HEADstrong Philly Girls also offers their 12th Grade players an opportunity to continue to train and play throughout the fall and winter seasons so they are prepared for a successful High School spring season as a Senior. The HEADstrong Philly Seniors’ program includes 5-week fall ball league, 16 hours of fall team training, one fall tournament, 3-hour Fall College Coaches’ Clinic and 9-weeks of winter play in the YSC indoor high girls lacrosse league.

The program will operate in a year-round format integrating fall team training sessions, fall ball league, fall tournament play, winter skill development sessions & indoor league play, spring community service and summer team training and tournament play.
