A clinic to introduce the challenging, interesting and lesser-known sport of lacrosse was held at Two Wells Primary School last month.

Year 6 and Year 7 students were shown the ropes of how to hold a lacrosse stick, how to catch and throw the puck, shoot goals, and run with the ball, otherwise known as cradling.

Led by Lacrosse SA development coordinator, Marilyn Fuss, the students enjoyed the sessions immensely, with cries of “this is fun” and “I’ve never done this before” echoing across the field amidst the laughing and sounds of lacrosse sticks striking the ground.

Marilyn said the sport of lacrosse was a great activity for people of all ages and combined a number of skills, most importantly teamwork.

The North Adelaide Lacrosse Club, based at Gepps Cross is looking for new members, with free membership for juniors currently being offered.
