Biloxi Mississippi Youth Lacrosse Needs Your Help !!
by Coach Mark Rocco
(Gulf Coast of Mississippi)
Morning Lacrosse Fans ,
My name is Mark Rocco . I am the Founder of the Ocean Springs HS & U15 Lacrosse Program here on the Gulf Coast of Mississippi . We are the "FIRST"
and only program in the state of Mississippi . Five years ago the Lacrosse Community came together with unbelievable donations to help us get started .
We started with 15 players , played our first game , then Hurricane Katrina showed up . We Survived !! The Sport of Lacrosse Survived !!
We now have 135 players including girls . We have had 2 players this year going onto play in College & 1 player going to Manchester England to play for the USA West U19 Team in the World Games . Now that Ocean Springs has stabilized , I am moving on to another Gulf Coast Town . "Biloxi Mississippi"
I presently have 30 High School players getting together every Saturday with just Sticks & Balls that I have purchased with my own money .
There are new players coming out every Saturday . I have the Head Coach from LSU & Millsaps College that have offered to put on a FREE CAMP
for the boys at the end of July 2010 .
So , I'm calling on the Lacrosse Community for your help with any Equipment Donations you can provide for Biloxi kids . It could even be Loaner Equipment
that will be returned to you after the camp is over . All of the boys have sticks . They need Helmets & Pads . They ages range from 13 to 17 years old .
I know they would be Extremely Grateful for Any & All Donations .
Again I am always grateful for any donation that will help a child that is interested in playing the Greatest Sport in the World . "Lacrosse"
My contact info is below if anyone has any questions . Thanks Again !!
