Summer youth lacrosse program opens


In Hastings, students in grades seven through 12 have the option of playing lacrosse through the Hastings Lacrosse Club. Until last year, however, younger kids didn't have anywhere to try the game out, giving them very little time to develop their skills before trying to make the varsity high school team.
