Last weekend the TCL and Loxley team had an amazing time at the spring youth training camp at the Nakorn Nayok province with lots of activities and fun games for both the kids and staff. This event was held at the Rong Rien Nai Roi Jor Por Ror with great facilities and helpful staff to assist us which made it a fantastic trip! Not only did the kids get to enjoy the countryside, train and play lacrosse, they also got to visit sites such as: The Rangsit Science Museum and Rong Rien Nai Roi Jor Por Ror War Museum which was both educational and fun! To give you an idea of what the program of the training trip was like here’s a rough sample of the schedule:
Morning Run (6:30-7:15 am)
Leadership activities ( Morning-afternoon)
-Walk Rally (4 stations)
-Character Building activities indoor (Duck Home Invasion activity, Newspaper tower building activity, Build the longest line as a team from objects on body and meditation)
Afternoon practice (4:30-6:30 pm)
Indoor Bon Fire (After dinner)
So to sum it up, here are brilliant photos taken by our staff and as you can see.. not only did the kids enjoy the trip.. the TCL and Loxley staff looked like they had a blast as well!
TCL kids having fun in the summer with penalty shoot out and capture the flag at the end! School’s starting soon and we’re playing lots of different games like capture the flag and fun team relays. Know any interesting games for kids? Shoot us some ideas!
After collecting images from the game day at Chulalongkorn University Stadium, one of our member decided to create campaign-like images showing the kids and their fearless faces and gutsy attitude. Let us know what you think? Maybe some t-shirt/poster ideas coming up?
That’s right guys, we have got the exciting video highlights of the TCL event at Chulalongkorn University’s stadium. We got the kids pumped up with some great tunes, visitors from different Thai school seeing lacrosse for the first time, kids showing their dancing skills, some prep talk from the coaches and an American singing Thai country music. You’ll be missing out if you don’t watch this video!
Please come support young atheletes! The Wat Klong Toei Koalas are playing a game against each other. It’s going to be epic, it’s going to be wild, it’s going to be John Nutt singing Thai country songs!
Just a quick update on how the Klong Toei Koalas are doing.. here are some photograph of the recent practice session. You would have to agree that they are looking more and more professional everyday! We have incorporated helmets and goalie stick for the goalkeepers and they seem to enjoy playing with it.
As in every team, a mascot plays a vital part in team’s moral. However, instead of the school administration deciding on a mascot to represent Wat Klong Toei Nai lacrosse team, TCL, along with the school agreed that it would be best to ask the kids themselves. The majority of the kids voted to have the Koala as their mascot and without a doubt; the Wat Klong Toei Nai Koalas is certainly a very catchy team name!
We have seen significant growth from the kids at Wat Klong Toei Nai School… from the very first day we taught them to throw and catch to the day that they played a full match. Now, the older kids are teaching the younger kids how to play which is amazing as we want the school to be able to sustain the lacrosse project we have built by the people within the school both the kids and teachers. Kids teaching kids is fantastic as they get to learn from a different perspective of lacrosse, that it is not only about winning but dedication, commitment and passion. As you can probably tell.. we are very proud of them!
We are a non-profit organization that is committed to giving people in Thailand a chance to play Lacrosse.
