PHILADELPHIA, PA – On Thursday, Philadelphia Wings players, dancers, and mascot Wingston hosted a learn-to-play lacrosse clinic in West Philadelphia. The goal was to teach over 80 youth players from the Kingsessing Roadrunners Lacrosse Club the fundamentals of lacrosse and help develop their skills.
The event was held at Independence Charter School West.
In conjunction with Lacrosse Week in Philadelphia and to continue their mission of growing the sport of lacrosse in the area, the Wings and Under Armour donated a variety of lacrosse equipment to the Roadrunners Lacrosse Club.
