Empower Lacrosse Club is a local, non-profit organization that supports girls lacrosse players, coaches and programs in the Upper Valley of New Hampshire and Vermont. Empower believes in developing multi-sport athletes with a focus on the whole player and their long-term development. Our goal is never to lose sight of the importance of character in building strong, healthy, well-rounded athletes.
It is also our goal to support local lacrosse organizations who are offering outstanding opportunities for our players.
LOCAL GIRLS. LOCAL ORGANIZATIONS. LOCAL MENTORS.
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 with need-based financial assistance for Upper Valley club teams, clinics, or camp fees (where financial assistance is not already offered).
- FINANCIAL ASSISTANCE FOR COACHES: Empower provides financial assistance to local 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 Upper Valley girls lacrosse teams to bring in speakers 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 Upper Valley teams to bring in coaches with college coaching or playing experience (or specialized expertise in a certain area) for one or two practice sessions.
