US LACROSSE PACIFIC NORTHWEST REGION


THE FRONT DOOR OF LACROSSE


Seattle group uses US Lacrosse grant to buy gear, hire instructors and


fund summer camps for Boys & Girls Club programs BY MAUREEN CROMER


US Lacrosse, in its mission to provide national structure and resources to encourage the growth and participation of lacrosse in underrepresented communities, created the Diversity and Inclusion National Grant Program in 2014. The program provides funding to qualifi ed organizations that initiate and continue programs or projects that promote lacrosse participation and education. This year, the Seattle Metropolitan Youth Lacrosse Association was one of many clubs around the country awarded a Diversity and Inclusion Grant. The Seattle Metropolitan Youth Lacrosse Association was awarded $5,000 to help fund the continuation of a lacrosse program recently established at the Rainier Vista Boys & Girls Club in the Central District of Seattle, Washington. “We want to make lacrosse available to more people in Seattle,” said Peter Blue, president of the SMYLA. “We are still building a foundation for the sport here.”
