In tandem with Athletes Unlimited Futures, Athletes Unlimited has launched Athletes Unlimited All-Access. The program brings together the Athletes Unlimited professional athlete network alongside local organizations to focus on creating access to the sport in underserved areas targeting four major cities in 2022.
All-Access has two key missions:
- Introduce girls from underserved communities in several regions across the U.S. to lacrosse through free Athletes Unlimited pro player-led sessions. These sessions will be located with ease of access, whether from public or provided transportation
- Inspire a deeper interest in lacrosse and inspire the participants off the field. We want to create organic relationships that we can continue to build upon.
The sessions will incorporate both on field training and off-field enrichment programming. We will focus on basic skills and proper technique as an introduction to the sport, such as small sided play, defensive positioning, offensive and defensive concepts, and more. Off-field enrichment programming will focus on cultural competency and will be led by Athletes Unlimited staff.
