Do you remember your first Lacrosse game?
Can you remember your first game of Lacrosse? From
memory, I was eight years of age, my coach was Fred Durham and I
was representing Montmorency South Primary School in the local
schools comp'. All in all, a very gentle introduction into
the sport. Well, for some, it is not such a gentle
introduction. For example, take Lee Thedoris, who today played
his first game of Lacrosse, representing the U17
President's team, playing against a very strong
Lee, (similar to Marty Hyde's story) is a junior (or now maybe
was) footballer, who has been introduced to Lacrosse through his
friend Xavier Fiorentini. Over the summer period Lee has been
working hard to master the basic principles of catching and
throwing, which was all put to the test today.
Coach John Reedyk Snr (President's Coach) was impressed
with the new recruit, finding it hard to believe that this
was Lee's first ever game.
Whilst going down 30 - 3, Lee loved his first game, also having
an opportunity to play against his good mate Xavier.
We look forward to seeing Lee (and Xavier) on the lacrosse
field in years to come.
