Three members of the Iroquois Nationals Lacrosse program headed off to Humboldt County in California and helped in putting on a lacrosse clinic for the local kids. It was one of the first youth lacrosse events in the area. I certainly love a good introductory lacrosse clinic as much as the next guy, but to introduce kids to the game directly through the descendants of the first people to play lacrosse is incredible. I just love seeing stuff like this, and it definitely inspires me to keep learning about the game so that I can teach it better.

The message of where lacrosse comes from, and what it means, is often lost these days, but hopefully this video will help you keep that a little closer to the front of your consciousness. I know I will. That’s it, I’m giving up mesh for the rest of the year and only using traditional. It’s a small start. Grow The Game!!!
