Every Child Deserves a Chance to Play
Lacrosse is the fastest growing sport in America, so why shouldn't children with physical and cognitive challenges get to join in on the fun? Now they can! We are happy to announce a new program
Miracle League of CT Lacrosse
We will be holding 2 one hour clinics on 2 seperate days to familiarize the children with Lacrosse. They will go through some skill drills and learn the basics of this exciting sport. No need to worry about having to go out and buy anything in order to participate. The Miracle League will be supplying all of the necessary equipment and gear. We will be using lightweight plastic training sticks (also known as "pixie" sticks). We will also be using soft practice balls rather than the fairly hard rubber lacrosse balls. The clinics will be run by Coach Brian Wilcox and his East Catholic High School Girls Lacrosse team. As we do with baseball, each participant will be paired with a ''Buddy" who will assist them as much or as little is necessary. The clinics will be held on the fully accessible Miracle League field in West Hartford. This program is open to all children ages 4-21 who has any physical and/or cognitive challenges. You do not need to be a Miracle League baseball player to register.
The Clinics will be held on the Miracle League Field on:
- Saturday May 6th - 1pm for ages 4-10 and 2:30 for ages 11-21
- Sunday May 28th - 1pm for ages 4-10 and 2:30 for ages 11-21
Registration is required as we must have a signed waiver from all participants. We are using the EZReg site that we use for our other programs. If you already have a family account just click on the child's name and then choose the register link on the upper left side over Lacrosse. You only need to register once (it covers both clinics) No need to worry if you can't make it to both clinics, go ahead and register and come to the one that you are able to.
This program is made possible by a generous grant from XL Catlin. Special thanks to the Moran family and Johnny's Jog for Charity for their help in obtaining this grant.
