INTRODUCTION TO THE US LACROSSE ATHLETE DEVELOPMENT MODEL

Southside Lacrosse adopts US Lacrosse Athlete Development Model

Southside Lacrosse League has adopted the latest US Lacrosse rules governing youth league competition. 

The new rules are based upon the Lacrosse Athlete Development Model (LADM). 

The Core Values of LADM include the following six elements:

  • Designed for Development
  • FUN and Kid-Centered
  • Small-Sided Competition and Free Play
  • Coach Training
  • Physical Literacy
  • Multi-Sport Participation

The intent of LADM is to both increase participation rates in lacrosse and to retain more players from First Exposure at an early age through their entire athletic career.
