I can't believe how much the girls have learned this session and you can see it in their play. My daughter is in 4th grade and she came home from school one day and said she wanted to play lax. This is the first sport she has ever shown any interest in. She loves it! I can tell you for sure that she would not have such an awesome attitude if it weren't for IGLA and the great LZ coaches.

I was really happy to see the way the team developed. I wish I had video of the first and last game to show the girls just how much progress they made! And hopefully we infused a love of the sport into most of them such that they continue to play. I am quite impressed with everyone involved in developing the girls lacrosse teams. Many thanks to you for investing an incredible amount of time to help propel the sport forward! We can never thank you enough for everything you are doing to develop the sport!"
