National League Lacrosse: Washington Stealth Partners With US Lacrosse And Washington Schoolgirls Lacrosse Association

The Washington Stealth announced today the team has partnered with the Washington Chapter of US Lacrosse and the Washington Schoolgirls Lacrosse Association to present a pair of girls’ lacrosse clinics featuring the U.S. Women’s National Lacrosse Team. The clinics will take place at the Comcast Arena at Everett prior to the Stealth’s season opener on January 5.

“The Stealth is thrilled to partner with the Washington Chapter of US Lacrosse and the Washington Schoolgirl’s Lacrosse Association on this event,” said Stealth General Manager Doug Locker. “Helping grow the game in the Puget Sound region has been a mission of the Stealth since day one and to be able to have the honor to host the U.S. Women’s National Lacrosse Team at Comcast Arena is a special privilege. This is a great opportunity to learn from the best women’s lacrosse players in the world.”

The clinics will be split up into two age groups: elementary and middle school players will take the floor from 12pm to 2pm, followed by high school players from 2-4pm. Players of all skill levels are invited to attend. Members of the U.S. Women’s National Team will be on hand to instruct on all aspects of the game, from shooting and passing to offensive and defensive tactics. Following the clinic, participants will be treated to an autograph session and meal with the members of the U.S. National Team.

Along with the clinic and autograph session, participants will receive a U.S. Women’s National Team t-shirt and a ticket to the Stealth’s 2013 season opener against the Rochester Knighthawks at the Comcast Arena that night.

San Diego Lacrosse Community: US Lacrosse “Fast Break Initiative” And “The Preuss School UCSD” Held Introductory Lacrosse Clinic Sept. 18-19

The Preuss School UCSD, jointly chartered by the San Diego Unified School District and CUSD, joined US Lacrosse last weekend to host a introductory lacrosse clinic for 100 middle and high school students.

Students from Preuss, Lincoln High School and Gompers Middle School participated in the event, part of US Lacrosse’s Fast Break Initiative.

“In the past, lacrosse has been known more as an elitist sport, played by a more affluent population,” said Lisa Hawk, The Preuss School UCSD exercise and health science department chair. “Through this partnership between Preuss and the US Lacrosse Fast Break Initiative, this is no longer the case. It is a community building sport that bridges people and transcends ethnicity and economic levels.”

Lincoln High School and Gompers Charter Middle School work in partnership with UCSD to educate historically underserved communities to support their youth throughout high school and prepare them for a college education.
