There are a lot of people out there with ideas for spreading lacrosse in their community. Recently, we asked fans on the LAS Facebook Page to share their own perspective.
The prompt: In 200 words or less, please explain your favorite way to Grow The Game.
We received over 100 answers – some serious, others quite playful – and over the next several days, we’re going to be sharing a few of our favorite tips to #GrowTheGame.
GROW THE GAME TIP #6
This one comes from Ralph Gibson of Buffalo, New York.
“My son is 10 and has been playing for 4 years now. He loves lax so much that whenever he is invited to a birthday party his gift of choice for the birthday person is a Lax stick and a pair of balls. He then invites them to hang out and come to his games. This has brought 6 new boys into clinics and added 4 other boys to new teams. I constantly offer his old equipment to others w kids interested in playing so they can try the sport with no investment up front.”
That’s certainly worthy of a #Forthekids hashtag, Ralph! Absolutely great stuff, and we love that you’re supporting your son so much with something he’s clearly invested in… Growing the Game! Tip of the hat, sir.
