Girls Lacrosse: Tribal West Promotion, Coaches Poll, Weekly Highlighted Games and Women's College Recap
I am going to say what we’ve all been thinking. When will it stop snowing?! Every game I’ve attended this season, I’ve seen many parents and fans with multiple layers, blankets and portable heaters. First, that speaks great lengths to our community and the support! Secondly, we are truly blessed to not see many injuries due to the weather conditions [knock on wood]. We will all be cold together and stick it out till we’re sweating in May!
Tribal West Lacrosse has an amazing promotion for our lacrosse community!!
Tribal West supports all ages and genders of lacrosse! If you have never been to Tribal West in Sandy Utah, then let me tell you a bit about them. Tribal West has an indoor shooting cage, with turf, shot clock and rebounder. Not to mention they are the "Home of the Great Ball Machine". “What is that?” Think of a 7 foot tall gumball machine but instead of gumballs it's lacrosse balls and prizes!!!! If you’re too far to make the trip to Sandy don’t worry, Tribal West has a great online store!
Thank you as always for subscribing and reading the Utah Lacrosse Report newsletter, we are brought to you by our sponsors Tribal West Lacrosse (website) & MinersTown Strength and Conditioning (website), who make the great coverage here at ULR possible!
