“Having an opportunity to share inclusive practices with coaches across the country through a webinar was an effective way to strengthen the organization’s commitment to diversity and inclusions,” said Lisa Drennan of Merge Consulting, a presenter of the Inclusive Coaching webinar. “The interactive component allowed participants to give feedback and live commentary that I could react to in the moment. Many coaches taking part in the webinar reached out to me afterward to continue the conversation on how to best support players with diverse abilities such as autism or learning disabilities to be successful members of their teams.”







Webinar = Web + Seminar

The US Lacrosse Webinar Series offers members the opportunity to interact live with the experts of the sport.
