US Lacrosse Hosting Event in Maryland

Feb 13, 2018

USMC Sports Leadership Academy presents Built to Lead Lacrosse and will host a free event Saturday, February 24 at Tierney Field at US Lacrosse national headquarters (2 Loveton Circle, Sparks Glencoe, MD 21152).

USMC’s Built to Lead Lacrosse provides participants with first-class instruction from elite lacrosse coaches in the area. But through a partnership with the United States Marine Corps it also provides participants with the leadership intangibles that will make them Built to Lead.

At the event, participants will take part in skill sessions focusing on different, vital lacrosse skills. They will also receive a Built to Lead Evaluation at the end of the day. Between skill sessions and evaluation, participants will have the opportunity to be challenged, motivated, and to interact with members of the U.S. Marine Corps and learn key skills from the men and women who best exemplify what it means to lead.

Jim Rood, Owner and President of MD Wolfpack Lacrosse Club, will serve as the head coach of the event.

The free event begins at 9 a.m. and concludes at 4 p.m. following the awards presentations and closing ceremony. The seven top performers will receive All-Academy medals. All participants receive a USMC Sports Leadership Academy t-shirt and free lunch as well as a camp swag bag. The event is open to anyone between the age of 15 and 19 years of age. Limited registration is available at

Every player needs these skills. Every coach wants these players. Do you have what it takes?  Are you Built to Lead?
