This year Harlem Lacrosse is launching a challenge to the lacrosse community and beyond - supporting their students during their 1st Annual Harlem Lacrosse Classic!
Harlem Lacrosse uses the power of sports to inspire young people to overcome obstacles and fulfill their full potential. They provide school-based, full-day, year-round support for students by placing a full-time Program Director at their school sites and maintaining a constant presence in the lives of the students they serve. They are tutors, mentors, and coaches who provide individualized attention that meets students where they are and helps them reach their goals on the field, in the classroom and in their communities.
The “secret” to the success of Harlem Lacrosse has never been a secret: It is about relationships. As long-time partners of Harlem Lacrosse, the William & Mary Lacrossecommunity is teaming up to compete in the Harlem Lacrosse Classic and we hope you will join us in making an impact!
William & Mary Lacrosse strives to support the expansion of lacrosse to everyone, especially those in need during these difficult times. We want to share the game that has changed our lives and opened so many doors for each of us with the young men and women that Harlem Lacrosse supports. Harlem Lacrosse teaches sportsmanship, teamwork, and the fact that if you work hard, you can accomplish anything.
Though we are all missing the sports we love, the HL Classic will be a fun way to connect, compete and make a difference for the youth of Harlem Lacrosse when they need us most. We are excited to accept Harlem Lacrosse's #GAMEREADY Challenge and hope you consider joining Tribe Lacrosse by making a donation to help achieve its mission: "Inspiring children to dream about tomorrow while working hard on the field and in the classroom today."
Once you have joined our team, it’s time to get #GAMEREADY!
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 at a professional conference, serving your community, or any memory that shows how you get ready to do what you love. Remember, the teams that raise the most support and enlist the most donors will be our HLC Champions.
So, nominate your friends, family, teammates and co-workers to accept your Harlem Lacrosse #GAMEREADY challenge, and make sure to share the link to join the Harlem Lacrosse Classic on your posts.
