Free girls lacrosse clinics in Biloxi

Middle school and high school aged girls in the Biloxi area can see what all the excitement around girls lacrosse is all about.

Saturday, July 17th and 31st, Biloxi Girls Lacrosse is holding free clinics for any interested players who want to experience lacrosse for the first time, featuring USA Lacrosse Curriculum, and put on by local coaches and programs.

Girls lax has been on the Mississippi Coast since 2010 as a part of the Gulf Coast Girls Lacrosse League.

Ocean Springs Girls Lacrosse will host the clinics in hopes of garnering enough interest to begin a Biloxi girls team. OSGL Assistant Coach Vernon Stewart said, “So lacrosse is one of the nation’s fastest growing sports. We have a very successful program in Ocean Springs and Biloxi, Mississippi is a prime location to get little girls involved in more team sports. We want to offer more opportunities for girls on the Mississippi Gulf Coast to be exposed and to experience lacrosse because it’s such a great sport. It can be used for many different other sports, just the skills that you learn in lacrosse. So, it’s something that we’re really excited about expanding on the Mississippi Gulf Coast.”

The clinics are free and equipment will be provided. For more information check out the Biloxi Girls Lacrosse Facebook page.
