Our Mission Statement
To teach and promote the great game of lacrosse in a fun, safe and sportsmanlike environment.
Our Commitment to You
We are dedicated to the skill development of each individual player. We will focus on building strategic thinking, speed, field position, teamwork and finesse rather than physical intimidation or a winning game record.
Let the coaches coach, the officials officiate and above anything else… let the children play and have fun!
Code of Conduct
During registration players/parents agreed to the code of conduct. Violations may result in immediate evacuation from the field, game suspension or expulsion from the club.
• Respect your teammates, coaches, referees & opponents at all times. • Be gracious in defeat & modest in victory. • Support fellow teammates, encourage them & lead by positive example. • Don’t be afraid to make mistakes; they are part of the learning process. • Effort needs to be 100% for practices & games. • Equipment must be properly maintained & worn at all practices & games. • Learn as much as you can from your coaches. • Fun is part of the experience. Effort & growing are just as important as having fun! • Attendence is expected at both practice & games. Proper notice is required for any absence.
• Learn & know the rules of the game of youth lacrosse. • Respect the game of lacrosse, officials & coaches. • Referees are only to be approached & spoken to by head coach. • Do not coach your child. Let players play & coaches coach. • Do not criticize other players. • Follow "24 Hour Rule"; if you have a complaint speak with your child’s coach on the following day. • Serious problems should be brought to the attention of the Board of Directors so proper solutions can be developed. • Fun, learning & 100% effort will be emphasized; not winning the game.
