M-A club holds Lacrosse Day event

The Menlo Atherton Youth Lacrosse Club will hold a Youth Lacrosse Day on Sunday, March 20, at Menlo-Atherton High School to introduce local families to the sport of lacrosse though a variety of activities, said Jeff Kangas, president of the lacrosse club.

Among the events, he said, will be mini-clinics by lacrosse players from Stanford and San Jose State; contests, such as fastest shot (measured with radar gun); a raffle and giveaways; and a regular season game between the Menlo Atherton Grizzlies and the San Francisco Tigers.

The local club is the newest member of the Northern California Junior Lacrosse Association, Mr. Kangas said. The club has about 70 players, ranging in age from 5 to 11, playing on four boys and girls teams.

The event will be held at M-A's turf stadium. Mini-clinics and other activities are scheduled from 2 p.m. to 3:30 p.m., and the game from 3:30 p.m. to 4:30 p.m.
