Greenwich Youth Lacrosse is dedicating the 2019 season to our dear friend Ed McGuinn who passed away in October. Ed was a giant in the lacrosse world on so many levels. He was a respected coach and was a long-time referee at the youth, high school, and collegiate levels.
Ed was a founding board member of GYL and helped launch the program that serves as a role model for many other towns. He was instrumental helping our close friends at CityLax (NYC Docs) take their program to the next level.
Every player across GYL’s house league and travel program will be receiving a memorial decal from their coach to place on their stickor uniform (girls) and helmet (boys). On Sunday May 12th GYL will host 9 boys and girls travel teams from NYC Docs. We always look forward to our friendly annual games but this year will be extra special as we remember Ed. He made a difference in the growth of lacrosse and the growth of young people in our programs.
Ed honored the game every time he stepped on the field. Now we are honoring Ed and his amazing legacy. Rest in peace – we miss you.
