Editor’s note: Leo Wolfson from Cody Enterprise reports about learning lacrosse from a pro. In this case it’s Mikie Schlosser, Denver Outlaws midfielder!
It’s not every day professionals in any sport make their way to Cody, but it’s a certain rarity when that person happens to be a lacrosse player.
Mikie Schlosser, a midfielder with the Denver Outlaws, ran clinics with Cody youth lacrosse players March 9-11, making stops at local elementary schools and Cody Middle School. He also ran a clinic with the Cody Warriors Lacrosse Club.
The purpose of Schlosser’s visit was to provide high-level teaching to local players, as part of his encompassing goal to grow lacrosse in small towns.
“It fits into our goals perfectly,” said CWLC board president and JV assistant coach Clint Campbell.
The Outlaws only play on weekends during their season, affording Schlosser the opportunity to travel to small communities throughout the country and teach the sport he loves, as a member of its highest echelon.
We definitely didn’t get to experience much like that growing up. It’s cool to help build the game of lacrosse.
Before becoming a standout player at the University of Michigan and Major League Lacrosse all-star, Schlosser grew up playing in a relatively small city in California.
