Only few people in the Netherlands are familiar with lacrosse. It is even harder to meet someone who goes crazy for someone like Jason Coffman or Kylie Ohlmiller. Lacrosse is quite unknown in the Netherlands, unlike the United States and Canada, where it is strongly embedded in the sports culture. Lacrosse is also a true summer sport, with a growing popularity especially within high school and the NCAA in the United States.
Exciting to see our son grow, as a athlete and person, physically and mentally.It is a great opportunity!
