Each week we pick a superb lacrosse photo from one lucky LAS reader and feature it as Photo Of The Week. This week’s photo features Andreas Rossband and Dennis Kowa, two major Game Growers in Germany! We met Dennis down in Thailand (he was living in Malaysia at the time) and Andreas reefed the Grow The Game Invitational. Andreas Rossband has ALSO just been voted President of the European Lacrosse Federation!
Congrats to Andreas! We think the ELF made a fantastic selection! Here is a quick update from Andreas on what’s been going down in Europe over the last couple of weeks:
We are in the middle of lacrosse Summer here in Europe. There have been tournaments all over the place (in most of our 27 member countries) within the European Lacrosse Federation.
This past weekend, I met the other part of the German Grow The Game Gang who went to Bangkok. Denis and I played and refereed at the Summer Lax Festival in Stuttgart, Germany, where young teams from several European countries played an 8-a-side tournament over two days.
In the end, the Global Players from USA won the men’s and women’s competitions, but our European teams could learn a lot of them. It was a great event, with plenty of Grow The Game action!
Thanks for the update, Andreas! Keep up the great work and we look forward to seeing Europe Lacrosse continue to thrive under its new leadership! Want to pick up some sweet Grow The Game yourself? Look no further than the GTG section of The Lacrosse Shop!
