Y., August 22,1990 L a c r o s s e clin ic — lea r n in g & fu n By BOB GILFILLAN PENN YAN — If you could bot­ tle the energy and excitement of the 150 kids attending the annual Penn Yan Summer Lacrosse Clinic and convert it into a fossil fuel then maybe we could tell those folks in the Middle East to keep their old oil. But we just don’t have the tech­ nology. However, that in no way diminished the enthusiasm and sheer pleasure of the kids (who at­ tended the Aug. 13-16 clinic in four different age ^oups from 2nd grade through high school) as they received expert instruction and a healthy dollop of playing time to add to their enjoyment of the sport. As Harry Queener, coach of the Penn Yan Academy lacrosse team, noted, “We're stressing skills and fun. We’re working on the basic skills of passing and catching, cradling, and dodging.” Queener also commented that he and his coaches, who include Penn Yan Academy varsity players, college players, Penn Yan alumni, as well as Penn Yan JV Coach Eric Jensen, and Steve Trombley, coach of an undefeated Youth Box League team, stressed handling ground balls. “At any level of the game,” Queener explained as he looked over the Penn Yan Little League Football Field on Elm Street at the group of eager 5th and 6th graders as they practiced han­ dling the ball, “the team that wins ground balls, usually wins the game.” Another aspect of the sport that the clinic emphasized is teamwork. As Queener pointed out, “What we put into effect last night for the older kids and will go into ef­ fect for all age groups tonight — they have to pass the ball. “It’s called a game of ‘hippo’,” Queener continued, “you have to pass the ball within a four or five count; so I’ll be counting out there while I’m reffing and a t the count of five the ball has to go to some­ body else. It helps them (un­ derstand) teamwork.” In addition, Queener stated, “We teach them communication is your extra man on the field. If you communicate with each other then your a better team. (Lacros­ se) is definitely a team game and that’s something we feel is impor­ tant (to convey.)” In the middle of a practice field as he helped with the coach­ ing duties on the bright, sunny day, recent Penn Yan Academy grad and lacrosse standout Matt Bartlett, who will be attending Ithaca College this fall and will be playing college lacrosse next season, stated, “The kids have been great- Ymi can’t tench them anything tlail lliry ilon'l gn home and try. 'I’lnyVe always hustling,” Bartlett W 4 > n l on to sny, “You walk around town and you see the little kids with the (lacrosse) sticks in their hands. They’re al­ ways doing something (to improve their skills.) I was really surprised; I came here Monday (the day the clinic opened) and these little kids, the sticks are bigger than they are, and they’re working them like they been working them for years.” Also helping with the coaching, returning Penn Yan Academy senior Dave Howe, stated, “1 like working with the kids. The/re doing a nice job; they're worldng real herd. “We’ll stop them,\ Howe added, “if they’re doing something wrong and well show them (the correct way) and theyll do it the right way. It’s all been positive.” “I love it,” said Chris Hansen, 11, as he chewed some ice during a water break a t the clinic, “this is the third one (clinic) Fve b ^ n to. I think the other kids are having a lot of fun too.” Hansen, who is a ball boy for the Penn Yan varsity, also stated, “I know a lot of them (the high school players) and it’s just fun to have them around to help us.” Fully decked out in his lacrosse equipment, Brett Queener, 5, son of Coach Queener, piped up and said, “I’m learning lacrosse!” Asked what he liked best about the clinic, Brett responded, “I like eveiything!” “We’ve been stressing the fundamentals,\ said Penn Yan Academy JV Lacrosse Coach Jen­ sen, “b^ic passing and catching; cradling; a little bit of dodging. “The kids are veiy eager to learn,” Jensen added. In speaking of the increase in the popularity of lacrosse over the past few years, Jensen stated, “It’s a lot more popular with the kids. It was just never offered before. The interest might have been there before, but the kids weren’t able to play it before, a t this age, until Mr. Queener started this program.” “They really didn’t have any clinics when I was growing up,” said Penn Yan Academy alumnus and current Conesus College grid star, Brian Hobart, as he helped to man the concession stand. “These kids are getting a chance to play. 'They’re learning the fun­ damentals a t an earlier age. With this game, the more you have the stick in your hand the better you get.\ The climes were free and made possible through the contributions from the Penn Yan Lacrosse Club, Penn Yan businesses, and service organizations. Prizes were given out in each age group and free Popsicles were available following each session. RESUME SERVICES • C o m p o sition * Knnting - Mailing • J o b S e a r c h R.J. lANNELLO. M.S.
