GIRLS UNITED MISSION STATEMENT
Athletic participation helps our members grow, learn, and enjoy themselves while they
use and develop their personal, physical, and intellectual skills.
We value the lessons that have long been taught by athletic participation:
the pursuit of excellence through personal development and teamwork,
ethical and responsible behavior on the field and off,
adherence to the spirit of rules as well as to their letter,
leadership and strength of character, and sportsmanship – respect for one’s opponents,
acceptance of victory with humility, and acknowledgement of defeat with grace.
In teaching these lessons to our members, Girls United Lacrosse instills habits
which will lead our members to better and healthier lives. While winning is not an end in itself,
we believe that the efforts by our athletes to be their best will lead them to succeed throughout
With the Girls United we believe truly effective coaching occurs in the context of
an ongoing relationship between the coach and participant, founded upon experience,
mutual honesty, trust and positive regard. The Girls United guarantee that you will
be partnered with a coach who understands young girls issues, understands their
role as a mentor, and shares our commitment to personal development.
