Mini Sticks Mentorship Program

Mini Sticks Mentorship Program
“A good coach can change a game, a great coach can change a life”

The goal of the Mini Sticks Mentorship Program is to recruit student athletes to be a part of a special community that helps put the FUN in FUNdamentals and gets more kids picking up lacrosse sticks. Ideal candidates are athletes who wish to GROW - as players, as people, and the sport of lacrosse itself.  We believe that coaching a sport helps better understand it as a player. We believe volunteering your time and giving back helps develop you as a person. We believe getting more kids to try lacrosse helps grow the game that has given us so much. We are looking for others who feel the same!

As a Mini Sticks Mentorship participant, you will be provided support and guidance combined with an opportunity to coach Mini Sticks, a program for 4-8 year olds to have fun and learn the sport of lacrosse.  We want the players in Mini Sticks seeing kind, positive role models in coaching positions who can share their lacrosse knowledge and ability and inspire kids to be their best self.  Other benefits of being in the program include opportunities to:

- Develop leadership skills
Build confidence in yourself by building confidence in others
Learn how to breakdown and teach the game, helping develop your own understanding
Help grow the game you love
Be a role model for young players
Earn community service hours by volunteering 
- Be a part of a special community of athletes coming together to be a part of something greater than themselves

Expectations for applicants:

  • Coach at least 1 session of Mini Sticks in 1 year

  • Arrive to assigned sessions on time, dressed appropriately (i.e. athletic clothing, sneakers, Shine on gear) ready to set up

  • Be familiar with the curriculum before you arrive (it will be prepared and shared with you prior to the session)

  • Be ready to engage, educate, encourage, energize! Be a positive role model and give your ALL the entire time you are with the kids

If Mini Sticks Mentorship Program participants understand and uphold the culture we are trying to build and perform well, they may be offered paid opportunities such as Mini Sticks Summer Camp Coach or Youth Lacrosse Official.
