Philly Girls in Motion’s Instructional Lacrosse Leagues are supported by the Women’s Sports Foundation and utilize the GoGirlGo! Curriculum.  Topics such as healthy habits, positive body image, confidence and more will be covered in a workshop after league play.  Girls will be encouraged to discuss and journal about these topics each week.
