Mission Statement: The University Place Lacrosse Club is a non-profit organization that promotes the sport of lacrosse to youth residing in or attending a school located in the University Place School District boundary. This is accomplished through properly assessed skills and abilities and grade-level placement, teaching proper fundamentals, evolving players through game skills, qualities required for good sportsmanship, respecting all participants with focus on teamwork, and collaborate with the Curtis High School lacrosse programs.
Our goal is to promote skill development, sportsmanship, team cohesion, personal growth, active community involvement, and love of the sport.
- To create and maintain grade-level teams focused on teaching fundamental skills and provide challenging competition appropriate for the players' skill and athletic level, while maintaining focus on team concept and individual leadership development.
- To create a stimulating and engaging learning environment where individuals of differing levels of skill and physical development can appropriately and safely learn to enjoy the game of lacrosse.
- To provide equal attention and support to all individuals.
- To engage parents/guardians, community members, and experienced players to instruct, coach, referee, and actively participate in various UPLC activities to establish a strong UPLC network.
