Gainesville Youth Lacrosse League (GYLL) – home of Brigade
, is an organization established exclusively to foster and support the sport of lacrosse as played by boys and girls ages 6 to 15 in Western Prince William County and the City of Manassas, Virginia. GYLL membership has grown from 4 teams in 2004, to a projected 32 teams in 2013.
Lacrosse is considered to be the fastest growing sport in the United States. Currently, US Lacrosse, the national governing body for the sport, has over 420,000 registered members, an increase of over 10 percent from the previous year. Numbers continue to grow at the youth, high school, college and post-college ages. Over $75 million (wholesale) was spent on lacrosse equipment in 2011 in the United States, an amount that has increased in each of the last five years.
It is an exciting time for GYLL and the nationwide lacrosse community. Local businesses are capitalizing on the explosive growth of the sport. In order to achieve our goals of providing high-quality coaching, lacrosse fields, and equipment, Brigade needs support from our local community comprised of businesses that our family members patronize on a daily basis. In an effort to streamline how we partner with our local vendors, GYLL / Brigade Lacrosse is pleased to outline our 2016 Vendor Sponsor Program (click here to link to the program outline)
. In the attached document, you will see various levels of partnership that will benefit your business while supporting the local recreational lacrosse league.
Please take a moment to review the program outline. The league is flexible with regard to monetary contributions that might somehow be supplemented with equipment, services (clinic sponsorships & management, etc.) and/or coupon discount programs provided throughout the course of the year, based on what works best for your organization. If you are employed by a local business, or own and operate your own business, and wish to learn more about the 2016 Brigade Vendor Sponsor Program, please contact Buddy Lint, Brigade Member at Large, at
