ONONDAGA NATION — Thompson Brothers Lacrosse has partnered with Nike N7 to create an experience rooted in culture, traditions and lacrosse for American Indians across North America.
Thompson Brothers Lacrosse will host a N7 camp the week before the World Indoor Lacrosse Championships, September 11-13, on the Onondaga Nation, near Syracuse, New York. The camp is free to all Native youth in grades 3-12.
The Thompson brothers grew up on the Onondaga Nation and became champion lacrosse players. Lyle Thompson holds the record for most career points in NCAA Division 1 with 400 and the most career assists with 225. He now plays professionally for the Iroquois Nationals in international competition and the Florida Launch of Major League Lacrosse. Brothers, Jeremy Thompson played on the lacrosse team at Syracuse University and Miles Thompson played lacrosse at Albany
“This is a huge opportunity for our native youth to learn our game, our culture and our traditions. Lacrosse is more than a Haudenosaunee Game, this is a Native American game given to us by our Creator,” stated Lyle Thompson to Native News Online.
“It has been our mission to grow this game because all it has taught our family. Lacrosse is the medicine game, this medicine can begin to heal all people who are exposed to it,” he continued. It is truly our honor to teach the Native youth about Lacrosse, here on the Onondaga Nation, our home.”
