Global Players is thrilled to announce our latest Out of Bounds Honoree, Katy Mohr. With the Out of Bounds Honor, we like to recognize someone who is striving to better themselves and the lacrosse community, by spreading the game and promoting the great benefits lacrosse can offer. Mohr represents all of Global Players main pillars; learn, play, travel, serve. Not only that, she has gone above and beyond in all that she has accomplished.
Originating from Michigan, Mohr has been intensively involved with the game of lacrosse for the past twelve years. Graduating from Western Michigan University with a B.S in Recreation, Mohr played for the WMU Broncos, and has since enjoyed coaching and officiating many levels of lacrosse; including middle school all the way to her newest position as the Head Women’s Lacrosse Coach at Oklahoma Baptist University.
We love a good coach BUT what really got Mohr the OOB honor was her participation with Fields of Growth. Mohr traveled to Uganda in the summer of 2011 with Fields of Growth, which is a non-profit organization thats mission is right on par with Global Players- "to harness the passion of the lacrosse community into positive social impact through global leadership development, service and growing the game." While in Uganda, Mohr served as Director of Communications for Fields of Growth where her extensive work landed her the role of Manager of Mission Based Travel for the organization. During the time Mohr spent in Uganda 2011, she helped ignite the sport of lacrosse for women by leading the beginning of a program at Makerere University Business School in Uganda. Mohr coached the first women’s national championship team for Uganda. Global Players would like to congratulate Katy Mohr on all of her successful efforts to serve and give back to the game that she loves, lacrosse.
