U21 World Championship team
Origins Leadership is dedicated to growing the game of lacrosse in new places, both locally and internationally. In 2022, Origins Leadership is serving as the fiscal sponsor of the Uganda U21 Men's team. The Uganda Lacrosse Association (ULA) is planning to send its first-ever U21 team to the World Championships in Limerick, Ireland in August 2022. This tournament represents an excellent opportunity to build off the success of the Uganda men’s senior team that participated in the World Championships in 2014 in Colorado and 2018 in Israel.
The U21 World Championship will provide:
The experience of a lifetime for players
Expansion of lacrosse in Uganda
Preparation for future Uganda national teams
Here's how you can help
Player Sponsorship $2500
Create a personal connection to one of the U21 players by providing all of the expenses for a specific player to play on the U21 team including training, travel, equipment, accommodation, meals, and more. You'll get a photo, bio, and message from a specific player on the U21 Uganda team.
Provide the cost for one player or coach to travel from Uganda to Ireland to represent their country at the U21 World Championships.
Provide a stick
It's not easy to get a lacrosse stick to Uganda, but you can help make it happen. It just may be the stick that scores the first goal for the U21 team in Ireland.
U.S. lacrosse club & team sponsors
If you are a U.S. lacrosse club or team, you have the opportunity to dedicate your spring season to something bigger. Get your entire team or club behind the U21 Uganda lacrosse team by supporting the U21 team's trip to the World Championships in Ireland.
Lacrosse equipment is not available in Uganda, so oftentimes players use heavily worn and outdated equipment. You can help provide players with a new set of quality equipment to compete in the World Championships.
Every donation makes a difference! Choose the amount that works best for you. The U21 team is grateful for all support to help make dreams like this possible.
