Players from the Middlebury Women’s and Men’s lacrosse teams visited Nicaragua earlier this month. The trip was organized through Lacrosse the Nations, a nonprofit organization dedicated to using “the lacrosse field as a platform to teach students valuable life skills and health education, while ultimately bringing joy to their lives.”
The students visited Managua, the capital city of Nicaragua, as part of Lacrosse the Nations’s Team LtN campaign, which is a “network of individuals, lacrosse players, and teams across the country who come together to help spread awareness and raise funds for our life skills, nutrition and scholarship programs in Costa Rica, Nicaragua, and the U.S.”
As part of their service trip, Middlebury Lacrosse players engaged in community service projects to help improve infrastructure in the organization’s partner schools, raised funds for scholarship programs, and played lacrosse with students.
