On Sunday, January 13, the Windham Youth Lacrosse Organization (WYLO) held their first of two lacrosse clinics at the Windham Middle School.
These free clinics are a great opportunity for third through eighth graders who either know the game of lacrosse very well, or those who are just starting out to learn the fundamentals of the game. The participant will learn from several coaches who are very knowledgeable with many years of experience in the sport.
Windham Youth Lacrosse Organization was started eight and a half years ago by a group of parents. Liza Libby, president of WYLO said part of the goal of the organization is to bring a love of sports to Windham with a focus on teaching and developing the players.
The organization’s goal is to prepare up and coming athletes in grades three through eight for strong participation in high school sports. The clinics aim to take that interest in lacrosse and develop it into something great that can help them later.
“The clinics offer kids who have never tried the sport to come and try it. We get a group of college and high school kids to come and help teach the younger kids,” explained Libby.
“We love for kids that are first time players to come and try a new sport – we want to help develop kids in the sport and also to be great teammates and have fun.”
The next clinic will be held on Sunday, January 27 at the Windham Middle School. The girls’ clinic will be held from 1 pm to 2:30 pm and the boys’ clinic will be offered from 2:30 pm to 4 pm. Equipment will be provided. Visit to register or for further information.
