Since opening an Instagram account for the Casey Powell World a Lacrosse Foundation (CPWLF) I have been overwhelmed with how quickly the lacrosse family “out there” connects with each other. We are a brand new 501(c)(3) not for profit and we want you to know about us because we want to help you. We want to help it grow in your town, strengthen what you have there, and support our lacrosse families personally where we can.
Our goal is to join individual lacrosse players, teams, clubs, officials, coaches, and existing lacrosse foundations under the umbrella of the CP World Lacrosse Foundation thus creating a family that can be very visible and powerful for the sport. There are so many lacrosse players out there with Instagram accounts. This is a great way for us to initially introduce ourselves so you know we exist. The devotion to lacrosse runs deep as several of the Instagram accounts refer to their beloved game in their account names. I saw the use of the word “lax” and “lacrosse” connected with their name, position, and jersey number. I also observed “lax” combined with so many words. Ie laxlife, laxitup. Then there were words like Mr. Swag, the Beast, stick shack and tribe.
With Instagram we are essentially compiling the “tribe” to support the efforts of the World Lacrosse Foundation. Our mission is to support lacrosse nationally and internationally – the sport you love. The CPWLF is working hard in the field to support lacrosse families in need and to spread the game. Please check in with us and like us. Follow us and you will see the Good Will that this nonprofit foundation has put into motion. To play lacrosse is to join a family. If you are reading this you are likely a family member or know someone that is. Welcome to your CPWLF family. We look forward to hearing from you.
