USA Athletes International has been selected as the sponsoring organization to represent the United States in the lacrosse tour 2018 Great Britain Invasion Friendship Series.
USA Athletes International is responsible for the selection of the coaches and athletes that will be on the US team. Andrew Carey, from Huntingdon College, has agreed to coach this team.
This event is an excellent opportunity for athletes to foster international goodwill and friendship among nations, while also promoting the game of lacrosse. With the exception of the US Olympic program, there are few opportunities for athletes to experience the competition, history and culture of other countries on an international level. Established in 1992, USA Athletes International is a nonprofit organization dedicated to giving amateur athletes such an opportunity.
“Sport has the power to change the world. It has the power to unite people in a way that little else does. Sport can awaken hope where there was previously only despair.” Nelson Mandela.
This is not a tryout situation, but an official invitation to be part of the team. I feel so honored to be part of this once in a lifetime opportunity.
