SCHUYLERVILLE — The Albany FireWolves Lacrosse Club recently spent three days at Schuylerville Elementary School, helping to introduce the game of lacrosse to students in grades 3-5.
The FireWolves are members of the East Division of the National Lacrosse League, and plays its home games at MVP Arena in Albany. The team’s volunteer initiative, “Part of the Pack,” is a program that provides opportunities for area schools or lacrosse clubs to work with the FireWolves on learning the basics of the sport, enhance skill development, and interact with professional players in a casual atmosphere.
Students in grades 3-5 physical education classes with teachers Morgan Cornell, Julianne Torres, and John Wilson all participated in the ‘Part of the Pack’ experience.
Schuylerville families have also been invited to the team’s home game against the Toronto Rock on March 25. Tickets are available for district families at a discounted cost of $15. Students will also join the team on the field for player introductions and the National Anthem.
