CLOSING THE OPPORTUNITY GAP
We, the Bridge Family, are a sports-based youth development nonprofit serving the urban communities of North Texas. In 2004, our programming began with a small summer lacrosse camp in South Dallas. In 2008, we officially became Bridge Lacrosse after seeing incredible progress in programming, and even greater opportunities to impact youth. Since then, we have introduced the sport of lacrosse to thousands of student-athletes in South Dallas, West Dallas and Oak Cliff, as well as other surrounding neighborhoods. We provide hours of high-quality lacrosse instruction, with the help of high school volunteers and coaches, as well as provide new experiences and opportunities for personal growth. Our greater purpose is to use this unique and nontraditional sport to help close the opportunity gap that exists in many areas of North Texas. We believe that sports can be an integral part of a child's development.
