WOW! I cannot believe it is practically May already! I feel as if the DC Classic happened last week, not last month! The DC Classic is a fundraising event for WINNERS Lacrosse where all DC high schools play on one day to celebrate and contribute to the growth of the game! Below you can watch a video of how impactful the event and lacrosse has been in the DC area.
We are three weeks out from completing our spring season. The spring season featured two leagues - one middle school and one elementary school. Last season we had approximately 300 participants in our spring leagues and this season we have grown to over 500! The season has not been without its challenges, including field space, coaches, gear, goals, and of course many lost mouthguards. However, through our hard work and perseverance we have nearly completed our most successful season in WINNERS history!
Although the season is almost over, we still have so much to do and look forward to! Currently, we are forming all-star teams to take to Baltimore to play against other opponents, planning more camps, and our annual tailgate fundraiser. While we can celebrate our accomplishments, we will continue to plan for our future and stop to look back on the season so we can improve moving forward. For those in the urban lacrosse arena, we know that it never stops. There are always more kids to reach, more programs to run, more gear and people needed to make it all happen!
