Wings Surprise Local Players at Harlem Lacrosse Philadelphia Youth Clinic

Yesterday, Philadelphia Wings players Blaze Riorden, Isaiah Davis-Allen, and Anthony Joaquim surprised young, aspiring lacrosse players at a special skills clinic held by Harlem Lacrosse – Philadelphia. With dozens of students in attendance between the ages of 11 and 13-years-old, the clinic provided an opportunity for young athletes to not only work on their lacrosse skills, but gain valuable lessons both on and off the field. Riorden, Davis-Allen, and Joaquim assisted in running drills, spoke to the group about what it takes to be a professional lacrosse player, and surprised students with tickets to the upcoming Wings game this weekend at Wells Fargo Center.

”We can’t thank Blaze, Isaiah, and Anthony enough for taking the time to visit our clinic today,” said Emily Davidson, Executive Director Harlem Lacrosse – Philadelphia. ”It meant the world to the students that they took the time to work with them one-on-one and share advice and experience from their successful lacrosse careers. We can’t wait to cheer them on this weekend at the Wings game.”

Harlem Lacrosse’s mission is to provide opportunities, relationships, and experiences that activate the skills and traits to put youth on a path to success as students, athletes, and citizens. A school-based non-profit organization, Harlem Lacrosse strives to change the life trajectories of youth through daily wrap-around academic support, mentoring, leadership training, college readiness career exploration, admissions counseling and lacrosse instruction. Harlem Lacrosse Program Directors maintain a daily presence in the schools and in the lives of the students they serve in order to build students’ confidence and activate the skill sets to help them reach their full personal potential.

“It was amazing for us to be able to take part in this clinic today,” said Isaiah Davis-Allen, Wings Defenseman. “We had the chance to work with some phenomenal kids and see the difference that Harlem Lacrosse – Philadelphia is making in their everyday lives. It is an amazing program that we are happy to support.”

 

Harlem Lacrosse – Philadelphia students also received individual tickets for each family to attend this Saturday’s Fan Appreciation Night at the Wings game at Wells Fargo Center. On Fan Appreciation Night, Wings fans can expect fun surprises and special giveaways throughout the game such as Wings gear, tickets to upcoming Wells Fargo Center events, and much more.

 

The Wings hope to strengthen their 5-3 record Saturday night as they face off against the Toronto Rock at 8 p.m. EST. Watch the game live on NBC Sports Philadelphia. Wings fans can purchase tickets for Fan Appreciation Night here.
