The New Mexico Lacrosse Association is holding a free lacrosse clinic for young athletes in the area.

The clinic takes place Saturday, Feb. 4, from 2:30-4:30 at Sandia Prep, 532 Osuna Road NE in Albuquerque, and is open to boys and girls of all skill levels, ages 5-18. NMLA will provide equipment, but participants are welcome to bring their sticks if they have them.

The clinic is led by experienced lacrosse coaches and high school lacrosse players, who will provide instruction on the fundamentals of the sport, including stick handling, passing and shooting. Participants will also have the opportunity to practice their skills in small-sided games.

“Lacrosse is the fastest growing sport in the U.S.,” said Matthew Montoya, president of the New Mexico Lacrosse Association. “We can’t wait for it to grow in New Mexico.”

The New Mexico Lacrosse Association is a non-profit organization dedicated to promoting the sport of lacrosse and providing youth in the community with the opportunity to learn and play the sport.
