LAX clinic helps improve skills, grow game

SAVANNAH, GA (WTOC) -

Lacrosse may not have a huge following in Savannah just yet, but a group of young girls and coaches hope that will soon change.

Nearly 20 girls' lacrosse players beat the heat Saturday afternoon at Morris Field for a day-long clinic to improve their fundamentals and skills.

"Most of them have some basic fundamentals, and we always want to reinforce those," says clinic coach Heather Eakins. "Maybe we can show some things that makes their game easier or more fun. If they can take just two or three things from today, I think they'll come out ahead."

While Eakins wanted to see the girls improve their game, she also hopes the clinic is another step towards growing the game in Savannah.

"You go back east, they might have 100 kids at a clinic like this. Here we're starting with about 20 to 25, and we're just going to watch it grow," Eakins says. "I think what this shows is that the sport is growing and there is a want for it."
