Carolina Polocrosse was thrilled to be featured in an article in the Northwest Observer earlier this month to help promote our Greensboro area beginner clinic on March 4th. You can read the entire article here.
The clinic was an incredible success with over 60 people in attendance, including both club members and new riders coming to try out the sport.
