Harlem Lacrosse & Leadership Corporation Opens New Doors

Lacrosse in Harlem? Yes. It’s a reality through The Harlem Lacrosse & Leadership Corporation at The Frederick Douglass Academy. The kids have persevered beyond the noticeable tangibles for quite awhile in Harlem; fields, equipment, sticks, etc… Yet, they’ve continued to push. Right now, the goal isn’t to mold the youth of Harlem into star lacrosse players, but they are molding disciplined children who are pursuing opportunities within and beyond Harlem.

HLL states:

Harlem Lacrosse & Leadership Corporation (HLL) is a youth organization that builds leadership skills and social responsibility through lacrosse. We provide a safe and structured setting for our players, as we guide them both on and off the field through coaching, mentoring, and academic intervention. Broadening players’ experiences and skill sets prepare them to become effective leaders in the Harlem community.

Lacrosse Playground

In 2009, Adam O’Neill, Harry Alford and Thomas Alford launched Lacrosse Playground as the preeminent site for lacrosse gearheads. For years Lacrosse Playground provided lacrosse fans with tutorials and tips on how to string a lacrosse head, up-close looks at the gear the top players used and sneak peeks at equipment and uniforms before they were released. More than 10 years and millions of visits later, Lacrosse Playground has relaunched with a focus on storytelling. Our mission is to provide comprehensive coverage of the latest lacrosse news, share insights into the sports betting and fantasy lacrosse world and showcase the lifestyles and personalities of the sport of lacrosse through articles, videos and podcasts.
