Our partner Arete Sport is excited to kick off a mental health campaign through lacrosse programming and an online Movember shop. Lacrosse players ranging from 14-17 years old will come together under the name “Team Movember” and compete at events around the United States. Along with teams, Arete Sport will host the Movember Winter Invitational which will bring teams together for an event focused on mental health awareness.
In addition to Movember teams, parents and players can purchase fan apparel on the Arete Sport online shop under Movember Collections. The collection is open to all Movember supporters with 20% of purchase from select products being donated to the cause.
Arete Sport understands the influence coaches and professional athletes have on youth athletes. By providing an environment focused on mental health awareness, young athletes will understand how mental health impacts men of all ages and backgrounds. Along with awareness, players will join other individuals who are eager to support Movember programming.
“We are excited to work with such a respected charity. Movember funds over 1250+ programs with the money raised, including mental health programs such as Making Connections and Movember Conversations. We are beyond excited to support their cause and seek support from the lacrosse community. We believe the lacrosse community is in the perfect position to help create more awareness and support the Movember movement.“
