For Alanna Waters, lacrosse played a big role in her college years. As a college player for St. Lawrence University, most of Waters’ time was dedicated to practicing, staying fit, and learning more to perfect her craft.

experience to help others overcome no matter the circumstance.

Alanna Water’s lacrosse coaching itself, however, has always been her biggest way of giving back. The benefits of participation in sports like lacrosse for young women are well documented.

As youngsters who get hours of intense exercise each week through the sport, lacrosse players are more likely to be a healthy weight and to enjoy excellent overall levels of wellness compared to peers. Being out in the sunshine for games also has its advantages, as players are able to get FDA recommended levels of the nutrient vitamin D. Regular exercise, like running, has been shown to increase bone health and keep the heart and circulatory system in shape. All in all, lacrosse proves to be a great way to stay healthy and well.
Lacrosse is also a great way to train the mind. The stress relief exercise brings can help people of all ages deal with the demands of school, work, and daily life. Thinking tactically about plays, passes, goals, and blocks can also stimulate the brain and help young minds continue to advance and grow. Alanna Water’s lacrosse experience is further evidence of this fact. In college, her dedication to her team helped her develop discipline and a good work ethic in her studies and personal life.

She plans to continue to hone her skills and qualifications as an assistant coach. Although she already holds several certifications that position her in the top tier of lacrosse professionals, Alanna Waters will continue to learn and grow as a training professional so she can help her team stay out in front of the competition.
