Henry Youth Lacrosse hosted its 2nd Annual Youth Lacrosse Summer Camp June 20th-24th at Union Grove High School’s stadium. More than 80 boys and girls participated in camp this year (up from 35 last year!). Despite the heat, everyone had a lot of fun. You can view our Summer Camp Photo Album here. We hope to see many of these smiling faces on our teams in the fall!
December 11, 2021 - TryLax Clinic at Strong Rock Christian School
Henry Youth Lacrosse recently partnered with USA Lacrosse to host a TryLax beginner lacrosse clinic at Strong Rock Christian School in Locust Grove, GA (thanks again to Strong Rock for hosting us for this event - their facilities are top-notch and provided the perfect backdrop to the event). USA Lacrosse hosts TryLax events across the U.S. and Henry Youth Lacrosse was fortunate to earn a grant which enabled us to bring this event to Henry County. In total, 80 boys and girls in grades K-8 signed up for the event - kids who had never tried lacrosse prior to this event. These children had an opportunity to learn a variety of fundamental lacrosse skills over the course of the 90-minute clinic, with groups rotating through a variety of stations set up with different lacrosse 'games' for the players to try.
Each station was staffed by multiple volunteer coaches from the Henry County lacrosse community, including current and former youth program coaches and current high school and college players (former youth players and current youth program volunteers). The clinic was led by Lou Corsetti, a Regional Director for USA Lacrosse - though better known as the Godfather of Atlanta Lacrosse across the metro area. Every clinic participant left with what we hope is their first of many lacrosse sticks - as well as a big ear-to-ear smile on their face. Elizabeth McCarthy, a local lacrosse parent (and a regular volunteer for several of our lacrosse groups in Henry County), was kind enough to take and share photos and videos from the event (see album below). On behalf of Henry Youth Lacrosse, I'd like to personally thank everyone who registered their children to "try lacrosse" at this recent clinic - and of course, our volunteers for helping to make the event a huge success. This was a milestone in the growth of our youth lacrosse program in Henry County for sure!
We had three Boys Lacrosse Teams this spring (10U, 12U, and 14U) and we played A LOT of lacrosse. We also had a Girls Skills Development Program and had quite a few girls working on all of their core fundamental skills throughout the season. We’ve added some photos from the spring season to our Google Photos Album below. If you have any photos from this or other seasons and Henry Youth Lacrosse events, please share them with us so we can post them to the website. Thanks!
