Girls Invited to Learn Lacrosse for Free

The department will hold a free lacrosse clinic for girls ages 8 through 14 on Saturday, May 7, from 10 a.m. to 1 p.m. at the Westover Community Center, located at 1301 Jahnke Road. The clinic is co-sponsored by the department and Nick Costas, whose daughter plays lacrosse at St. Catherine’s School. The Costas are eager to share their love of the sport with Richmond girls and want to introduce the game to as many girls in the city as possible.
Girls do not need to have prior experience playing the game, but should arrive ready to learn and play. All equipment needed for the clinic will be provided, and several volunteer coaches will be on hand to teach the game and assist the girls.
The clinic is free to attend, however advance registration is recommended by calling 804-232-1982 or e-mailing
