Molly Swain

Girls Surf + Lax National Director

“The game of lacrosse transformed my life, not just as an athlete, but in everything that I am.  A sport that is fully reliant on the participation of your teammates, bringing rigor and grit to everything you do on the field, it’s hard not to be transformed. It taught me life lessons of how to work hard, how to win and lose with my teammates, and how to be a leader. I am excited to be a part of an organization that fosters a love of the game while teaching skills and life lessons that will take you far beyond the lacrosse field.”
