Why Support Westside?
- While lacrosse is a state sanctioned sport in 25 states, Kansas and Missouri are not two of those states. Therefore, resources to grow the game like access to fields and equipment are more limited and costly.
- Many parents of players are willing to volunteer to help in ways they can but do not have enough lacrosse knowledge to coach. Therefore, coaching expense is often greater for lacrosse than other youth sports.
- Educating PE teachers and running clinics take time but also resources. Stick loan programs to PE teachers to teach lacrosse are a great approach but those sticks need to be purchased.
- The girls that work hard at lacrosse and rise to the top in KC should have the same opportunities to go far with lacrosse as those in other parts of the country. Unfortunately, the opportunity to develop the crucial game level experience that comes from playing very competitive games is much more abundant in other cities. Therefore, the elite players in KC need to travel a lot for games. The expense of doing so prohibits some girls that really like lacrosse from participating. We would like to subsidize that.
