Just outside of Managua, LtN first partnered with the public school Colegio Chiquilistagua in June, 2011. Located in a somewhat rural neighborhood, the school has over 1,000 students from Pre-K to 11th grade.
LtN’s lacrosse program has allowed the school to have their first ever PE program. Through the support of Manna Project International, another non profit organization serving Chiquilistagua, LtN has been able to build deeper connections and be more productive from the start of our program.

Lacrosse PE Program
Students in grades 2-11 have class twice a week, each running for 45 minutes. Before joining with Lacrosse the Nations, Colegio Chiquilistagua did not offer any classes of structured physical education. Because of the school’s size, our two coaches are responsible for running classes for two separate groups, grades 2-6 and 7-11. The life skills curriculum has been incorporated in each lesson, from respecting your teammates to leadership.

We are extremely lucky to have two enthusiastic and energetic coaches joining our amazing staff in Nicaragua.
