4:30 PM-5:30 PM
This afternoon, I met with my facilitator, Andy Flood, at Starbucks and we discussed the overall basics of my clinic. I took notes as we discussed the overall number of kids I expect to attend, as well as the different drills I should run for each age group.
When we first discussed how many kids could attend, I originally said I was hoping for about 30-40. We then concluded that I should send out emails to the different Jr. Eagles Lacrosse teams as well as give out flyers to all of the kids.

6 PM-6:30 PM
Today I finalized the first email that I will be sending out to parents to spread the word about my lacrosse clinic.
When Andy and I talked about how I was going to advertise my clinic, he suggested that I reach out to both the kids and the parents, and the best way to get the word out to parents is through email. So I emailed the director of the Jr. Eagles, Lenny Scranton, and asked that he may forward my advertisement email to all of the parents. Andy also suggested that I send a few out closer to the actual clinic date in case people forget.
This is the final email that I sent to Mr. Scranton so that he can send this email out to the Jr. Eagle Lacrosse parents.

4:30 PM-6:30 PM
Today I finalized my order for the t-shirts I will be selling, and I also completed the facility request form so I could have permission to use the Etowah East field.
When I first started working today, I started researching some good local charities. Then, I remembered of the tragedies that have struck Louisiana in the recent days because of the hurricane. Since I have family from Louisiana, it all seemed right. I designed the t-shirt and figured out how many to order. I decided to order 10 shirts of each size (Youth small, youth medium, adult small, adult medium, and adult large). After I completed the order, I finished up the facility request form. I called my facilitator to make sure everything I put down was correct, such as the times we had agreed on and other specifics.
This is the final design that I created for the t-shirts.

5 PM-6 PM
Today I made the flyer I will be passing out to the Jr. Eagle Lacrosse teams. I made one copy and then had to go up to the UPS store to make 100 copies.
Andy and I agreed making flyers to hand out to all the kids was a good idea for advertisement, so I completed the design for it. I texted with him to make sure I included all the specifics and to make sure I was not forgetting anything.
This is what the final draft of my flyer looks like. I will be passing these out to the Jr. Eagle teams at their practices in the next few days.

I went up to the Middle School today to catch the end of the U11 practice and I passed out flyers to all the kids.
I passed out flyers to all of the kids and answered any questions they had about the clinic. Some asked what drills we would be doing, and I told them what I knew so far because I had not finished all the planning. I also talked to a few parents to help spread the word.

Today I went back to the Etowah East field to catch the end of both the U13 and U15 practices and handed out flyers to both teams.
I went and talked to the older kids, and several said that they already had plans on the day of my clinic, but others said they will come. I also talked to my friends David and Austin who coach those teams and asked if they could possibly come out and help coach the clinic.
Wednesday, August 31, 2016
Today I went back up to the Middle School and talked to the whole U9 team and passed out flyers.
Today when I talked to the U9 kids, they had a lot more questions about the clinic than the older kids, and I tried my best to answer what I could. Some of them already told me that they would be there.

4:30 PM- 5:30 PM
Today Andy and I did a quick follow up to make sure I was still on track with the advertisements as well as planning.
Andy came by to make sure everything was in order, we talked about how I was going to advertise my clinic as well as who else I would get involved. I began working up a few emails to the head director of the Jr. Eagles program to reach out to all the parents. Andy also suggested that I invite some of the players from the Cherokee Youth Lacrosse Program, but then we concluded that I did not have access to their kids or parents, and it would be easier to keep it within the Etowah program.

5:15 PM-6 PM
Today I worked up a few emails once again to be sent to Lenny Scranton so he can forward them to the parents of the Jr. Eagles.
I worked up two reminder emails, one to be sent out this Tuesday, September 6 and one to be sent out Thursday, September 8, both as reminders for the clinic. In both of my emails I included answers to common questions such as the time and location for my clinic as well as an explanation as to what charity I was donating to and how I would be collecting funds.

6 PM-7 PM
Today after practice, I met with a few of my lacrosse teammates helping out at the clinic and we discussed the whole plan.
It is very important to have a good plan well in advance before the event, so I met with the guys helping me out this Saturday to make and go over the clinic schedule. We assigned everyone to a certain age group and also made a schedule for all of the drills we are going to do at the clinic. We made sure all the drills were age appropriate, and we also made sure there were enough water breaks for the kids to stay hydrated throughout the clinic.
This was the schedule I made with the help of my teammates who will be at the clinic on Saturday.

Tonight my mom and I made some posters for the clinic tomorrow to promote my “Lax for Louisiana” fundraiser.
I had to have my mom help me create these posters because I am not the most artistic person, so she was able to help me draw and create designs on the poster.
This was one of the posters that I made for advertisement for my fundraiser.

8 AM-12 PM
Myself and the other coaches got to the field around 7:50 and started setting up. The clinic itself was 9-11, and then we stayed until 12 cleaning up and making sure we did not leave anything behind.
When we first got there, we set up the tent where we had a sign-in table, and this was also where any donations for the fundraiser were given. Next we set up the goals on the field and got any other equipment we needed. This included balls, extra sticks and gear. We then greeted the kids and their parents as they arrived. At 9, I gathered everyone together for a brief introduction of myself and the coaches, and we got started. Everyone started off with simple stick work drills to get warmed up. We then moved into more position specific drills. This provides more instruction for the kids. I helped coach the defense along with 2 of my other coaches, while the others worked closely with the offense, completing the drills I instructed them to do. We then started some fun drills, including a shooting drill involving a radar gun so the kids could have a competition to see how fast they could shoot. To finish up, we did more physical but age-appropriate drills and games. Just before 11, I called everyone back together and thanked them all for coming out, then explained to them what exactly the clinic was for: to not only bring together to lacrosse community here at Etowah, but help those in need in Louisiana. Afterwards, the coaches and I cleaned up all of the goals, tents, equipment, or any trash left behind by the kids.
This is me giving some closer instruction to one of the kids.

Today I went back through the funds and counted all of the money to make sure we had the right amount, and I also drafted a letter to the church in Louisiana to which I am sending the money to.
While going through the donations, I made a note of all of the families who contributed to the project and in my letter I mentioned all of the families involved so the people in Louisiana know that many people here in Georgia are here to help. I had to calculate the costs of the t-shirts ordered and I paid myself back for them, and in total I will be sending around $700 to the Louisiana flood relief program.

5:30 PM-6:30 PM
Tonight I went to my facilitator, Andy’s house for a follow-up meeting and to complete the paperwork needed to finish the project.
While I was there, we discussed the project and we both agreed that overall it was very successful and not only did the kids have a good time, but they improved and we were able to help bring the lacrosse community close together.
My facilitator and I after the meeting.s an explanation as to what charity I was donating to and how I would be collecting funds.
