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 #8
This one comes from Eric Wendt of Colorado!
“First, honor the Game and its heritage. Do not just play and coach the sport, but learn and teach its history, its roots and its purpose. Secondly, pay it forward, its is as simple as passing your stick on to the youngster at the park or down the block after the season, share in lacrosse’s greatness… Support Lacrosse locally and around the world. Send 30 sticks to Lacrosse Costa Rica, sponsor Lacrosse the Nations or send support to City Lax. Don’t just get in the Game, Go Lead it Onward… Be Great!”
Wow, really laying it out there Eric! We think Connor would probably agree with your above sentiment pretty strongly!
