Grants to USA K-12 schools for sets of soft lacrosse equipment. Funding is specifically intended to assist physical education teachers who are willing and eager to open a lacrosse unit in the phys-ed classroom. These grants are limited only to physical education classes.

The US Lacrosse Soft Stick Lacrosse Equipment Grant provides 30 soft lacrosse sticks (15 blue sticks and 15 red sticks) and 30 soft lacrosse balls.

US Lacrosse seeks to foster a national lacrosse community that encourages understanding, appreciation and acceptance of all within its membership, volunteer base and staff. US Lacrosse believes that broad representation and participation add significant value to the lacrosse experience of each of us, and that these valued experiences are enhanced by embracing underrepresented and underserved communities.

Soft-Stick Equipment Grants are available to schools that are eager and willing to start a lacrosse unit in the physical education classroom. All other non-profit organizations should apply to the US Lacrosse First Stick Program, which provides equipment grants for boys' and girls' lacrosse programming.

The PE teacher, Athletic Director, or Principal should complete this application on behalf of their school. Parents and volunteers can encourage these individuals to apply, but should not complete this application if they are not an employee at the school.
