Join City Lax parent and Health Activist, Cher Crichlow, for a short meet-up to discuss authentic health strategies.  Human bodies across the globe want the same thing – nutritious food to be absorbed in the blood to supply nutrients to power the whole body.  Human bodies are amazing and they always move toward health.  They don’t naturally want to be diseased, tired, dull, and sick.  They don’t know how to hide the truth.

  • What:  the REAL Value of Health meet-up
  • When:  Wednesday, May 18 and Thursday, May 19 at 5:30-6:00p.  The meet-up will cover the same information on both days.
  • Where:  Bench on 38th Street, outside at MLK park

Give VALUE to your health.  Learn what is possible.  One person with a renewed health practice has the potential to affect many others.

DaVaughn is a 4th grader at Cole Arts and Science and plays on the U9 team. He has been playing with City Lax for the past two seasons and has been a force between the pipes!

What are your future goals?

My goals have changed, I no longer want to be a football player, I want to be a professional lacrosse player and coach, to give back to community and help a kid out like my coaches have. Teach the game of lacrosse. If I don’t make it I want to be a police officer.

What other sports or activities are you involved in?

Football and Basketball

What is your favorite part about City Lax?

My favorite part of City Lax, is that my team is able to play kids all over the state and meeting new people. All the coaches push us to work hard and to do the best that we can do. I love to hear from other families that are not part of city lax what a great job I did in a game!

What life lessons have you learned from City Lax?

Never give up and keep working hard in whatever I do in life and to be a leader not a follower.

What has lacrosse taught you about yourself?

Lacrosse has taught me that I can do anything that I put my mind to. It has taught me how to be a leader and help others out when then need help. I am a team player because of lacrosse. It has given me experience that I would had never got in life.

Where do you want to go to college and what are you interested in studying?

Yes I want to go to college, I want to go to DU to play lacrosse and study law.

What’s something cool about you that your teammates don’t know?

I am great at math.

Do you have any hidden talents?

I am a great dancer.

What is your best memory from City Lax?

My best memory of City Lax is meeting Uganda players and being able to have practice with them and have a camp with them. It was a great experience to meet someone from another country and I still have contact with them.

Who is your favorite City Lax coach and why?

Coach Eric Law.  He has been my coach since I joined two years ago.  He is my favorite coach because he challenges me to throw the ball with my left hand. He has taught me how to not stop my feet and then throw the ball. He has challenged me to do things that I thought I couldn’t do, like being goalie.

Who’s your favorite role model and why?

All my coaches are my role model because they have taken up there time to teach me and give me support that I need.

How do you feel after making a great play in practice or a game?

I get super happy and I feel great. I love being goalie because it makes me stand out and be proud when I stop all the balls or at least try to! They say I am crazy for wanted to be goalie but I love it and I work hard at it! No balls getting through me.

Meet Cisco Gonzales!  Cisco is 13 and in the 8th grade at Denver School for International Studies.  He has been playing with City Lax for 5 years.  He continues to improve as a player, and is a great young man.  Cisco came to City Lax after first playing a year with the Boys and Girls Club. We are so happy that Cisco is a part of the City Lax family and hope you enjoy his spotlight!

How did you hear about City Lax?

I heard about it from Coach Ben while I was playing my first year of lacrosse at the Boys and Girls Club.

Have you had any other family members be a part of City Lax?

I have not had any family members be a part of City Lax. My sister however is about to start her first year.

What are your future goals?

My goals for the future are to graduate East High School and attend either Stanford or Johns Hopkins University. I would like to graduate from college and receive a degree in criminal justice and move on to the MLL. Since joining City Lax I have set a goal to take my lacrosse career to the next level.

What other sports or activities are you involved in?

Rugby, Basketball, Tennis, Golf

What is your favorite part about City Lax?

My favorite part about Denver City Lax is the relationships we form on and off the field. I consider City Lax as my second family. For example, I consider my teammates my brothers and my coaches my uncles.

What life lessons have you learned from City Lax?

I have learned many life lessons like to appreciate everything I have, to always fulfill your commitments at school and on the field, and to do everything you do to your best ability.

Do you want to go to college?

I either would like to attend Stanford or John’s Hopkins University and received a degree in criminal justice.

What is your best memory from City Lax?

I can’t decide on either the BCM trip or our last game of this season (2015). I like BCM because it made me appreciate everything I have and all the opportunities I get. I liked our last game because it made me realize where we came from and it was really nice when Coach Ben’s “allergies” were acting up but on a serious note it also gave me a chance to notice the relationships I have formed and how Denver City Lax is so much more than a lacrosse team.

How do you feel after making a great play?

It’s the best feeling ever because then you know that all the work, hours, blood, sweat and tears have paid off.
