Eyekonz Field Hockey and Lacrosse
Our Mission is to Empower, Educate and Motivate the next generation of field hockey and lacrosse Olympians. It is our belief, that through the structure and development of playing field hockey, we will provide our girls & boys with the skill set and development they need in areas such as sportsmanship, healthy lifestyle, team work, self- esteem, history of their culture, healthy body image and academic achievement. This will translate into a wholesome productive lifestyle, on and off the field.
Eyekonz Field Hockey and Lacrosse was established to serve the needs of young African-American Latina and Latino girls & boys ages 5-18 in the Greater Philadelphia area and beyond. Eyekonz utilizes field hockey and lacrosse as a tool to teach life lessons like hard work, sportsmanship, self discipline, healthy self esteem and coping skills. Players from K to 12th grade are able to develop as athletes and individuals, while competing in local and regional tournaments. Eyekonz is a year round lacrosse and field hockey sports league directed by Jazmine A Smith. Eyekonz Sports is for committed players who show a passion and commitment to the game. Our girls continue to gain knowledge of how to learn the basic technical skills associated with field hockey and lacrosse, as well as advanced skills, in an effort to prepare them to compete against other teams in Philadelphia and other teams in the United States.
Throughout this league, they will also have curriculum that are designed to prepare them for life, such as African/Kemetic /African-American history, Hispanic History ,etiquette, mediation/yoga, self love, daily affirmations, finical literacy, visualization exercises, healthy eating and lifestyle choices. Eyekonz Sports League, the creator of Eyekonz Field Hockey and Lacrosse, has also partnered with Drexel University’s Engineering Department to create opportunities for the girls & boys to gain access into this growing field. Our girls & boys must also complete 8 hours of community service within their neighborhood, as well as have their school report cards reviewed to ensure academic standards are being met. We offer this unique approach to our league to create a platform for success within our community, while providing the tools necessary to foster the next generation to achieve whatever they put their minds to.
