BALTIMORE -- The Billings Scorpions Lacrosse Club is one of 102 programs nationwide to receive a development grant through the US Lacrosse 2012 First Stick Program.
Billings Scorpions Lacrosse is in its second year of existence.
The First Stick program is geared for new and developing youth and high school lacrosse teams nationwide. The funds will be used to help grow our local high school lacrosse team to include playing equipment, coaches and referees trainings and safety equipment.
"We’re excited that teams from all over the country, including some areas where lacrosse is just beginning to appear, are among this group of award recipients," said Morgan Cook, USL’s First Stick program manager. "We look forward to getting to know each of these new teams and partnering in their development over the next two years."
Applicant groups were required to demonstrate a financial need and verify their status as a community based youth team or organization, or an elementary, middle or high school team in order to be considered.
