WE NEED YOUR HELP!
The drastic impacts on school budgets over the past few years has greatly diminished the funding and support for programs in art, music, and physical education in our elementary and middle schools. Evidence continually supports that involvement in these three subject areas contributes to increased achievement in both academics and the overall well-being of young children.
The first exposure many kids have to sports is often through experiences at their schools. Lacrosse is a sport that many children will never have an opportunity to try because it is a non-traditional sport that requires specialized equipment.
With your help, we would like to change that!
Through a program called Soft Lacrosse, educators will be able to teach the basic skills of lacrosse utilizing specially molded gender-neutral plastic sticks and soft balls. Included with the program is a curriculum guide specifically developed by US Lacrosse. Also included is a DVD for PE teachers that includes information about the origins of lacrosse, variations of the game, basic skills required, sample drills, activities and details about the rules and execution of the game.
We are asking businesses and individuals in South Lake County to support our Sticks are for Kids program by providing funding to purchase soft lacrosse packages to be distributed to the various elementary and middle schools. The cost of a package is $500.00. The package includes:
36 soft lacrosse sticks
2 dozen soft lacrosse balls
2 collapsible goals
100% of the proceeds will go toward these soft lacrosse programs for the area schools. As part of your sponsorship package, you will receive recognition as a sponsor of Lake Lacrosse on our website as well as an opportunity to present the packages to the schools on behalf of your business. You will receive a thank-you letter from the School that you are sponsoring. Lake Lacrosse is a Non-Profit 501-C3 organization, so your donation is tax deductible.
