL players attaining success on the field — many have gone on to play at the University of Bridgeport — but also they have grown as individuals through the programming offered, including the required S.T.E.A.M. (science, technology, engineering, art, math) academic program, SAT prep courses and college interview training.


“It is a great honor to see the maturity of this program in our short existence,” Wilson said. “These kids are resilient if not relentless.” USL
