Oakland Lacrosse Club to Hold Annual Fundraiser Thursday Evening to Support Thousands of OUSD Students with the Original North American Sport

Oakland – On Thursday evening, October 8, an important partner to Oakland schools and our students is holding its annual fundraiser. The Oakland Lacrosse Club (OLC) is hosting a virtual fundraiser to raise money to help it serve its student athletes. Every year, OLC shares the sport of lacrosse with 2,500 OUSD students, and 175 sixth to twelfth graders participate in the year round program.

The money raised will help OLC support the creation of girls varsity lacrosse programs at every OUSD-run high school, provide intensive college counseling for 100 high school players, and continue to build a 6th to 12th grade pipeline offering the sport of lacrosse to all youth in Oakland public schools.

Oakland Lacrosse Club

Lacrosse is a sport similar to soccer played on the same kind of field, yet with a small rubber ball that is thrown back and forth between players using sticks with nets on one end. The boys version is full contact, so they wear helmets and pads. The girls game has contact similar to basketball, so they don’t wear helmets or pads, but they do wear safety goggles. The sport is a descendent of what was called baggataway, which was invented by Native Americans in the 15th century. Oakland Technical High School has had a girls varsity team and a boys club team for several years, and girls varsity teams are coming to Oakland High and Skyline High, the latter of which used to have a boys varsity team.

Like every organization, Oakland Lacrosse has faced challenges because of the pandemic. Undaunted, OLC created a fall program in which 10 coaches oversee 60 players and provide weekly check-ins on academics, wellness and fitness. Players can join the coaches at social distance lacrosse and fitness workouts around the city so they have the opportunity to exercise and connect with their teammates. OLC also partnered with ESM prep to provide intensive college counseling for high school juniors and seniors, half of whom will be the first in their family to go to college.

The fundraiser is free to attend, and will include an awards ceremony. OUSD Communications Director, John Sasaki, who is a lifelong lacrosse player and current high school coach, will serve as emcee.
