A select group of year 4 and 5 children travelled to Riddlesdown Collegiate on Monday to learn a new sport – lacrosse.
Lacrosse is a sport where two teams compete using a funny looking stick, called a lacrosse stick, that has a mesh net at the end to catch the ball. Players use the lacrosse stick to catch, cradle, and pass the ball and try and score in the opponents’ goal. Lacrosse is especially popular in the USA and Canada.
Our kids had a great time learning some skills and how to play this sport for the first time. They even got a chance to play some matches at the end. Check out the pics below.
Thanks to the Croydon School Sports Partnership for hosting this fun event.
