NJ Home Field Advantage Donates Indoor Field Time to Harlem Lacrosse & Leadership Girls’ Lacrosse ProgramLacrosse Playground /
Ramsey, NJ, March 6, 2014 – When the snowy conditions in the New York area last week threatened to cancel the Harlem Lacrosse & Leadership (HLL) girls lacrosse programs clinic with players from the Immaculate Heart Academy (IHA), NJ Home Field Advantage in Ramesy, NJ, opened its doors and donated the hard to come by indoor turf time.
The HLL is a youth organization that uses lacrosse training and academic intervention to instill leadership skills and social responsibility in students in grades 6 through 8 at public schools in Harlem, NY. The IHA players worked with the HLL girls on their stick, throwing and ball handling skills while also sharing the life lessons lacrosse teaches. Epoch Lacrosse even donated two of their women’s carbon composite shafts for the winners of the skills competition.
