McDowell Girls Lacrosse is truly a parent-run organization. It is through the parents' hard work and dedication that the program thrives.
If you're the parent of a McDowell lacrosse player, you're already deeply involved. You drive your daughter to practice several times a week. You spend every weekend in the spring at games and tournaments all over Pennsylvania, Ohio, and New York. You buy sticks, pack coolers, wash uniforms, yell and cheer at games, and do a hundred other little things to ensure that your daughter has a great experience.
But if you're ready to take the next step, there are several vital roles and duties that need to be filled.
Registration for US Lacrosse: after all the girls have registered for the spring season, someone must assemble and submit the paperwork to officially register our players with US Lacrosse.
Concessions: we always need volunteers to run the concession stand at Gus Anderson on game days.
Game day field prep:
Accounting (profit/loss) submit title IX
