The Georgia Swarm of the National Lacrosse League will be having a lacrosse clinic on June 27. The camp will be taking place at Kinnett Stadium in Columbus, Georgia from 5 p.m. to 7:30 p.m.

Kinnett Stadium is located at 7610 Schomburg Road in Columbus. It normally hosts high school football, high school and middle school soccer and track and field. 

The intention of the Swarm is to give Georgia kids an opportunity to play lacrosse for the first time. The clinic is open to all children from kindergarten to grade 12. 

Two Swarm players will be hosting the clinic. They are defenseman Bryan Cole and assistant captain Shayne Jackson. 

Cole played 18 regular season games for the Swarm in 2018. He had six goals and eight assists for 14 points, 25 penalty minutes and two shorthanded goals. Cole also collected 95 loose balls, committed 14 turnovers, 24 shots and 17 shots on goal. Originally selected in the first round, fourth overall by the Swarm in the 2016 National Lacrosse League Draft, Cole has played the last two seasons for the Swarm. 

Jackson, like Cole, played 18 regular season games for the Swarm in 2018. He had 33 goals and 52 assists for 85 points. Jackson also had nine penalty minutes, 12 power play points, three shorthanded points, two game-winning goals, collected 75 loose balls, committed 35 turnovers, 173 shots and 128 shots on goal. He was drafted in the first round, fourth overall by the Minnesota Swarm in the 2012 National Lacrosse League Entry Draft.
