Our Mission

Founded in 2003, Homegrown Lacrosse, a Twin-Cities-based 501(c)(3) nonprofit organization, works to create positive change in the lives of young people through lacrosse programming. Our mission is to build a community that inspires and empowers youth to excel in life and lacrosse. We achieve this through a wide variety of programs designed to develop character, build self-confidence, and instill a sense of community.

Our lacrosse program offerings include nationally recognized summer camps, year-round skill training, leagues, tournaments, special events, travel team experiences, an in-school physical education program, inner-city after-school programs, a youth leadership development program, scholarship fund, and several other “Grow the Game” initiatives including training of community leaders, coaches, and referees.

Each works to provide valuable life and perspective-changing experiences for thousands of young people and provide support to over 120 community lacrosse organizations each year from youth to post collegiate, boys and girls, and men and women.
