Review for Dream Big!, Newton, MA, USA

Rating: 5 stars  

We have been so fortunate to have had lacrosse projects funded thanks to the generosity of Dream Big! The support that Dream Big! has given has helped provide sticks, balls, cones, pinnies, and nets to allow over 100 girls (so far!) in the city of Malden the opportunity to learn and advance their skills in the sport of lacrosse. Many of these girls haven't played sports in the past, or haven't found a sport that has interested them. It's great to fill that void and give these young girls confidence and excitement about a team sport and physical activity.
I'm currently running a clinic that has brought in many new faces, but also several repeat participants. The Malden High School Girls Lacrosse team will start to see the benefits of this outreach and growth of the game in our city next season. The high school girls also get to give back to the community through volunteering at these clinics.
I am lucky to be able to reach so many children in the community through teaching and coaching and as a high school coach, I've wanted to grow the game of lacrosse to younger students. Dream Big! has helped make this possible and made a big impact on the girls of Malden.
