A popular sport has been growing in our area

Posted: Updated:
RICHLAND, Wash.-- -

A popular sport has been growing in our area. On Saturday the Three Rivers Lacrosse Teams held an open clinic at Badger Mountain Community Park in Richland. Coaches come out and taught players the basics of the game.

Some of the younger teams have doubled in players since last year. Assistant Coach Rob Hart says "we have I counted 22 3rd graders today. Most of these kids are probably new to this sport. We typically sit there and say if we can get a stick in your hand, you'll fall in love with the sport!"

Teams are made up of players in 3rd grade to high school for boys and girls. They're still recruiting more players for the upcoming season. The group plans on holding another workshop this month.
