WPRD recently teamed up with Frederick County Parks and Recreation, Clarke County Parks and Recreation, Shenandoah County Parks and Recreation, Powhatan School, the Sportsplex and Shenandoah County Lacrosse to form the Shenandoah Valley Youth Lacrosse League.
WPRD Athletics Coordinator Jennifer Justice says the collaboration of different departments and organizations made sense for many reasons. “Everyone, within our own organizations, is trying to bring the sport of lacrosse to the Northern Shenandoah Valley. Lacrosse is extremely popular in places like Loudoun County and Charlottesville. We thought if we combined our resources we could give kids in our area the chance to learn this fast growing sport without having to travel so far.”
