FARGO, N.D. - The Fargo Lacrosse Club will host Fargo Lacrosse Day from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. Saturday at Fargo’s Ed Clapp Park, 30th Avenue and 28th Street South (across the street from Innovis Hospital).
The event is free and open to all. Register at www.fargolacrosse.org or just show up at the event.
The day will consist of an introduction to lacrosse that includes active participation and observation. The Fargo Lacrosse Club’s youth teams – 7th/8th grade and varsity – will scrimmage in the morning. Area college teams from North Dakota State University, Minnesota State University-Moorhead and Concordia College will scrimmage in the afternoon.
The club will provide sticks for participants to use during introductory sessions that will be held constantly throughout the day. Participants can purchase your own stick and ball for $40 in advance and pick it up at the event if they pre-register.
“Fargo Lacrosse Day is our way of introducing lacrosse to all area youth at no cost. It features a ‘hands on’ experience as well as observing experienced players of various ages,” said FLC President Matt Noah. “In 2011 we fielded North Dakota’s first varsity team. In 2012, we field a varsity team and a 7th/8th-grade team. We hope to expand again in 2013 with a 5th/6th grade team.”
The Fargo Lacrosse Club was incorporated in 2007 and has offered programs for players from 3rd grade through high school.
