Our friends and frequent collaborators Lacrossing Barriers were in Siksika on July 25th and 26th joining us for our youth day camp at the Deerfoot Sportsplex. Scott Godfrey brought along with him Max Neeson, Graydon Hogg and Adam Thistlethwaite from The University at Albany in New York. Along with the Lacrossing Barriers staff, they spent the afternoon with the kids playing and teaching the kids about lacrosse through drills and games. Dr. Pearl Yellow Old Woman-Healy also presented Scott with a gift, a ribbon shirt as a thank you for his contributions.
“So, the players coming with Lacrossing Barriers are from the University of Albany Great Danes. They’re a division one school. They have a very, very strong tradition of incorporating, the heritage, and culture of the creator’s game, the medicine game (Lacrosse). Their head coach is on the Haudenosaunee National team staff.”Scott Godfrey, Director, Lacrossing Barriers
Scott and Lacrossing Barriers have joined us here in Siksika many times over the past year and a half.
