Lacrosse hits Warrnambool and Timboon

On Friday the 2nd December one of the oldest sports in the World was available to students across the South West.  Lacrosse Victoria headed down to Warrnambool to run a series of lacrosse clinics with Primary Schools in the district.

The clinics were attended by 400 pupils from Allansford PS, West Warrnambool PS, East Warrnambool PS, Grassmere PS and Warrnambool PS.   The intention of the clinics is to develop and promote a future Primary Schools Competition in the South West Region. 

Ben Stevens of the Caulfield Lacrosse Club and FastBreak lacrosse was kind enough to give up his time to help out.  Ben was stunned at how skillful all of the kids were. 

Stevens said lacrosse needs to be Warrnambool as the lacrosse talent pool is huge.

Monday 5th Lacrosse Victoria provided over 200 students at Timboon P-12 the same experience. Feedback from the day was overwhelmingly positive from all involved. Students from Timboon P-12 are currently petitioning to make Lacrosse a permanent part of their PE curriculum and to form a range of male and female junior and senior teams.

Lacrosse Victoria would like to thank the Warrnambool Hockey Association for providing their grounds, special thanks to Kane Horwill, Ben Stevens and Ric Benedierks.

In addition, LV was lucky enough to have stories run in the Standard Newspaper and Cobden Times
