SPEED SKILL AGILITY GRACE TEAMWORK FINESSE
acrosse, the oldest sport in America, has emerged in the community and it is only gaining more and more momentum. Seen traditionally as an “East Coast” sport, the west coast has a huge weather advantage offering year-round play. It is said that you can find as much lacrosse as you can schedule and afford here in San Diego. Dennis Yeatman, of Rancho Bernardo, also known as “The Godfather of Lacrosse,” offered the first league for boys and girls in the area, and it is apparent his true passion for the sport has led to great fun, athleticism and sportsmanship right here in 92128. Matt Hunt, Director of RB Youth Lacrosse, and Laura Fortney and Theresa Smith, girls’ Directors, shared their background and vision along with details of upcoming opportunities for players, coaches, and volunteers. From first graders to adults, the sport, lends itself as a perfect way to build friendships, develop character, and share competitive spirit.
