Members of the Rye boys’ lacrosse team visited the Don Bosco Community Center in Port Chester twice this month to introduce the sport to children from the Boys & Girls Club. The clinic was put into motion by Garnets’ senior Christian Bonaventura and his mother Linda. They came up with the idea one day on the way home from school.
“There was a surprisingly great response from all the kids at Don Bosco, many of whom had never seen a lacrosse stick or game,” said Christian Bonaventura. “All the kids wanted to learn and play as quickly as possible, so they could throw around with us or score a goal. It was a perfect experience for our team and the kids we met.”
