Want to participate in your local community? Become a sponsor for Bowie Boys Lacrosse! and support youth in your area.
My name is Pete Mittelholzer and I am the 3rd-4th grade coach for Bowie Boys Lacrosse.
I'll be hosting 4 free clinics/ throw-arounds at Metro Park this July and August for boys and girls. We'll try to use a field close to the playscape off of Slaughter Lane. Clinics will be at 9-10am on the following Saturdays:
We'll just be working on passing, catching, shooting, and dodging. No need for helmets or mouth guards. If you have gloves, bring them. Beginners welcome. I'll have some spare sticks to hand out on a first-come, first-served basis.
