The Princeton Varsity Club held its fall Weapons of Mass Construction (“WOMC”) service event in conjuncture with Community & Staff Day on Saturday September 17th. The WOMC Youth Sport Clinic was held on Weaver Track in advance of Princeton Football’s home opener, which yielded a thrilling 35-31 victory over the Lafayette Leopards.
Over 170 Princeton student-athletes, representing a variety of varsity sports, came out to work with the children and teach them the general skills and techniques associated with their respective sports. The student-athletes staffed approximately 15 sport stations, including Basketball, Field Hockey, Lacrosse, Track & Field and Volleyball, to name a few.

This year’s event marked the third consecutive year the Princeton Varsity Club has partnered with the Office of Community & Regional Affairs to sponsor the Youth Sports Clinic, which originated back in 2006. The event also served as the eleventh edition of the PVC’s Weapons of Mass Construction community service series, which has ranged from youth clinics to community garden clean-up efforts to Hurricane Sandy shore restoration.
In addition to the WOMC Youth Sports Clinic, Saturday’s Community & Staff Day festivities included a family funfest in the stadium concourse, outreach tables staffed by local community vendors and a post-game aerial firework show.
The PVC would like to extend its thanks to all the student-athletes, community partners and Tiger fans that came out and contributed to making this year’s Fall Weapons of Mass Construction event a success.
