NAYTAHWAUSH — A free lacrosse clinic and games are coming to the Naytahwaush Sports Complex on Sept. 24.

The event will run from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. and be hosted by members of the Twin Cities Native Lacrosse League. Any kids currently enrolled in fourth grade or older are encouraged to participate.

During the morning session, league players will share basics about the sport, including well-known lacrosse legends, the sport's history, technique, stick handling and footwork.

Lunch and water will be provided to children for free.

"Bring your own chair, water bottle, and to eliminate waste, bring your own plate and utensils," the news release stated.


Games will be played in the afternoon with equipment and sticks being provided. In case of inclement weather, the event will be moved indoors.

Spectators are welcome and the event is sponsored by the White Earth Tribal and Community College and White Earth Tribal Public Health. For more information, call or email Robert Shimek at: 218-204-1632.
