For the past five years, Creator’s Game and our partners have conducted mission trips to the Dominican Republic and during those trips have introduced its youth to the sport of lacrosse. Through our efforts, lacrosse has been taught to and played by dozens of kids in Los Alcarrizos, an impoverished municipality of Santo Domingo. Our annual trips include service projects as well as 3-4 days of lacrosse clinics and games for Dominican students attending Lighthouse School.
Over the years, our teams have built homes, churches, community centers, and sports facilities for the community of Los Alcarrizos. We have been able to get to know many families and have seen kids grow through the ministry of our lacrosse program. Along with the visible impact, we have made upon the city and its residents, we have seen many of our own team members’ lives changed from the experience.
