Northeast Passage is offering Wheelchair Lacrosse Practices this summer. We are developing our Wheelchair Lacrosse skills and we would love for you to join us and see what the sport is all about. We will learn basic fundamental skills and play some games.
Wheelchair Lacrosse is played on a roller hockey rink or box lacrosse pad with eight players per side. It is played using a no-bounce ball and sports chairs or rugby chairs. Lacrosse is a new and challenging game for players interested in demanding, fast paced action. This sport packs a punch and involves speed, finesse and team work.
Equipment, including sports chairs and lacrosse equipment, will be provided. This clinic is open to all ages and abilities.
Unfortunately, due to COVID protocols, we are not able to offer Adaptive Waterskiing this summer. We plan to be back at it next season!
