Madison Youth Lacrosse's primary purpose is to teach and promote the game of lacrosse in a fun, safe and sportsmanlike environment. As a youth league, MYL is dedicated to the skill development of lacrosse players and teaches a game of speed, position and finesse rather than physical intimidation or promoting a team's winning record. Along with learning lacrosse, MYL strives to instill the values of sportsmanship, respect, teamwork, fair play and a love of the sport of lacrosse for teammates, coaches and officials; in essence we "Honor the Game". MYL believes that sportsmanship is a way of life and will conduct all activities in a manner that will set an example of good sportsmanship and friendly competition for our young players. Madison Youth Lacrosse is an active member of the Positive Coaching Alliance, a nationwide organization dedicated to promoting a positive culture in youth sports so that every young athlete can have a positive, character-building experience.
