  • Believe Land: Lacrosse Captures Children's Imagination in Cleveland
    By mschneider - Monday Oct 30, 2017

    It’s just the start of a movement in Ohio City.

    “Making sure kids have a safe place to play is a huge priority for us in urban education,” Gill said. “We’re going to build this thing, we’re going to blow it open, it’s not going to have a lock on it, and we’re going to program the hell out of it. That’s what’s going to happen. That’s when it works.”

    It was a “perfect confluence” of events that brought the Lacrosse Communities Project to Ohio City, a neighborhood that borders the Cuyahoga River. Ohio City boasts 9,000 residents and is one of just three neighborhoods in Cleveland continuing to grow despite an overall drop in population in the city.

    Although the neighborhood has seen extensive renovations in recent years — particularly along 25th Street, where the historic West Side Market resides — there are still 2,000 people living in public housing within Ohio City. That’s 22 percent of the neighborhood’s population situated primarily in two housing developments — the Riverview Tower, which borders the Cuyahoga, and the Lakeview Estates, separated from the rest of the neighborhood by the Cleveland Memorial Shoreway.

    The poverty rate in Ohio City dwarfs the national rate of 12.7 percent. Gill said he’s made an effort to get children involved in Urban Community School activities.

    “Our kids aren’t robots,” Gill said. “Athletics at a school likes ours can be huge. Physical activity, our kids tend not to go outside once they get home because of the neighborhoods that they live in.”

    The new turf field at UCS, built on the patch of land that stood vacant for over 50 years, will make the sport accessible. The field will be open to the public and will host clinics and other lacrosse programming.

    US Lacrosse and Ohio City Inc. are funding a paid lacrosse manager position to deliver learning activities for kids, parents and coaches not only at UCS and Near West Recreation, but also at surrounding schools and rec centers.

    “The field is just one piece of this puzzle,” said Drew Roggenburk, current North Coast Ohio chapter president. “The real meat of this project is staffing and committing focused resources.”

    Local college players, like Heidelberg’s Chris Storrs and Max Rennillo, also will have a hand in giving back. Rennillo was raised in Shaker Heights on Cleveland’s East Side and Storrs grew up in the suburb of Euclid. Rennillo picked up the game at St. Ignatius and Storrs did the same at Benedictine. Now they play on the new Heidelberg team in Tiffin, Ohio. However, they wish the game had been offered to them earlier.

    “If I would have started at a younger age, like 5 or 6, how much would my game have grown?” Storrs said. “I could have been 10 times better.”

    The hope for the Lacrosse Communities Project in Ohio City is to create a sustainable model for youth lacrosse that spans multiple generations. With the help of Near West Rec and other local organizations, US Lacrosse will look to develop feeder schools, inter-team rivalries and coach training to advance the sport.

    “Those children of diverse and mixed backgrounds are starting to feel like they’re worth it, too — that they are capable and able to have their hands in something that seems so farfetched,” Garcia said. “It brings hope and opportunity for the families and the children.”

    WHO

    The Lacrosse Communities Project is a joint venture of US Lacrosse, local chapters, schools and community organizers.

    WHAT

    Complete infusion of US Lacrosse resources and programs — up to and including the construction of a field where green space is at a premium — in the most racially, ethnically and economically diverse neighborhoods in cities around the country.

    WHEN

    Pilot sites in Albany and Cleveland (Ohio City) launched in June and September, respectively, with Brooklyn (Gravesend) scheduled for 2018.

    WHERE

    Albany, Cleveland (Ohio City) and Brooklyn (Gravesend)

    WHY

    US Lacrosse identified these hubs because they feature US Lacrosse chapters, community-based organizations that are devoted to reinvestment in their neighborhoods, an accessible network of public schools and medical partners to deploy wellness programming — all of which are necessary to create self-sustaining sport ecosystems. “This is a lacrosse infrastructure-building project,” said Joshua Christian, managing director of sport development. “It’s all about the partnerships that really don’t leave.”

    HOW

    1. Make strong connections with local stakeholders, community organizations and every school, after-school and recreation program in the neighborhood.

    2. Identify a hub — a park or school — that’s accessible to all.

    3. Provide focused resources and programs such as US Lacrosse First Stick equipment grants, the nationally recognized PE curriculum, and certified coaches and officials training.

    4. Build or improve an athletic field where boys and girls can play. (For Cleveland, US Lacrosse collaborated with Official Turf Provider, GreenFields, to install a small-sided field at Urban Community School.)

    5. Promote lifetime heart-healthy habits, integrating CPR and AED training.

  • Weekend booking: Margaret Wilkerson Sexton
    By John McMurtrie - Tuesday Sep 26, 2017

    Margaret Wilkerson Sexton is well familiar with Berkeley, having graduated from UC Berkeley School of Law. This week, the New Orleans native, who now lives in Oakland, will be back in Berkeley not as a student, but as a celebrated author. Sexton’s debut novel, “A Kind of Freedom” (published by Counterpoint Press of Berkeley), has been receiving high praise from critics and was recently long-listed for the National Book Award for Fiction. The story follows the travails, over three generations, of a New Orleans family that must confront, like millions of others in this country, pervasive racism in its quest to attain something like the American dream. Sexton will read from her novel at 7 p.m. Thursday, Sept. 28, at Books Inc.
