Free Lacrosse Clinic & 2nd Annual Lacrosse Cup
March 17 & 18, 2019, Anatolia College Alumni Soccer Field
Nicknamed “the fastest sport on two feet”, lacrosse is a fast-paced and competitive team sport that has its origins in the Native American sport which communities would play in preparation for war. The goal of the game is similar to that of many sports – to get the ball in the net of the opposite team using a special stick.
Anatolia College and the American College of Thessaloniki - ACT play a significant role in spreading the sport of lacrosse in Greece by creating an Anatolia High School club lacrosse team and organizing games and clinics. With efforts starting in 2017 to bring lacrosse to the school level of play along with collaboration with the Greece Lacrosse Association and the Federation of International Lacrosse (FIL), Anatolia College organized the first lacrosse clinic.
Another free clinic will take place on Sunday 17th, March, in the premises of Anatolia College Alumni Soccer Field. The clinic is open for coaches, athletes, and all interested parties, and it will be led by Jason Pereles, General Manager of Greece Lacrosse Association and Christina Daniskas, International Programs Fellow at ACT and Anatolia Lacrosse Team trainer and coordinator.
The next day, Monday, March 18th,, Anatolia College and ACT – American College of Thessaloniki organize Greece’s 2nd Annual Lacrosse Cup.
The games start at 10 am at the Anatolia Alumni Soccer Field, with the participants being the 2nd Polichni High school, 1st Pylaia High School and Anatolia College.
