Seminole Lacrosse and Gait Lacrosse are proud to announce two Saturday Fall Lacrosse Clinics for 5thto 10thgrade boys on September 28thand October 12th at Jack Jouett Middle School. The clinics will be divided by age, with 5th/6thgraders and 7th/8thgraders from 9AM-11AM and 9th/10thgraders from 11AM to 1PM. Registration is now open at www.seminolelax.org; the registration fee is $50 for both sessions. All proceeds benefit the animals at the Charlottesville-Albemarle SPCA.
Clinics will be taught by John Pritzlaff, a 2013 Critter Ball Contestant, former two-time DIII All-American and 2010 World Game Participant. John is competing with his rescue dog Winnie for the title of Best in Show in the Charlottesville-Albemarle SPCA’s Best In Show Critter Ball to be held on Friday, October 18that the Castle Hill Cider Barn in Keswick. Critter Ball contestants are competing with their pets for dollar donation votes in hopes of raising the most money for the animals at the SPCA and capturing the Best in Show title. Details about Critter Ball can be found at www.caspca.org
John Pritzlaff says, “Winnie and I are teaming up to raise as much money as possible for the animals at the SPCA. Since I don’t know as many tricks as Winnie, I am volunteering my coaching talent to hold these lacrosse clinics as a fundraiser. Each dollar raised from these clinics count as a vote for Winnie and I and a donation for the animals at the SPCA.”
The mission of the Charlottesville-Albemarle SPCA is to provide a safe and nurturing environment for the lost, abandoned, and homeless animals of the City of Charlottesville and the County of Albemarle and to increase the number of these animals being placed in appropriate, loving, and permanent homes through adoptions, foster care, and outreach and to set a standard of excellence and leadership in shelter animal care, humane education, and progressive animal welfare programs.
