Hello Friends! Welcome to my new project, the Lacrosse Frontier. I want to thank Jeff, Connor, and everyone else at LAS for doing the leg work to get this off the ground. I’ve been a fan of the LAS idea and operations since they first launched and I only hope that I can contribute a few lines to the great ongoing discussion about our sport.
My name is Kevin Flynn and I first encountered lacrosse at an impressionable age, strapping on the pads for the first time as a sophomore in high school. When I came out to Montana for college in 2002, I had no idea that the sport was going to change my life. Over the past dozen years I’ve had the opportunity to travel all over the country and work with some amazing people. Through my experiences and my studies, I do my best to get to a place of deep understanding and connection to the sport of lacrosse. I also do my best to help the sport continue to grow.
Out on the Lacrosse Frontier in Montana, you can find me involved in just about everything. I am one of the founders of our state’s USLacrosse Chapter, previously coached and played at The University of Montana, co-founded Missoula’s first youth lacrosse program, and I’ve hosted clinics and camps all over the state. I feel so fortunate to get the chance to share this game with hundreds of new players, despite all of the challenges and obstacles of life on the frontier. I look forward to sharing some of my stories, and the stories of the many amazing people out here growing the game.
The growth of lacrosse in my lifetime has just been incredible, but the question now is where are we going, and how are we going to get there. There are a lot of smart people involved in lacrosse and they have an unparalleled passion. My personal quest will be to try and connect my game to all the other games being played, above and below, in the past and in the future, and take in as much of the medicine as I can.
I look forward to keeping the lacrosse world in touch with the Frontier and thank you for reading!
