Why We Organized the Give & Go Foundation

What We Offer
International Lacrosse Clinics
It is our belief that the sport of lacrosse, specifically organized lacrosse teams, has the power to heal and help communities grow closer together. Being apart of a lacrosse team has made a massive impact on the life of many Native American, American, and Canadian kids and adults. The sport of lacrosse promotes teamwork, physical exercise, discipline and communication. By sharing this sport with underserved programs we will be able to add massive value to the lives of the players whom we connect with.
Coaching Abroad & Personal Development
Traveling to a new country and giving back to the community there is an incredible way to promote personal growth while also giving back to the world. Many lacrosse players have the desire to share the sport and see the world but do not have the network or the resources to do so. We plan to help provide these opportunities to people who have proven they have a commitment to giving back and the potential to make a meaningful impact on the people that they coach.
The greatest challenge many underserved lacrosse programs face is access to proper equipment. The lack of lacrosse retail outside of North America makes it very expensive to acquire proper equipment to play the game, and more importantly to share the game with the youth. Our intention is to empower these programs to share the sport with the youth by providing free gear, coaching, and opportunities to play.
