Newport Beach Challenge Hopes to Jumpstart GTG Clinics in OC


The Newport Beach Challenge, presented by the Orange County Chapter of US Lacrosse, concluded Sunday after two days of exciting Grow the Game action.

On Saturday, about 30 girls showed up for two scrimmages, one for U15 players and another for U19 players. On Sunday, around 15 boys and girls grades K-3 came out for a free clinic.

Throughout both days, OC-US Lacrosse also collected gear donations to help further Grow the Game in Orange County.

The event, held at Newport Ridge Community Park in Newport Beach, hopes to be the first of many to come throughout the year at different locations around Orange County.
