MISSION AND GOAL
To promote youth sports in the community while encouraging teamwork, positive self-esteem, sportsmanship, respect for others, personal responsibility and perseverance. We believe that the attainment of athletic skill and the winning of games are secondary to the development of character and good citizenship.
Our goal is to prepare our youth athletes to be competitive lacrosse players and at the same time keep our mission in focus. Balancing the need to be fair but still competitive is an important aspect of achieving our mission and goals. It is not always possible to be fair while remaining competitive.
In order to further our mission, we encourage each athlete to be the best lacrosse player that he/she can be. We strive to put every child in the best possible situation to succeed as a lacrosse player so they can gain confidence and enjoy playing the game.
