The Utah Lacrosse Association is committed to fostering and promoting the sport of lacrosse, as played by both men and women in the state of Utah. We will develop programs for all age groups, teaching lacrosse skills and encouraging excellence in athletic achievement while holding the highest standards of sportsmanship. We will solicit public and corporate awareness and financial support for our programs to facilitate the availability of the program to all who care to participate.

Positive Coaching Alliance Mission Statement
Positive Coaching Alliance (PCA) is a nonprofit organization founded at Stanford University with the mission to transform youth sports so sports can transform youth. PCA was created to transform the culture of youth sports to give all young athletes the opportunity for a positive, character-building experience.
We have three national goals:
Replace the "win-at-all-cost" model of coaching with the Double-Goal Coach®, who wants to win but has a second, more important, goal of using sports to teach life lessons;
Teach youth sports organization leaders how to create an organizational culture in which Honoring the Game is the norm; and
Spark and fuel a "social epidemic" of Positive Coaching that will sweep this country.
There are many people in this nation who want to change the culture of youth sports, but they do not feel equipped to do so. Positive Coaching Alliance has developed practical tools to change the culture of youth sports and is making them available to coaches, parents, league organizers and others who will fire this movement.
