Empower Lacrosse Club is a local, non-profit organization that supports girls lacrosse players and coaches from New Hampshire and Vermont, prioritizing events in the Upper Valley.
Empower believes in developing multi-sport athletes with a focus on the whole player and long-term development. Our goal is never to lose sight of the importance of character in our support of strong, healthy, well-rounded athletes.
In order to achieve this mission, Empower offers grants and financial assistance to girls lacrosse players and coaches in the following areas:
- FINANCIAL ASSISTANCE FOR PLAYERS: Empower supports families from New Hampshire and Vermont with need-based financial assistance, prioritizing Upper Valley girls lacrosse club teams, clinics, or camp fees (where financial assistance is not already offered).
- FINANCIAL ASSISTANCE FOR COACHES: Empower provides financial assistance to New Hampshire and Vermont youth, club, and high school coaches to attend coaching clinics to deepen their knowledge of the game and to learn the most current best practices for teaching.
- CHARACTER, LEADERSHIP AND TEAM BUILDING GRANTS: Empower provides grants for New Hampshire and Vermont girls lacrosse teams to host speakers or guest coaches that amplify “healthy voices” with a focus on development of character, leadership skills, team building and the whole-player.
- GUEST COACHING GRANTS: Empower offers grants to New Hampshire and Vermont teams to host guest coaches with college coaching or playing experience (or specialized expertise in a certain area) for one or two practice sessions.
