OVERVIEW OF THE UPSTATE LACROSSE ASSOCIATION (ULA)
The Upstate Lacrosse Association’s (ULA) primary focus is on the instructional and developmental aspects of the game of lacrosse. The ULA serves Central New York boys and girls from the third grade through the eleventh grade. There is also a K-2 division in the ULA however, this program operates independently from the larger association.
The goal of the ULA is to be a recreational youth lacrosse program designed to help players at all levels further develop their lacrosse skills and abilities. The ULA also focuses on the importance of learning other life skills such as: responsibility, sportsmanship, and being a part of a team. This approach is most clearly exemplified by the ULA’s commitment to adjust the rules of the game to best meet the players skill development and further develop their understanding of the great game of lacrosse.
