The PITCH to offer lacrosse upon opening

By Staff | Feb 11, 2014

Warren — The PITCH (PenBay Indoor Turf & Community Hub), in addition to soccer and other indoor sports, also will offer a lacrosse program when it opens in Warren in late spring.

While a dedicated group of organizers already have brought lacrosse to the Midcoast at both the youth and high school levels, the goal is for the pitch to be “an additional resource and to assist with the growth of the sport regionally by offering top-notch instructional programs and indoor tournament play opportunities for all levels” for both boys and girls players.

The lacrosse program director is Thor Emory, who grew up in Maine but attended Tabor Academy in Marion, Mass, where he was a team captain and defensemen on a nationally-ranked lacrosse team. He later played at the University of New Hampshire.

The PITCH on Route 90, which broke ground last summer, is slated to open in May.
