The Genesee Community College Men’s Lacrosse program held a lacrosse clinic for a group of approximately 35 children from the Tonawanda Reservation this past Saturday, September 29th. The clinic was in conjunction with the GCC Native American Student Group and served as a community service event for the two-time NJCAA National Tournament appearing Cougars.
“We wanted to get our program involved with the community in the area, specifically the Native Americans from around the area,” said GCC head coach Dave Hoover. “Since our team has always felt that Native Americans can help build our program, we wanted to give back to them.”
Genesee currently has five Native Americans on their roster for 2012-13.
The clinic ran from 11am until 1pm and included basic lacrosse instruction from 12 players currently on the GCC Men’s Lacrosse team. After instruction, lunch was provided for the athletes.
