Last week, New Hampshire-based club lacrosse organization 4 Leaf announced that it would be launching a national girls lacrosse program.
In an area where other club teams like the NH Tomahawks and Granite State Elite already operate, the 4 Leaf directors still felt that there was room for another girls lacrosse training organization to operate alongside their boys' division.
“We got approached in the winter to start doing some clinics,” said 4 Leaf Lacrosse vice president Scott Singer. “We ran a few clinics during the winter because we had the right staff for it. Quite frankly, we didn't know what to expect or have crazy high expectations.
"Throughout the course of the winter, we ended up having over 500 girls attend our clinics. So, just with the sheer volume of kids that were interested in coming and training with us far exceeded expectations. We would have been happy with 50 girls training with us. There was just a lot of families asking for more and asking if we could start teams, and that was the direction we were going in.”
