Fields of Growth has announced the dates and is currently accepting registrations for two weeks of LVC programs in Jamaica .
This winter’s LVC participants are going to be part of a very special time in the history of Jamaica Lacrosse, as they will be helping to lay the foundation for the Taino Cup – the first ever structured high school lacrosse season and championships run during the academic year.
Interested volunteers will have the option to chose between two winter sessions: December 26 – January 1, or January 2 – 8. Those interested in a longer experience have the ability to stay for a full two weeks.
Fields of Growth founder, Kevin Dugan, will be directing the programs
These are going to be unique and special sessions, because they will precede the start of the first ever Taino Cup fixtures. This winter’s volunteers are going to be a major help in ensuring a good start to the HS season in Jamaica. Our main objective will be to strengthen the base of the youth and high school teams in the lead up to the spring.
About the program:
The Lacrosse Volunteer Corps program enables lacrosse enthusiasts to Coach, Serve and Learn in Jamaica & Uganda. LVC trips take place over winter and summer breaks.
The links below are designed to give prospective volunteers and their parents all the information they need to understand the LVC experience.We want participants to be comfortable, excited and prepared for their experience. The LVC is a growing Family of Friends, with close to 250 alumni, some of whom were NCAA Players of the Year and some of whom never even played college lacrosse. Your lacrosse ability does not matter, what matters is that you have a big, humble heart and are ready to Coach, Serve and Learn.
