CityLax Stories

Volunteers Help Our Student-Athletes Succeed

Hadley Mongell

“My favorite CityLax memory is telling a new player at one of our clinics that, yes, she could get a scholarship for playing goalie. To see the relief and excitement on her face when she found out that this was an opportunity for her to get farther in life than maybe was possible before was one of the moments that I’ll always cherish.”

“One of the really powerful things that I’ve experienced is that the conversations went from being just about lacrosse to now including what they’re going to do after high school. I think that those conversations are more important than lacrosse itself. As volunteers, we get to help grow these student-athletes from being teenagers into adults.”
