Our Association endeavours to be the premier lacrosse association in Alberta through the encouragement and development of players; through the enhancement of technical training and support programs for coaching staff and game officials; through the collaboration and cooperation with other lacrosse clubs, associations, corporate sponsors and the communities. We endeavour to provide both continuity and a satisfying environment to facilitate our sport.

As a club we will be committed to continuous improvement of our performance, we will be devoted to further development of our organization and we will continue to actively promote Canada’s National Summer Sport.
