The program will encourage WA children to get involved in modcrosse, a junior version of lacrosse with free skills sessions starting in term one of the school year.
Murphy will share his love for the sport while teaching primary and high school students and sharing an anti-smoking message.
The New York State college lacrosse player said he was glad to be part of the program.
“It’s a great program, the kids love modcrosse, love learning a different sport,” he said.
“Aussies are natural sports people and I was glad to be part of such an important message.”
Thousands of children have been part of the Smarter than Smoking modcrosse program across the metropolitan area at schools that chose to take on the free sessions.
There are six lacrosse clubs in Perth where children can take the next step and join a local team.
