As Nelson Mandela once said, "Sport has the power to change the world. It has the power to inspire. It has the power to unite people in a way that little else does. It speaks to youth in a language they understand."
Harlem Lacrosse’s mission is to provide opportunities, relationships, and experiences that activate the skills and traits to put youth on a path to success as students, athletes, and citizens.
Harlem Lacrosse is uniquely positioned to adapt their services and continue advancing the mission during a time of unprecedented need. They've been hard at work providing full-day remote learning support and delivering daily “after-school” programs -- check out some photos and updates here https://www.harlemlacrosse.org/covid19.
Denison University alumni have a strong connection to the boys and girls of Harlem Lacrosse. Former Big Red stars have worked with students both on and off the field as coaches, tutors, interns and even as Program Directors. These experiences and relationships mean the world to us. The sport of lacrosse has given us so much and we want the boys and girls of Harlem Lacrosse to continue to elevate the game and pursue their passions.
Though we are all missing the sports we love, the Harlem Lacrosse Classic will be a fun way to connect, compete and make a difference for the youth of Harlem Lacrosse when they need us most.
