We woke up again to some scorching temperatures in Ashkelon, Israel. This day, July 4, 2013 marked the first joint youth clinic for the Israeli youth with members of Israel lacrosse and Turkey Lacrosse. Both programs joined forces to show the youth the beautiful game of lacrosse. We spent all day with the kids. This was a great experience not only for my Turkish players but for Israeli players as well.

The kids at first were a bit shy but warmed up to us rather quickly and most of them ended up coming to our game that evening between the Turkey national team and Israel national team. Our involvement in the day’s clinic showed how sports can bring people and nations together. It was a great success.
