Mavericks Lacrosse – Ron Gale
- Mavericks Lacrosse – Ron Gale (Lacrosse Partner)
Over the last 10 years, Ron along with his fellow Board Members has built Mavericks Lacrosse into one of the largest regular season lacrosse programs, drawing on players from over 30 towns. The program, not only one of the oldest in central NJ, was also the first in NJ to start boys and girls at kindergarten. In the process of building their program they have helped build several major high school programs and seeded programs in numerous neighboring towns. As a non-for-profit, it has always been about spreading and growing the sport of lacrosse rather than seeing how much people would pay. Mavericks Lacrosse has a staff of over 20 coaches as well as individuals specializing in apparel, marketing and administration. Recognizing the limitations of many surrounding towns to manage their own lacrosse programs, Mavericks is altruistically championing the formation of a regional association to pool the assets and resources of various towns and programs.
