Harlem/Metro Lacrosse’s mission is to empower the children who are most at risk for academic decline and dropout to rise above their challenges and reach their full potential. Harlem Lacrosse inspires children to dream about tomorrow while working hard on the field and in the classroom today.
As a non profit, MetroLacrosse relies on volunteer coaches to help run all of its youth teams. Coaches must have lacrosse experience and a passion for teaching the game, although coaching experience is not required. MetroLacrosse runs its programming in two main locations - Dorchester and Chelsea, and the facilities change depending on the season due to weather and access to lighting.
