Arlington, VA – There is no greater honor in lacrosse than representing a country of your heritage on the international stage. The goal of the Women’s National Team staff is to ensure that all the players selected to the team get the opportunity to fulfill this dream. Please read the following message from Head Coach Sarah Walsh, regarding the party benefitting the Women’s programme at Ireland’s Four Courts in Arlington, VA on 11 March (flyer below).
“The World Cup is being held in Surrey, England and is significantly more expensive than in years past. It will cost each player a minimum of $2500 to participate in our one week training camp and the two week tournament this upcoming July. The cost is prohibitive for many of the players, especially ones pursuing a higher level of education.
Kick off your St. Patrick’s Day celebrations and help support the Ireland Women’s National Lacrosse Team on their road to the 2017 World Cup! Mingle with national team players and staff while enjoying live Irish music and drink specials. There will also be custom team apparel for sale, and fantastic online silent auction items including:
- A private training session and tour at Under Armour for a group of six athletes
- Being a Princeton Tiger for the Day with the women’s lacrosse team
- A week at a beach house in Plum Island, MA
- Three night stay for four in a beautiful condo at Carmel Valley Ranch Resort in Monterey County, California
- Many, many others.
Our team is composed of 18 talented players based in Ireland, the UK, and the US who are making a difference on and off of the field. Below are just three of the worthy players you would be helping with your donation:
- a candidate for PhD in Equine Sciences at University College Dublin
- a sophomore studying Economics at University College Dublin
- a candidate for Masters in Genetic Biology at University College Dublin
Please help us give these players the opportunity to compete in Surrey this July A strong showing by the Irish Women’s team will give us a solid foundation to build a more extensive program in Ireland. Eventually, we want to see women’s lacrosse thrive in Ireland as it does in the United States and grow the game internationally. Your help can start us down that path.
So whether you come for a pint and spread the news about Ireland Lacrosse, buy some gear, make a donation, or bid on the silent auction, WE APPRECIATE IT! All donations are tax-deductible through the 501c3 fundraising arm of Ireland Lacrosse North America.”
