Fall Lacrosse Clinics Attract a Large Crowd

Girls Clinic Fall 2022

Our 2022 Fall Lacrosse Clinics Attract a Large Crowd

This past Saturday, Auburn Youth Lacrosse Club hosted their annual free fall lacrosse clinics at Pick Elementary. With over 125 athletes in attendance, the clinics were a rousing success. The girls started the morning with sunshine and fun. Players and participants enganged in favorite drills such as "hungry-hungry hippo," had a fastest-shot contest, and scrimmaged within their age levels.
Girls Lacrosse Clinic
This annual event serves as a great kick-off for our lacrosse year. Returning players look forward to reconnecting with friends and making new ones! The boys had the field in the afternoon. Joy and excitement could be found on all faces, new and old.  They started with a dynamic warm-up and some introductory drills. Unfortunately the weather did not hold and the clinic was cut short.
Fall Registration is still live! Register Now.
Boys Lacrosse Clinic 2022
All-in-all, we meet over 70 new faces this weekend. Thank you to everyone who came out to give lacrosse a try! We could not pull-off successful events like this one without the efforts of our many volunteers. A shout out to our AHS Varsity Girls who volunteered with both clinics. Thank you to Officer Rob Rich for providing our fastest shot competition. And a sweet thank you to Kona Ice for providing a treat after the hard work was finished.
Fall Registration closes September 5th! Register Now.
