To the Editor:

I would like to offer a great, big thank you to the New Milford youth lacrosse program and everyone involved in the recent lacrosse camp.

We have friends participating in the camp who suggested I bring my 6-year-old son down to watch to see if he liked lacrosse.

This group of boys, young men and coaches could not have been more wonderful to my son.

A few very special thank yous to the coaches who included him and talked to him about the sport itself; to Justin and Christian Zarcynski, who let my son borrow a lacrosse stick and gloves and spent time teaching him some basics; and to Phil Dobson, who talked with my son, brought him one of his helmets to keep and spent time with him one-on-one playing catch.

Needless to say, my son was very impressed and so excited to be a lacrosse player.

I hope to spend a lot more time with the New Milford youth league and the great "lacrosse boys" in the years to come.

You are an outstanding group of boys, young men and coaches.
