In keeping with our mission to provide programs and services that inspire participation while protecting the integrity of the sport of lacrosse in Qatar, the QLA are pleased to share our success having secured an equipment grant through the Federation of International Lacrosse (Balls-Cockerton-Hayes Youth Lacrosse Development Grant Program).
"Partnerships and Grants are instrumental support mechanisms that provide the QLA with a strong platform to initiate responsible and self-sustaining lacrosse programs to awarded hosts in Qatar."
- David Heywood, QLA Founder.
The QLA's “First Stick” lacrosse program offers a quality physical education, which includes activities tailored to the experience, varying interests and abilities of all students and is an exciting activity for male and female students here in Qatar.
"The goal for us is to enhance and expand our “First Stick” lacrosse program within elementary, middle and high schools. The grant will significantly advance our objective to award Qatar schools with a program package, therefore encouraging national participation in the sport through the physical education curriculum / extra curriculum activity."
- Gibran Al-Bader, QLA Co-Founder.
