At Harlem Lacrosse, we use the power of sports to inspire young people to overcome obstacles and fulfill their full potential. The “secret” to the success of Harlem Lacrosse has never been a secret: It is about relationships. The foundation of Harlem Lacrosse is our model of placing a full-time staff person inside a school in a low-income neighborhood and then recruiting the students who need us the most. During the current crisis, our dedicated Program Directors are still providing virtual support, programming and training every day, year-round.
We all miss the sports we love! But there are still ways to be together, compete and help make a difference. This year we are launching a challenge to the lacrosse community and beyond - supporting our students during our 1st Annual Harlem Lacrosse Classic! If you are ready to face off with us to make a difference, it's time to accept our Game Ready Challenge! Use the links above to register and create your own HLC fundraising team, or join an existing team.
Once you have joined the Harlem Lacrosse Classic, it’s time to compete and get GAME READY!
Post a photo on social media from one of your favorite GAME READY moments--whether that was competing in a big game, giving a speech, serving your community, or any memory that shows how you get ready to do what you love. Feel free to dig up one of your favorite throwback memories and remember, the teams that raise the most support and enlist the most donors will be our HLC Champions. So, tag and nominate your friends, family, teammates and co-workers to accept your Harlem Lacrosse GAME READY challenge, and don't forget to share the link to join the Harlem Lacrosse Classic on your posts.
Thanks for being part of the Harlem Lacrosse team! With your help, we’re preparing young people to achieve at the highest levels. We’re so proud of the work we accomplish together and cannot wait to see you GAME READY!
