Video: National Guard Supports Native American Youth at Lacrosse Camp
The Minnesota Swarm Professional Lacrosse Team, Minnesota Army National Guard and the Fond du Lac Band of Chippewa have partnered to bring Lacrosse back to the Tribal Communities. These partners look at this unique venture as a way of offering a healthy alternative to much that afflicts our children, to include gangs, drugs, violence and obesity. The camp helped players develop their stick skills and learn offensive and defensive strategies from Minnesota Swarm players, coaches and staff while preserving the heritage of the game of Lacrosse! Guardsmen, nutritionists and camp counselors taught classes on Resiliency, Risk Reduction and Suicide Prevention during this week-long camp. Produced by Sgt. John J. Angelo III.
