TAMPA, Fla. - University of Tampa women's lacrosse player, Mallary Weinsz returns to campus after traveling abroad for two weeks in order to grow the game and teach lacrosse to the youth of Malaysia.
The Worthington, Ohio native is no stranger to working with children, as she used to work as a youth lacrosse referee. Weinsz was given this opportunity through a nonprofit called Kids Lacrosse the World founded by Elliot Couch. Their mission, "to grow the love of lacrosse at an international grassroots level by building long-term sustainable programs as a means of youth development through empowerment and leadership education".
To commemorate her experience, Weinsz wrote a blog that is now being featured on IWLCAs Behind the Whistle Blog series.
