Lessans Lead Lacrosse in Ashkelon

We have a new sport in Ashkelon. Lacrosse!
On Sunday 14th August the Lessan family from Baltimore visited Ashkelon.
After touring the city  and visiting the second hand store, we headed to Marcelo's Sports center.
Marcelo invited the judo kids and suprised everyone by introducing two professional lacrosse stars, Max and Jeff, of the American-Israeli team from Jerusalem who just won the Israeli national league - Tel Aviv vs Jerusalem. (link) Max and  Jeff were accompanied by David Lasday who runs worldwide lacrosse clinics.
The Lessans brought lacrosse sticks and balls, and together with Jeff and Max, they taught the game to the local Ashkelon kids who were very excited to learn this strange new American sport!
