This month, Kilbourne Lacrosse players "paid forward" to the next generation by volunteering at five Worthington elementary schools during the "Care After" program. The initiative was part of Kilbourne Lacrosse's "Man-Up" community service program.
Players and coaches visited Brookside, Worthington Hills, Liberty, Granby and Bluffsview elementary schools. Players organized fun, fast-paced activities for the kids to help introduce them to lacrosse and to teach them some basics. In all, the players and coaches ran five clinics for more than 100 boys and girls. Many of the high school players are alumni of the elementary schools they visited which let the kids make an instant connection beyond lacrosse as well. The kids and the high school players had a ton of fun.
WYB Youth Lacrosse registration is currently open for the spring 2019 season for both boys and girls. So we also hope some of the kids who might not have already played lacrosse will now want to sign-up to give it a try with their friends! Worthington has a great tradition of success in lacrosse and we hope to inspire the next wave of players to enjoy the sport. Here is the WYB Lacrosse link for interested parents to sign-up your kids: http://worthingtonlax.org/
Thanks to the Care After program for allowing Kilbourne Lacrosse to be a part of the kids' days!
