(November 6th, 2012) – We are happy to announce that One World Lacrosse (OWL) will be partnering with Philippines Lacrosse, and assisting them in their mission to unify all Filipino lacrosse players around the world. The two organizations share a unifying vision. A vision which asserts that the growth and support of youth lacrosse is paramount to the overall success of the sport.
When Philippines Lacrosse travels to play the Costa Rican National Team December 7th-9th, they will hold a youth clinic, followed by the big game on Sunday. They are also taking a group of United States-based players to the Philippines to Grow The Game in 2013. The team is holding two clinics in February, and OWL will assist them with sticks, equipment, and a guided curriculum as they build the Filipino lacrosse movement.
One World Lacrosse is currently planning to bring a lacrosse and clean water project back to India in 2013. Past/present high school, college, and professional players are urged to check out www.oneworldlacrosse.org or email [email protected] for more information regarding volunteer opportunities.
There are big things on the horizon for OWL and Philippines Lacrosse. They will be playing under a united Filipino banner, as well as the banner of The OWL.
