Lacrosse Grows in Popularity in Snellville, GA

Lacrosse is the fastest growing sport in Georgia, according to Coach Dusty DeStefano, owner of MIH Performance Training in Snellville.

“Lacrosse is basically throwing and catching a ball with a stick while you're moving,” DeStefano explained. He and his staff currently train members of the Brookwood High School Lacrosse team during the off-season. His company launched in August of 2010, and is helping athletes reach peak performance.

“A lot of times high school coaches aren't allowed to interact with the athletes when they're not in season,” DeStefano, or Coach "D" continued. “That's where our services come in handy.”
