GerLaxCon scheduled for May 2022 in Dresden
At GerLaxCon, lacrosse is for everyone!
How did the fastest sport on two feet become the fastest growing team sport in the world? The answer is simple: the hard work and dedication of volunteers at all levels, combined with a rich tradition and a unique sport that is hard to resist!
But it takes a little more than dedication and a fascinating sport – it also takes a defined vision and a reliable plan. Over the past three years, World Lacrosse has defined and realized the vision for lacrosse at the Olympic Games, and more than 70 nations have followed that path.
What seemed distant in the past may soon become reality. Lacrosse at the Olympics will mean major media presences, the best of lacrosse visible on the world stage and a truly unique experience for anyone who has ever played the sport. But the Olympic vision alone will not be enough to grow our sport – we need to drive grassroots development and provide new platforms for lacrosse to flourish and be ubiquitous.
In Germany, we decided to merge the core values of the Olympics into a unique event format that enables “Lacrosse for All”. Under the motto Player. To learn. Grow. Connect.the German Lacrosse Convention, also known as GerLaxCon, will be Europe’s largest lacrosse event and will take place in Dresden from 20 to 22 May 2022.
GerLaxCon is an event for everyone, with everyone, by everyone! World Lacrosse and the European Lacrosse Federation are partners, supporting the idea of a more inclusive platform that connects players of different ages, backgrounds and backgrounds.
The event will make the world’s fastest growing sport more popular, especially in Europe and Germany. But GerLaxCon will be more than just an advertisement for an exciting sport – we’ll showcase the traditions and modern aspects of the game side by side. GerLaxCon will be the first European event to showcase Wheelchair Lacrosse as an inclusive lacrosse discipline for everyone, regardless of physical disability. And we want to celebrate the biggest lacrosse party the world has ever seen.
To achieve this, we need everyone’s support:
€40,000 ($47,000) – this is the budget the German Lacrosse Association needs to raise. A major crowdfunding campaign is underway on the Fairplaid platform from November 3 to December 15, 2021.
We hope to raise funds from sponsors and the global lacrosse community to help make GerLaxCon a reality. If the goal is not reached, the donations will be donated, but the GerLaxCon will not take place.
To avoid this, we would like to give something back to the supporters. Depending on the amount of donations, different rewards can be obtained. Among them: tickets to the convention, jerseys, special training hours, participation in a world record attempt and much more. As a crowdfunding partner, Toyota will also complete donations during the first week of crowdfunding.
Together we will shape and grow the game across borders, nations and cultures. One stick for all, and all sticks for one!
