The Michigan Chapter of US Lacrosse offers yearly grants to help promote the growth of the sport of lacrosse in the State.
Grants are awarded for start-up teams within their first 4 years of operation, lacrosse coaches wishing to participate in lacrosse related professional development, and lacrosse officials wishing to participate in lacrosse related professional development.
Because of the focus on growing the sport sources, grants do not support established teams, commercial ventures, or non-lacrosse activities.
