Whangaparaoa College vs Pinehurst School 2

Whangaparaoa College had its first boys lacrosse game last week againts Pinehurst School 2 school.  A great day to see the old, used equipment on boys who are passionate about playing lacrosse.  Pinehurst 1 is the senior team and Pinehurst School 2 is the junior varsity team as the Americans call it.  Whangaparaoa College has a girls program, but Guy Oclee-Brown, who is a teacher and past lacrosse player was keen to get the sport going.  The United Lacrosse donation got the team started.   They all had a great game.

Whangaparaoa College get out for the first boys game.  This is great for the sport.  Love to see all these new players on the field.

Pinehurst School 2 lines up befor the game.  The referee lays out the rules, they shake and play the first game.



Westlake Boys Lacrosse First Practice Lacrosse Donations put to use

Westlake Boys High School Lacrosse have started lacrosse for the 2012 College Sport Boys lacrosse season.  Jack Hutton and Jim Collins have volunteered there time along with others to educate and teach the boys the skills they need to play Lacrosse.  Some used United Lacrosse equipment donations was put to use in practice.  A true team effort and nice to see another team playing lacrosse.


They came a long way in just two hours.  After some line drills, we got right into the first Westlake Boys Hight School Lacrosse scrimmage.   They all did well and had fun.


We had one goalie and G-Money stepped in at the far goal is you can see.   These practices happend every Sunday for many weeks before the season started.


At the other end we had a Goalie in training who did a great job.  Lucky to have someone who is able to step into the goalie role on the first day.

Colorado Lacrosse Donations To Auckland's North Shore of New Zealand

Colorado Lacrosse donations came from Jason Ellison, Nic Bevacqua and the rest of the team at  Tama Lacrosse in Colorado Springs, Colorado.  They have been collecting equipment from people all sorts of genrious folks.  They also have a newly opened store in Tama Lacrosse shop in Naiperville Illinois.   

In Boulder Colorado at Breakaway Sports Lacrosse,  Josh Sims organized the first United Lacrosse equipment collection event.  There was lots of stuff collected and a fun night had by all.   

Without United Lacrosse,the team at Tama Lacrosse, John Galvin at Breakway Sports, Ken Clausen of Warrior and Brine and others volunteering time to collect lacrosse equipment,  we wouldn't be able to build lacrosse in other parts of the world. 

All this has made it to the North Shore of  Auckland New Zealand where it has been distributed to Westlake Boys High School , Whangaparaoa College, and Pinehurst School's new second division team.  Heck thats over 30 new players we provide equipment to.  Love to see these kids out on the field enjoying the game.  Some of them had there first game on Friday last week.  Happy faces.

Thank You to all that are giving back to the game of Lacrosse!

Mountain Lakes Lacrosse Donations To Auckland's North Shore of New Zealand


We Traveled through to the USA in April visiting family and friends.   While visiting with Coach Tim Flynn, of Mt Lakes New Jersey Lacrosee, aka Laker's Lacrosse they came up with a huge donation to United Lacrosse.  Coach Flynn was busy getting ready for a High School Lacrosse playoff game but made the time to dig out the 21 lacrosse helmets and other various lacrosse gear.  In true Laker tradition, the helmet's came out from the dark depths under stairs at Briarcliff School next to the locker room.  

All helmets have been distributed on the North Shore of Auckland New Zealand.  Helmets have been distributed to  Westlake Boys High School , Whangaparaoa College, and Pinehurst School's new second division team.  These teams are competing in the Auckland College Sport competition for the first time this year.

Without lacrosse donations like this we wouldn't be able to grow the game!
