High Sierra Lacrosse to host coaches clinic Saturday
U.S. Lacrosse will host a Level 1 instructional coaching clinic on Saturday at Bishop Manogue High School in Reno.
The Saturday clinic will be held from 9 a.m. to noon. Aided by grant funding from the High Sierra Lacrosse Foundation, there is no charge to attend the clinic, other than registration as a U.S. Lacrosse member.
Douglas fielded its first girls high school/middle school team this past spring and a boys club is organizing for its first season. Referees are also needed.
