I'm raising money to compete for Stockport MetroGirls Lacrosse on an upcoming US Tour in July, whilst continuing to progress with Wales U19s

Background

I started playing lacrosse when I was 7 years old and have represented my local club, Norbury Lacrosse, in Stockport, through each age group ever since. 

I have also represented my county, Cheshire Lacrosse and in 2019 I was selected to join the Wales U19 National Academy – an elite player pathway to train alongside the most talented players with the eventual goal of representing Wales at international tournaments.

Stockport MetroGirls Lacrosse

I've recently been selected to join Stockport MetroGirls Lacrosse on a two-year exchange programme which includes the upcoming tour (in July 2021) to Maryland, United States.

MetroGirls Lacrosse was established in 1996 for the purpose of organising tours to strengthen the game and skills of talented lacrosse players in the North West of England. 

During the tour the MetroGirls become an American family member with their hosts, being fully involved in their home activities. They play five matches against local community teams and a sixth final match against the hosting players.

Trials took place in September and I was selected based on my skills and attitude as I competed against other outstanding players in the region. 

The programme, and the USA tour in particular, is a once-in-a-lifetime experience for me and providing an opportunity to develop my playing and social skills as I continue to grow in the sport I love. My ultimate goal is to play lacrosse at an international level.

Why I'm Raising Money

I'm trying to raise money in order to take my place on the MetroGirls Lacrosse programme which will cost approx. £2-3k - the costs include travel, kit, training, insurance etc. I also have ongoing costs for my participation with the Wales U19 National Academy.

I am committed to raising money through my own fundraising activities and I will be setting myself some challenges which you can see in the updates on this page. I would be so grateful if you can help me reach my goal by supporting me to raise £500 to contribute to my overall costs.

Any donation, no matter how small, will make a big difference.

Thank you,

Rosa xx

Please note: If the tour is cancelled for any reason then all funds raised will be returned to those who have kindly donated.
