August 31, 2023
ANDOVER, Mass. (August 31, 2023) – 3STEP Sports, the nation’s largest and most impactful youth sports club and event operator, has acquired Summit Lacrosse, adding another all–girls program to the impressive Lacrosse division.
Founded in 2009, Summit Lacrosse provides girls in the Grand Rapids area the opportunity to play lacrosse at a high level while simultaneously inspiring athletes to be strong community partners and prepare for lacrosse at the collegiate level. The club provides programs and teams for elementary through high–school aged athletes.
Hilary Duda, Summit’s Program Director, brings a wealth of knowledge, experience and female–leadership to the Summit athletes. Duda knows what it takes to play elite lacrosse, as she herself was a decorated high school and college lacrosse student–athlete and coached at the collegiate level prior to taking over the helm of Summit Lacrosse in 2022.
“I am so excited to be joining the 3STEP Lacrosse Family,” said Duda. “Partnering with 3STEP will allow our coaches to focus on developing our athletes and growing our program to provide unparalleled opportunity for our female athletes”.
Summit Lacrosse marks 3STEP’s eighth all–girls lacrosse program, joining M&D Lacrosse, NXT Girls, Atlanta Storm, National Girls Lacrosse League, Robinson Sports, Aces Lacrosse and Storm New England.
“We are so lucky for the opportunity to continue growing and supporting girls’ lacrosse at a national scale and adding Summit Lacrosse is the perfect fit,” said 3STEP CEO, Tania King. “We are eager to welcome the strong Michigan community that Hilary has built into our growing family.”
