Foresters start off the semester with a number of events!

The Lake Forest College Football team is starting the semester off strong. In addition to working out in the new 10,000 sq. ft. Wes Dixon Weight Room in the renovated Sports and Recreation Center, the Foresters have begun their involvement in the local community.

On Thursday afternoon, the "Offense" went to Forrestal Elementary School in North Chicago. In an effort to continue supporting the efforts of the North Chicago Community Partners and their after-school program. The "Defense" will be heading up to follow in their footsteps in two weeks.

The children had the opportunity to "workout" with the football players, as well as participate in a number of relay races. In addition, there were some question and answer opportunites for the student.

On Sunday, January 23rd, the Forester's will be participating in a joint effort with the Lake Forest Athletic Department, S.N.A.P., and the Great Lakes Adaptive Sports Association to help bring "Sled Hockey" to our campus. Through the efforts of a number of individuals including former Men's Hockey Coach Tony Fritz, GLASA and their athlete will put on display a complete game of Sled Hockey on Sunday at 6pm. Deatails for the event can be found here:
