You may have heard of the old saying, “men battle to bond, women bond to battle”. Truth is, girls and boys are wired differently, so shouldn’t this apply to competitive sports teams as well? Social bonding motivates women (and especially girls) to propel forward and succeed as a team. At Legacy Lacrosse, this bonding is at the heart of our philosophy. We recognize that social bonding is as important a feature in competitive female sports as strength and conditioning. It gives our young ladies a sense of unity and a place to go where they feel like they belong. It provides the forum to speak openly about their feelings or problems without being judged. Perhaps most importantly, this bonding reinforces compassion for others and tolerance of differences. We believe that happy people are successful people, on and off the field.
