La Jolla Lacrosse Code of Conduct for Players, Coaches and Parents

 
Lacrosse should be fun for players, coaches and parents.
The La Jolla Lacrosse Club believes that players should develop skills and a love for the game of lacrosse while also learning the value of sportsmanship.
 
Our goal is to enable the athletes to play lacrosse under positive leadership, to play and love the game and to nurture within them a sense of teamwork and respect for others.
 
La Jolla Youth Lacrosse requires players, coaches and parents to abide by the following rules.
 
Players-
1.      “HONOR THE GAME” of lacrosse. Display good sportsmanship at all times on and off the field. Set a positive example.
2.      Respect your teammates, coaches, referees and opponents at all times, even when others do not.
