The Brooklyn Battery Lacrosse Club has it's first weekend in the books.
We have created a youth organization that both listens and delivers on it's mission to serve the youth of Brooklyn. We have stripped away the secrecy of decision making, and we function 100% in the best of our players and parents.
We are accountable to each and every person who has entrusted us with their child's safety, fitness and education, and we take this charge lightly. Nor will we ever.
We are a modern, nimble organization that has created a scalable model for growth that hasn't been seen in urban youth lacrosse (according to US Lacrosse).
We have created an organization with such a clear vision of leadership and action that we won the National US Lacrosse First Stick Grant before we ever put a player on the field.
We have created opportunities in neighborhoods that have never seen lacrosse. We have created an organization that reflects the diversity and vibrancy of Brooklyn.
We have forged relationships with some of great youth lacrosse programs in the area such as Brooklyn Prospect Charter School and Harlem Lacrosse. These local connections are critical for all of our success.
We continue to vibrant Board Members, Coaches and Volunteers. Embracing the ideas of others has allowed us to grow in ways we had never envisioned.
With our Fall season starting this weekend, there is no time to pause as Spring is just around the corner.
