Adidas Lacrosse and Eastside Portland Lacrosse (EPL) are entering into a partnership to raise awareness of the sport of lacrosse to more kids in the North Portland and Eastside Portland communities. The partnership is intended to create easier access to the sport and many unique and memorable opportunities for families who live in these communities.

What: Lacrosse Clinic

For: Boys and Girls in 3rd to 8th Grade

When: Thursday, November 10th from 4 to 6 p.m. (3rd/4th graders playing from 4:00-4:30, the 5th/6th graders playing from 4:30-5:00, and the 7th/8th graders playing from 5:00-5:30)

Where: Adidas Village, 5055 N Greeley Ave, Portland, OR 97217

Signup: The clinic has limited space, so signup is first-come, first-served within each age group. If your child is interested, please use this short sign-up form.

The clinic will be staffed by former local high school and college players. The kids that attend the clinic will receive a Starter Kit that comes equipped with new equipment donated by Adidas that a player is required to have to play the sport. The clinic will introduce the fundamentals to playing lacrosse (learning to catch, throw, and shoot on goal) and be a fun time for all the kids attending!

Most importantly, the players will get to meet, learn from, and play with a surprise guest who is the new face of adidas Lacrosse in America! He currently plays in the Major Lacrosse League (MLL), was a two-time Tewaaraton finalist (College Lacrosse MVP award), and represents diversity to the sport. He will be helping to run the clinics and there will be a photo and autograph session after the clinic for all of the
attendees. The kids might even get a chance to test their shot speed against his! It will be an unforgettable experience! Remember to bring your phone/camera to capture the smiles.

The photo and autograph session will be from 5:30-6:00 p.m. There will be food and drinks for the players and their parents. All families will receive a pass to the Adidas Employee Store that is located right next to the field.
