Troy Bonterre is known for a lot of things in the world of box lacrosse, the most notable among them was his role as a physical defender. That’s a euphemism for enforcer. But now that he’s retired from the National Lacrosse League, he’s finally getting the chance to do something he’s long been wanting to do, and that’s bringing a lacrosse camp to Owen Sound. “There hasn’t been any big lacrosse camp since I started playing junior here,” he told The Owen Sound Sun Times, adding that the camp will have instructors in himself, Billy Dee Smith, Mark Cochrane, Adam Jones, Jamie Rooney and Mat McLeod. “It’s the first one that I know of, especially with the pro guys coming in to help out. I’ve had a lot of people get excited about it but for some reason the word hasn’t got out like we thought it would.” The camp for kids aged 7 to 14 is set for July 8-12, and interested players need to register by June 24 by emailing email@example.com, or by visiting the Pro Performance lacrosse camp Facebook page.Chavez is an avid lacrosse player in Rochester and a journalist for the Democrat and Chronicle as well as a longtime Inside Lacrosse contributor.
