The 2017 Sand Storm Lacrosse Festival took place this past weekend at the Empire Polo Club in Indio, CA. Many elite teams across the U.S. gathered to play first-class lacrosse - one of these teams was, our very own Colorado based, Denver Elite U15 Team.
From speaking to the players, there was one theme that quickly rose to utmost importance: the value of Team.
Where is 'team' found? Sure, 'team' plays during games and practices together. But we have realized that 'team' is found most in the ritual practices before and after the game. 'Team' is found while applying isplack, 'team' is found while huddling after a tough loss, 'team' is found in sharing moments and experiences, and 'team' is found in the ability to come together.
Thank you to the Denver Elite U15 Team and Cal Pro Sports for letting us be part of your team.
