My name is Allen Westerfield, and I am the owner of Share the Lax, a charity organization operating in various cities in the Southeast region that collects and distributes gently used lacrosse equipment. There are many young athletes who would love to play lacrosse but don't have the means to play—whether their school doesn't have a lacrosse program or they are unable to purchase the equipment. That's where Share the Lax can help.
In addition to equipment distribution, Share the Lax offers clinics at charities, such as the Salvation Army, as well as field clinics, all of which are 100% funded by Share the Lax to teach the young athletes the rules of the game.
Lacrosse is a growing sport, and the more young athletes we can get to play it, the bigger and better the lacrosse community will be.
There are two ways you can help grow the lacrosse community—monetary donations and equipment donations. Monetary donations allow Share the Lax to purchase equipment directly, and equipment donations allow Share the Lax to redistribute the equipment to schools and players.
To make a monetary donation, feel free to use the PayPal button below. If you have equipment you would like to donate, there is a contact form you can use to coordinate the donation with Allen.
With your generous donations, you give Share the Lax the opportunity to grow the game and empower the player! Thank you!

These are photos from some of the fun clinics Share the Lax has had the opportunity to sponsor. All of the clinics are coached by high school and college varsity players, so the young athletes are getting high-quality coaching. This gives the young athletes an opportunity to work on their skills or learn a brand new sport—all funded by Share the Lax.
Share the Lax has recently contributed to a program in West End Louisville run by Bellarmine University players. The program aims to bring lacrosse to public school P.E. classes throughout the West End in Lousiville, KY. Share the Lax provided all the equipment and made this amazing initiative possible.
These are some pictures from the P.E. classes!
Share the Lax is proud to have supported Lexington Traditional Magnet School by providing equipment to get their new lacrosse program running. Share the Lax provided a large number of helmets and pads so the school could give new players the opportunity to join the team.
Later this fall, Share the Lax plans to give LTMS a set of new helmets and pads for this upcoming season.
Share the Lax had the great opportunity to sponsor a clinic at the Salvation Army Boys & Girls Club. For many of the kids, this was their first exposure to lacrosse.
Ethan Penn and Allen Westerfield ran drills to show them the basics of the sport, with a fun scrimmage at the end of the session!
All of the equipment was provided by Share the Lax and supported by your donations.
If you have any equipment you would like to donate or questions about the organization, you can contact Share the Lax here.
