In one of our district’s elementary buildings, a group of exceptional teachers facilitated a special visit from the Buffalo Bandits. To maximize the experience, we brought 13 varsity athletes along to educate pre-K to 5th-grade students on the joys of lacrosse and its underlying values. Our athletes actively engaged in various physical education classes, leading exciting drills and imparting their expertise.
Additionally, they joined in reading and coloring sessions throughout the school, focusing on the importance of teamwork and the various aspects of the game. Fostering an understanding of the sport among our younger students is a vital objective for our community and program. We remain committed to expanding opportunities for them to learn and grow in their chosen sports.
This memorable day reflects our dedication to supporting and nurturing young athletes in finding their passion. We are grateful as coaches to work with such motivated and compassionate children who aspire to make a positive impact.
Throughout the year they also actively engage with the youth in their community. This involvement includes hosting free summer youth clinics, conducting visits to various elementary schools, and organizing winter clinics at the middle school.
