Lacrosse coming for area youths

February 8, 2011

The Westerly Area Youth Lacrosse league is offering a FREE event for area parents and students, grades 1 through 8 today from 5:30 to 7 p.m. at the Westerly Middle School.

Join WAYL tonight to hear Dave Cornell and Heather McClelland, head mens' and womens' coaches from Conn College, give interested players the "scoop" on the sport. Vendors will also be available to display and sell equipment. WAYL has received a grant from US Lacrosse for helmets and eye wear for 20 boys. The equipment will be loaned for the season on a first-come, first-served basis.

Student athletes can register at the event for the Spring 2011 season. Registration is $50 per child. A $25 annual US Lacrosse membership fee is also required. Scholarships are available.

There will be refreshments and a raffle prize. Register to win an iPod shuffle, lacrosse supplies, gift baskets, and more.
