Another session that I really enjoyed was a Lacrosse teaching session that was taught by two Syracuse University lacrosse players. When I was reading through the classes that were being taught at the same time as this, I came across that it was lacrosse which is a sport I love and would love to coach, and that it was being taught by Syracuse University Lacrosse players which I thought was awesome. The two players that taught the session were Gairet Myers and JoJo Marasco. I knew of JoJo because I am a huge Syracuse lacrosse fan so I chatted with him throughout the session because when we were doing the drills he noticed that I had played before so we reminisced about high school and college lacrosse. The majority of the session dealt with basic skills such as passing, catching, obtaining ground balls, and shooting. They taught the people at the session the correct ways in which to do them, and then showed us multiple activities in which they could incorporate each skill. Overall I had a blast at this session even though I already knew how to do the basic skills the correct way because I played lacrosse, however, some of the drills and activities we did I had not seen before so I still learned a great deal.
Overall I think the Conference was awesome, and whatever PE students/teachers that decided not to go missed out. There is so much information that can be learned at these conferences that can only make your lessons and activities better and you overall as a better PE advocate!
