About the Prairie Island Lacrosse Program
The Minnesota Swarm founded the year-round Prairie Island Lacrosse Program in 2010. Swarm coaches and players visited the reservation on a weekly basis to help develop not only the fundamentals of lacrosse, but also instill life skills such as the importance of education and abstinence from drugs and alcohol.
