Northstar Lacrosse is pleased to announce a new partnership with Brave Enterprises, known for their unique, high-energy, and deliberate leadership training. Brave was founded by lacrosse legend, Crista Samaras, whose many years of experience in coaching young female athletes evolved into meaningful and effective curriculum. Brave programming will be strategically implemented throughout the Invitational, bringing its focused approach and tools to athletes right on the field, where confidence and bravery are critical. Attending parents will also have the opportunity to engage with Brave, to support and bolster confidence in their daughters. “We are very excited to partner with Brave”, said Northstar Co-Founder, Ashley Gersuk Murphy. “Brave’s mission clearly aligns with ours: to empower young women to capitalize on their strengths, increase their confidence, and ultimately be better equipped to achieve their goals, on and off the field.”
“Bravery is a muscle and learning how to flex it can take time. Northstar is committed to helping girls get on the chase of big goals and supporting them with tools and resources to remain in pursuit. This kind of playground to practice is critical for teens, especially at this age when confidence, and bravery, decreases in girls.” said Samaras.
