Athletics Changing Lives

17 Aug

This Denver Post article is a great example of how athletic participation can truly change someone’s life.  City Lax, Denver Lacrosse program which is one of 14 programs in nine states participating in U.S. Lacrosse’s BRIDGE program.  BRIDGE is designed to use the sport to bring positive influences and life-skill lessons to youth in communities not previously exposed to the sport.

The concepts of positive influence and life-skill lessons are concepts that transcend all sports, and are important to reinforce in a child’s life.  We need more programs like BRIDGE in our inner-cities because of the amazing opportunities they provide!
