In July 2018 a team of six coaches and students set out to hold lacrosse development clinics and introduced an alternative clean water source to our program school at the Butula Hekima Academy in western Kenya.
Hearing the student's stories and their appreciation just an hour after the last practice ended I knew we had choose the right place to grow the sport of lacrosse. The 200+ students who participated in our clinics and practices had growth this week and made new friends, shedding light on the way a sport can bring togther kids as well as a school in tough times.
I felt compelled to bring some lacrosse sticks with me to Takuapa, Thailand to see what my old students were made of. Although my personal holiday, I couldn't avoid work and spent hours a day with students at the private ENG clinic playing lacrosse. It was like I hadn't left Colorado and still had someone to play with!
