Youth Night

We are proud to be partnering with City Lax and Harlem Lacrosse to support increased visibility and access to the sport of lacrosse within a broad range of communities. Both organizations are dedicated to providing opportunities for their student-athletes both on and off the field to positively impact their lives through lacrosse and to develop skills for success in lacrosse and beyond.

City Lax            Harlem Lacrosse

Athletes Unlimited is proud to provide opportunities throughout the season for engagement with City Lax and Harlem Lacrosse student-athletes including meet and greets, virtual conversations, and more.

To celebrate this partnership, our game on Sunday, July 25 at 3 p.m. ET will be dedicated to City Lax and Harlem Lacrosse and will be easily accessible to all audiences on Facebook and YouTube.

If you want to join us in person for this special game, you can purchase tickets here.

Women in Sport

Athletes Unlimited is proud to be part of the tremendous growth of women’s sports. Fans watching from home and attending in person will have the opportunity to hear and learn about the evolution of women in sports and how far we’ve come. 

 

At Athletes Unlimited we work every day to continue to advance women’s sports and to support our athletes on and off the field. Through our Player Executive Committees our athletes weigh in on decisions large and small-from our scoring system to player recruitment to uniforms, and everything in between. Our athletes also participate in the profits of the league-directly benefiting from the value they help create.

We recognize that our athletes bring their whole selves to the game. That’s why we work with our athletes to meet their childcare needs during the season so they don’t have to choose between family and career.

We look forward to celebrating our athletes and the growth of women’s sports more broadly during our game on Saturday, July 31 at 12 p.m. ET. Tune-in from home on FS1 or join us in person by purchasing tickets here.

Athlete Causes

To support the development of athletes as civic leaders, Athletes Unlimited has launched our Athlete Causes program in partnership with Give Lively and the Give Lively Foundation. This program enables each of our athletes to play for the organization and cause of their choice during the season. At the end of the season, the Give Lively Foundation will make a grant equal to 50% of the athlete’s end-of-season bonus to their non-profit. 

Organizations selected by the athletes this season address issues ranging from racial justice to the environment, mental health and expanding access to youth sports. Our athletes also have the opportunity to raise additional funds as well as visibility for their organization through promotion on their social channels and Give Lively’s’ amazing fundraising tools. 

As Katie Carter Gutierrez, one of the athletes in our inaugural Volleyball season, shared, “The Athlete Causes Program is so important because it gave me a chance to voice something that I care a lot about besides my sport. As a mother, I have faced challenges that being an athlete helped me overcome. But more importantly – being a mother has made me an even better athlete. The organization I supported, &Mother, is all about breaking the barriers for women in pro careers and making it possible to be a mother and be a pro!”

We are so excited to showcase these deeply meaningful partnerships during our game on Sunday, Aug. 8 at 4:30 p.m. ET on Fox Sports (FS2). Want to support our athletes and their causes? Tickets are also available for this game and can be purchased here.

Pride Night

Athletes Unlimited is proud to celebrate the LGBTQ+ community and promote inclusion for all people. We look forward to hosting the league’s first Pride Night during our inaugural lacrosse season. This theme game  will feature original content to be aired on broadcast and shown in-stadium. Our Love is Unlimited tee will be available for purchase and we also look forward to sharing some fun fan giveaways. 

 

We are proud to provide an  inclusive atmosphere for fans, players, staff and all who come to support Athletes Unlimited’s lacrosse season. Mark your calendars for Saturday, August 14 – you’ll be able to catch the games at 3:00 p.m. ET on Athletes Unlimited Facebook and YouTubchannels or join us in person by purchasing tickets today here.
