PLAYER LEADERSHIP DEVELOPMENT

South Windsor Girls’ Lacrosse is dedicated to cultivating confidence and leadership among our players. By creating opportunities to foster leadership skills and personal development, our program aims to empower our athletes and to nurture qualities that contribute to well-rounded individuals. We hope that the values instilled in these young women extend far beyond the boundaries of the playing field.

VOLUNTEER COACH

We are incredibly fortunate to have the support of the South Windsor High School Girls’ Lacrosse players who serve as our Athlete Volunteer Coaches. These players are not just skilled athletes; they are role models who epitomize the essence of sportsmanship, dedication, and skill. For years, high school athletes have been the driving force behind our In-House introduction to lacrosse program. Their infectious enthusiasm for the sport creates an environment where younger players don't just learn the game; they fall in love with it. 

Our Athlete Volunteer Coaches gain invaluable experience in communication, mentorship, and team management—skills that extend far beyond lacrosse. As they guide and inspire, they are simultaneously developing into leaders who understand the importance of fostering a positive and inclusive team culture.

REFEREE

Our referees are student-athletes. These are paid positions. Our program not only promotes sportsmanship on the lacrosse field but also provides unique leadership opportunities. By becoming a referee, student-athletes have the chance to refine skills such as decision-making, communication, and teamwork—all essential attributes that contribute to their growth both on and off the field.

ATHLETE ADVISORY BOARD


*New for the 2024 spring season.

We are excited to introduce a dynamic initiative aimed at amplifying the voices of our athletes—the Athlete Advisory Board. We believe that by empowering our athletes to share their perspectives and ideas, we can collectively create an environment that reflects the values of our community. Their primary mission is to act as representatives for their respective teams and grades, channeling valuable input, feedback, and insights that contribute to the continuous improvement of the athlete experience.

*Members are selected through a team vote at the beginning of the spring season.

INTERNSHIP PROGRAM

*New for the 2024 spring season.

This is our first year launching our internship program which we believe will have an incredible impact on our organization while offering a valuable experience to the young women within our league. We look forward to the positive contributions, growth, and meaningful learning experiences that the internship program will undoubtedly bring to both our organization and its participants. Emphasizing a unique approach, these internships are athlete-designed and athlete-led projects, ensuring a dynamic and tailored learning experience. Interns must be a current player or alum of the South Windsor Girls’ Lacrosse program.

*The 2024 Internship has been filled. We encourage you to stay tuned for future internship openings.
