"As a current high school coach and club director, I feel very passionate about using lacrosse to develop character and leadership in young student-athletes. As our sport continues to grow, the need to shape talented players into the next generation of brave and inspired leaders also grows. The WPLL's Futures Program is poised as an incredibly unique opportunity for young women to dynamically develop, both on and off the field. I am extremely grateful and excited to be a part of the process for Pennsylvania!"
