First Adaptive Lacrosse Clinic comes to KeyBank Center

Posted at 6:46 PM, Jul 29, 2018

Bubba Vaccaro drove from Lockport with his mom, Tracy, to give lacrosse a try. 

"This is his first time actually with a stick," Tracy Vaccaro said.

And that's because before Sunday, there wasn't a place for Bubba to be able to learn how to play.  He lives with social disabilities, making it difficult to participate in recreational sports.

The clinic is an opportunity the Buffalo Bandits wanted to provide for kids and adults like Bubba, so they started the Buffalo Bandits Adaptive Lacrosse Clinic.  

Three Bandits players came out to work with forty adaptive players across two clinic sessions.  Forward Josh Byrne said that this is the least the Bandits can do to give back to the community.

The Bandits, players and their families all have high hopes--they see this clinic as a chance to possibly start an entire league during the team's regular season.
