Louisville, Kentucky – The Kentucky Stickhorses are a professional box (indoor) lacrosse them that will call Freedom Hall home. Trinity High School’s head coach, Pete Schroeder, will lead the Stickhorses. The season starts in January and runs through April.
On January 7, 2012 at 7pm the Stickhorses will host an Exhibition night that will introduce the organization to the public. The event will be family friendly and features lots of giveaways for the fans. The coaching staff, dance team, mascot and some very hopeful players will be in attendance. The culmination of the evening will be a black/ white scrimmage that will serve as the final tryout for the team. The scrimmage is also significant as Louisville’s first exposure to box lacrosse, featuring physical, fast-paced action that will be enjoyable to fans of all ages.
Coach Schroeder is excited to put the players through the tryout process with fans in the stands. “The opportunity to see these players go head to head on our home turf is going to be the most intense tryouts we could give them,” said Schroeder. Potential players will travel in from all over the country as well as Canada to vie for roster spot with the Kentucky Stickhorses.
The team will compete in the newly formed North American Lacrosse League (NALL), which showcases the best of professional indoor lacrosse. The Stickhorses will compete against franchises from Charlotte, Jacksonville, Hershey and Wilkes-Barre/ Scranton for the NALL World Championship.
