Yellowstone Academy Campus — Exciting. Inspirational. Energizing.
The things that happened from the minute we stepped on the Yellowstone academy campus. We drive up and there on the sign for the school announcements is a note Welcoming Mr. Casey Powell. It was awesome. The kids were so fired up to have him there and they really had a desire to learn. Friday after noon was an introduction to the game and a lot of skill work. Casey put the kids through all of his traditional stick work drills and the boys and girls did a great job. Most of them have never seen a lacrosse stick before, but they were open to the game and wanted to learn.
Saturday morning was all about the speed game. We split them into teams and went on to the game. The little things that Casey taught the day before were on display and the kids loved playing.
We had a great trip. Something that I hope we will be able to do in areas all over the world. Casey Powell is the true ambassador of this game and his style, personality and work ethic transcends to all ages any where he goes.
The Casey Powell World Lacrosse Foundation went into Houston with a goal to share the game, support those who want to learn more about it and inspire others to be better at life and at the game. I really think for those students, teachers and parents at Yellowstone we were able to accomplish our goals for the weekend.
Thank you Houston for hosting us and we hope to be back soon.
