ARNOLD, MD – Anne Arundel Community College Riverhawk Men’s Lacrosse Team welcomed local Tiger Cub Scouts of Pack 414 out onto the turf this past Thursday night.
Chartered by St. Jane Frances Church of Pasedena, Maryland the group of first grade Tiger Cubs was in need of assistance in earning their “Games the Tiger Play” achievement. To obtain this new achievement, the boys needed to learn about a new sport while focusing on the ideals of teamwork, good sportsmanship, and the concepts of winning AND losing.
From personal favorites and physical education classes, many of the boys have been involved in sports such as baseball, basketball, and soccer but have had little to no experience with the game of lacrosse.
Assembling right on the field, the Tiger Cubs had their well-prepared questions for Coach Jason Grace and our men’s lacrosse team. They were interested in the physicality allowed during gameplay and the various positions and equipment that our team used.
Upon discovering that our team had designated “Captains,” the boys were also curious to what extra roles these chosen few had. Dylan Mansur explained to the Cub Scouts, that as Captain, it was important that he acted as a leader on and off the field for his teammates, ensured that everyone was well-mannered, and respectful. Much like the goals and practices found with being a Tiger Cub, Dylan explained how it was important that they were constantly helping each other to become a better person.
After receiving some player autographs and AACC Riverhawk Sunglasses the Tiger Cubs lined up and said their thank you and good byes to our team. It was a fun and positive experience for both groups and we were glad to be given the opportunity to help out others in our community.
Our Athletic Department and Men’s Lacrosse team wish the Tiger Cub Scouts of Pack 414 the best of luck on their path to completing all other achievements for their Tiger Cub Rank Badge!
