ROCK BRIDGE: Mid Missouri Lacrosse League offers free clinic Wednesday

Wednesday, September 21, 2011 | 10:11 a.m. CDT

COLUMBIA — The Mid Missouri Lacrosse League and Columbia Parks and Recreation will hold a free lacrosse clinic from 5:30-7 p.m. Wednesday at the Columbia Activity and Recreation Center, according to league president Kevin Ventrillo.

The clinic will take place on a field to the west of the ARC parking lot. The clinic is open to children in grades 3-8, according the mid-Missouri youth lacrosse program website.

Ventrillo hopes the absence of costs will allow for more children to get involved in the sport.

“Basically we’re trying to grow the sport in mid-Missouri,” Ventrillo said. “It’s a sport that people haven't played before; a lot of parents, including me, had no knowledge of it.”

For individuals willing to give the sport a try during the clinic, they will learn a variety of skills in lacrosse, including how to pick up the ball, passing, and shooting, Ventrillo said. 

Future clinics are scheduled for Saturday from 10-11:30 a.m., Tuesday, Sept. 27, from 5:30-7 p.m., and Saturday, Oct. 1, from 10-11:30 a.m.
