Lacrosse, the fastest growing sport in America according to the NCAA, is coming to Walton County to the Boys & Girls Club.
In order to garner excitement, Boys & Girls Club Board Member Katie Downey arranged for members of the Club to be introduced to the sport and attend a Georgia Swarm game.
“The physical skills for lacrosse are the same as for basketball. These kids already have the skills they need, they just need to be taught stick work and the rules,” Downey said.
Downey is working with equipment providers to donate equipment to the club to cut down start up costs.
