Send Youth Iroquois to Lacrosse World Games

$1,805 $16,945
Raised Remaining


This project allows the Iroquois, founders of lacrosse, to compete in the World Games as part of a leadership seminar that teaches coaching skills and traditions of lacrosse to spread on to youth.

What is the issue, problem, or challenge?

Before 1990, the Iroquois were banned from competing at the World Lacrosse Games. Now reinstated, they are the only all Native team sanctioned to compete in any sport internationally. Given their unique legacy, they serve as a source of inspiration for many Native youth. The seminar will equip players with the skills to affect change toward healthy living among youth in Native communities. Participation in Coquitlam will serve to strengthen this cause and support a legacy.

How will this project solve this problem?

We send 25 Iroquois players to a training/education session to develop lacrosse skills and leadership ability, along with techniques for coaching youth athletes. After, players are sent to represent Indigenous Nations at the 2008 World Games.

Potential Long Term Impact

The project will develop the capacity of Iroquois players to inspire change among youth on and off the field in Native communities.
