Of all places to learn how to play lacrosse, I never dreamed it would be here in Nicaragua! I started working with the Lacrosse the Nations program in February at Club Hope. Each day my skills improve with the help of these kids. It is a very positive environment. We are always cheering each other on and help each other learn new skills. Last week we scrimmaged, and I scored one goal. (I’ve come a long way.) After the class one of the kids said his favorite moment of the day was watching me score a goal. I am just so glad I joined this program and have the opportunity to spend time with these kids.
