Bruce Clark (far left), one of New Horizon Lacrosse’s group of advisers, organized a Skills Clinic Fundraiser this Fall to benefit New Horizons. It was a two-day affair that was staffed with some of the best coaches in NCAA college lacrosse. Headed by Don Zimmerman (UMBC – 2nd right) and supported by Steve Vainess (Loyola – center) and David Jardin (Goucher – 4th right).
The focus of the camp was to provide high quality skills to the local lacrosse community. Twelve boys and girls from the New Horizons Lacrosse (NHL) program were awarded scholarships from New Horizons Foundation to attend. Five of our two-day participants earned sticks to take home. While some of the camp instruction was geared toward more experienced players, our kids (all are beginners) got special attention and were skillfully incorporated into the event. NHL girls received special attention from local girls coach Tom O’Grady (white hat).
There was a drop-in appearance made by Princeton graduate and professional player Matt Striebel (at right). The boys got to “Faceoff with a Pro” while some of the situational drills were going on with the experienced players. Matt’s intensity and sense of humor kept everyone engaged and loose.
