WINNERS Lacrosse offers a variety of programs throughout the year (Ages 5-14) for DC area youth to learn the game of Lacrosse and the character skills that come along with playing sports. All WINNERS programs are free of charge for participants, and they provide all necessary equipment as well.
WINNERS Lacrosse Goal is to teach boys and girls the game we love while also allowing them to learn and grow in a safe and FUN environment.
One of the biggest challenges for WINNERS boys and girls is getting to and from games SAFELY and effectively. Given the growth of the program, we are now all over the city, and we want to ensure the players and their parents feel safe and secure getting to each “away” game in the spring season.
I am sure you remember riding on buses to games without a second thought. Some people would argue that was one of the greatest parts of playing on a team. We are asking for help to give our kids this experience of the ride and camaraderie that will allow them to play this great game without transportation obstacles and worries.
Matt Breslin and Lyndsey Munoz have started a crowdfunding campaign with a goal of raising $5,000 to help each team get to their games on a bus. This project will cost approximately $25,000-$30,000. Their goal is to raise $5,000 on Tuesday, November 29th to get one step closer to that goal.
Matt Breslin has been Executive Director of The Washington Inner City Lacrosse Foundation since May 2011. Matt has coached and worked with lacrosse players of all ages since he graduated from Duke University in 2001. He has coached at the top of the high school game (Gonzaga College High School from 2002-2005) and the college game (assistant coach at Georgetown University in 2010) and is the founder of Breakout Lacrosse, a youth-based lacrosse club in Washington, DC.
Lyndsey Munoz (Program Director) grew up in Crofton, MD, a 2010 graduate of St. Mary’s High School in Annapolis, MD. Her passion for lacrosse earned her a scholarship to play at Stanford University. She also led Cardinal to the best season in school history in 2013. During her four years, she volunteered with an organization called Bay Area Women’s Sports Initiative (BAWSI), aiming to empower young girls through sport. She has also coached at the youth level since graduating high school in 2010. Lyndsey is entering her third year as Program Director of WINNERS Lacrosse.
