Kip is one of the founders of The South African Lacrosse Project. Although he doesn’t have the impressive lacrosse resume of Sue, Katie & Tom, Kip played for Kelly Post when he was younger and really enjoyed the game. Taking up competitive fencing caused lacrosse to take a back burner, but he remembers the basics and has helped teach SALP camp for the past three years. He is very happy to have all the coaches' expertise to take our friends in South Africa to the next level! Kip is a Scholars student at the University of Maryland and is looking forward to another year of aerospace engineering (yes actually, it is rocket science).
Harrison is Kip’s younger brother, and is co-founder of The South African Lacrosse Project. Harrison started playing lacrosse when he was four years old, and aside for playing in high school, he has played for both Kelly Post and Towsontowne lacrosse leagues. His favorite position is middie, but he plays wherever he is needed. Harrison is a freshman an Towson University, where he studies phototgraphy and film. Harrison has gone to enough lacrosse camps and practices that he has had no problem spearheading the teaching efforts in South Africa!
