US Lacrosse today announced that 136 schools and civic organizations across 38 states have been selected as 2013 Physical Education and Soft Stick Lacrosse Equipment Grant recipients. Each organization will receive modified “soft” lacrosse sticks and balls, as well as instructional guides and DVDs to help support the introduction of the sport in their curriculums.
In addition, US Lacrosse has awarded eight workshop grants to school districts and community-based organizations in which US Lacrosse trainers provide in-service training. Each of these workshops could have up to 30 schools and organizations in attendance, each of which also receives a full set of soft stick equipment. Workshops were awarded to school districts and organizations in Colorado, Illinois, Maine, Arkansas, Nebraska, Florida, Texas and Oklahoma.
