Fields of Growth: A Day In The Lax…In Uganda (Video)

This Summer Fields Of Growth (FTL) visited Uganda to teach and spread the game of lacrosse. Fields of Growth works with the close-knit lacrosse community throughout the world to build relationships with some of the top athletes with some of the most vulnerable children in the world. Through this relationship the Uganda Lacrosse Union was created through Makerere Business School, one of the top schools in East Africa.

These volunteers, which included Kevin Dugan and Johnny Christmas, taught the students basic skills such as catching and passing. Eventually, FTL organized one of the first official lacrosse games on Ugandan soil. This video highlights the trip. Enjoy!

Lacrosse Playground

In 2009, Adam O’Neill, Harry Alford and Thomas Alford launched Lacrosse Playground as the preeminent site for lacrosse gearheads. For years Lacrosse Playground provided lacrosse fans with tutorials and tips on how to string a lacrosse head, up-close looks at the gear the top players used and sneak peeks at equipment and uniforms before they were released. More than 10 years and millions of visits later, Lacrosse Playground has relaunched with a focus on storytelling. Our mission is to provide comprehensive coverage of the latest lacrosse news, share insights into the sports betting and fantasy lacrosse world and showcase the lifestyles and personalities of the sport of lacrosse through articles, videos and podcasts.
