American sports are experiencing a three part collapse which has caused
athletes to give up on organized athletics in favor of recreational activities
and minimally competitive games.

Youth athletes are unhappy playing

Sports are too physically demanding

Parents and coaches create a poor atmosphere

American participation in outdoor activities drops by age. 70% of athletes quit team sports By age 13.

Lacrosse has seen year over year growth in player participation. American Lacrosse has set all time highs in involvement as more states sanction play.

Bowling (2nd) and Mini Golf/Putt Putt (4th) represent two
of the five most popular crossover activities*. Both
activities fulfill the top three goals American’s list as
motivation for engaging in activities.

*Activities that accomplish multiple participant goals,
e.g. being with friends, getting exercise, and spending time outdoors.

Create a space and form of recreational Lacrosse that capitalizes on primary engagement motivators while minimizing barriers to entry. The solution must be inviting to athletes and non-athletes alike and make playing Lacrosse easy.
