Old or Used Equipment Needed


Lighthouse Lacrosse is working together with JaxLax to promote the "recycling" of good used equipment.  Our equipment recycling program will help us fulfill our mission and objective, as follows:
  Mission:  To utilize Lacrosse as a tool to develop positive life skills and encourage academic achievement in youth,  particularly children who would otherwise not be exposed to the sport.

  Objective:  Working with the Police Athletic League and Duval County Public Schools, the Lighthouse Lacrosse  Foundation will help provide the resources to expand lacrosse to core city neighborhoods as well as Jacksonville Middle and High Schools.  Our objective will be to provide BOTH lacrosse instruction and life skills enrichment to youth from diverse populations.

The new JaxLax store at 110 Cumberland Park, Suite 104 will serve as the drop-off point for any used equipment and anyone who donates gets 3 potential benefits.  They will:
  1. Help a young player have the opportunity to afford to play this great game
  2. Receive a donation receipt for tax purposes, just like when you make a donation to Goodwill
  3. Be eligible for a 10% discount on their purchase at JaxLax
So, please help spread the word to EVERYONE you know in the Lacrosse community about this great opportunity to help the sport grow in Northeast Florida. 
Directions to JaxLax are at the link below. 




Lighthouse Lacrosse is a non-profit organization created to broaden the exposure of lacrosse in the Jacksonville market and to utilize the game as a tool to encourage positive life choices and academic achievement in youth of all economic, ethnic, religious and racial backgrounds.
