These is no cost for the clinics, but each person is asked to bring an unwrapped toy, article of clothing, gift card or book. There also will be a 50/50 raffle to benefit Leake & Watts Services Inc .
Participants must bring their own lacrosse equipment, and there are limited loaners for those who do not have equipment. Those who cannot attend may donate to the cause by dropping off a gift for Toys for Tots at the On Track Sports Center.
