The Lee Olsen Fund

The Lee Olsen Fund provides stipends to assist with the travel expenses of all members selected to represent the USA in international team competitions.  We also provide assistance to all youth competitors in International events.  Beginning in 2018 the Lee Olsen Fund designed and procured uniforms which are provided free of charge to any USCA members selected to represent the USA in international competition.  This has resulted in an esprit de corps among our international players and helps to present a unified presence when they compete abroad.

The Lee Olsen Fund was established in 1985 to help supply the traveling teams with the proper uniforms and for traveling expenses.  It was named for Lee Olsen, a member of the Westhampton Mallet Club and the Beach Club.  The fund is instrumental in helping traveling teams and the demands continue to grow.

The High Performance and Talent Development Fund

Success at the international level as well as the development and engagement of young players with the potential of long playing careers are “trickle down” drivers for the entire membership.  The USCA High Performance and Talent Development Fund mission is to improve the performance of US representatives in international team and individual competitions.  The program is focused on developing players who have demonstrated the talent and drive to succeed and further improve at the international level.  The USCA, through this program, will organize opportunities and events with a structured environment that provides coaching, encouragement, peer support, assessment, and team-building.  The events will be short in duration to enable full participation.

The USCA will promote the program through print and web based platforms, solicit host venues, arrange fixtures, provide coordination, publish development efforts, and provide competition opportunities.

Eligible players must demonstrate talent and skill.  They must exhibit drive and commitment to improving their knowledge and ability, commit to active participation in this program, and to contribute as development team members.  All coaches and committee participation is provided without remuneration.

Program participation will require active engagement in all aspects of the events - coaching and peer discussions (on and off the lawn).  Participation in major USCA titled events will also be encouraged and expected for the selection process.

Financial support is an essential part of the program.  Given the need to bring players together from around the country travel expenses are significant.  Funding of travel and event expenses will be provided to keep participant costs low, especially for the players participating in this program.  We are actively seeking contributors and donations for this specific purpose.
