Building off of a relationship that was started last summer, this past weekend the Ultimate CC 2023 team welcomed players from the Philadelphia chapter of Harlem Lacrosse to join them for practice. Both teams were excited to bond over the game they love and make some new friends in the process.
On the field, the two clubs pushed each others' limits and encouraged excellent performance. Drills including continuous 3 v 2, to setting picks, and shooting drills; players were simultaneously competitive and united as a group. We finished the practice with a competitive scrimmage filled with excitement and laughter.
Off the field the fun continued. The Ultimate players and Harlem Lacrosse players shared stories, experiences, and fun facts about themselves to add to the camaraderie and energetic atmosphere of the day. After practice the girls enjoyed a tailgate together with music and dancing as well as Halloween-themed fun including a toilet paper Mummy contest.
All players from both teams were excellent examples of how to be leaders, teachers, coaches, teammates and good friends.
Thanks again to Harlem Lacrosse for joining us!
