ATHENS, Ohio - The Bobcat lacrosse team will hold a pair of skills clinics during the 2006 season. The first, open to Ohio University students, faculty and staff, will take place following the Bobcats' game with UMBC on April 19 at 3 p.m. The second clinic will cater to Athens area students in grades 6-12 and will be held after a match-up with Penn State on April 23 at 1 p.m.
The clinics will be free of charge and all the necessary equipment will be provided. The team will teach the basic skills of lacrosse, including catching, cradling, throwing and shooting.
"Lacrosse is one of the fastest growing sports in the country," Ohio Head Coach Allison Valentino said. "We think this is a great opportunity for us to help the community become more aware of our sport. It's a chance for people who might not otherwise ever pick up a lacrosse stick to come out and try something new."
For more information on either clinic, contact Ohio Assistant Coach Jess Roguski by e-mailing firstname.lastname@example.org.
The Bobcats begin the season on Feb. 19 at ninth-ranked Maryland. Ohio makes its home debut on Sunday, Feb. 25 versus Duquesne at 4 p.m. Ohio plays all of its home games on Peggy Pruitt Field.
