Developing Better Athletes, Better People 

Hosted by the Colorado Chapter of US Lacrosse

With Joe Ehrmann and the Positive Coaching Alliance

 Join the Colorado Lacrosse Foundation on October 18 for a unique community event for players, coaches and parents. This experience will focus on how coaches and parents can help build the character of young athletes through teachable moments by identifying opportunities to teach self confidence, resiliency, teamwork, empathy, mental toughness, self control and respect for others through sports. Players will learn how to embrace these moments and make the most out of their time on the sports field.

This event will feature a powerful seminar from Joe Ehrmann, elite athlete, educator, motivator, coach and professional speaker for over 30 years. Joe Ehrmann develops leaders to be their best – personally, professionally and relationally – in business, on the field and in life. Click here to read more about the impact Joe has had on coaches and players throughout his career. 

A free PCA Clinic will be given before Joe Ehrmann's seminar! The clinic, Becoming a Triple Impact Competitor, trains student-athletes of middle school age and older to impact sport on three levels by working to improve themselves, teammates and their sport as a whole.

Mark your calendar for October 17-18th

The Convention is scheduled for October 17-18, 2015 at the Hyatt Regency DTC.  The convention weekend will include three key events.


Rocky Mountain Regional Lacrosse Convention


Saturday October 17   The main focus of this day is extensive and valuable coaching education for our boys and girls youth and high school coaches. We are currently forming committees to identify relevant knowledge areas and address speaker topics specific to these areas. We will be targeting speakers from the area as well as around the country to give our coaches the best opportunity to advance their coaching knowledge.


Sunday October 18   Coaching education continues in the morning with live demonstrations and more speakers. Also during this time, we will be hosting the Fan Fest area, where we will invite players and fans to join in the convention. Fan Fest participants will have the opportunity to visit the vendor village and also attend the live demonstration sessions. We are also working on an abbreviated "Parent Track",including rules, levels of play, PCA, recruiting, etc. The Convention concludes with a coaching clinic by Joe Ehrmann (see description below) open to coaches, players, and parents.


Colorado Lacrosse Hall of Fame Celebration


Saturday, October 17   Join CLF and the lacrosse community to celebrate the state of lacrosse in Colorado and honor those who have made it happen. The celebration includes a seated dinner, keynote speaker Joe Ehrmann, and induction of the 2015 class. The 2015 CLF Awards will also be presented during the dinner. Instructions for nominations will be sent out in the next few weeks.


Coaching Clinic by Joe Ehrmann


Sunday October 18     Joe is an inspirational dynamic speaker that promotes growth, teamwork, effectiveness, and individual responsibility. This clinic is included in the convention fee for coaches. There will be an opportunity for clubs to purchase group seats and individuals to purchase seats. To learn more about Joe, please visit his website: www.coachforamerica.com.


We'd like to ask you, while planning your fall activities, that you please keep this event in mind. If you are able to plan around this weekend to allow coaches to attend the convention and parents and players to attend the FanFest and Joe Ehrmann event, we would be grateful so that we can create a dynamic weekend for Colorado Lacrosse.


One last conversation we would like to begin is how can we use the convention to help you and your coaches?  All of our leagues require some sort of coaching training before the season starts. We would like to help you accomplish that through the convention if possible. For example, if we can tailor some of the speaking topics to count towards their certification for your league, we would like to do so. This is an event that CLF is funding, so it could be an opportunity to save your league some funds if we can make this work for you.  


We are working with USL to incorporate Level 1 CEP training into the convention and also to allow Joe Ehrmann to qualify for the PCA component of the Level 1 certification. We will keep you posted as this develops.


If you have any questions about the Convention, Hall of Fame or Joe Ehrmann please don't hesitate to contact me.  As always, we appreciate your support of the Colorado Lacrosse Foundation.  


Looking forward to a great event this fall!

Rule Change Regarding Lacrosse Balls

As you may know, as of January 1, 2014, ALL lacrosse balls used for play MUST have the NOCSAE seal on the ball (it must say “meets NOCSAE standard” on the ball).
NOCSAE is the National Operating Committee on Standards for Athletic Equipment, who commissions research in sports medicine & science and establishes standards for athletic equipment.  To read more about the rule change, please read the article, What’s in a Ball? which originally appeared in Lacrosse Magazine in January 2013.
This rule was inserted into the rulebook last year but we urge you to send a reminder to the local league leaders, program administrators and coaches reminding them of this rule before they order balls for the 2014 season.
This is a rule change for the boys and girls game.  Manufacturers are making these balls but they have not hit the shelves of retailers to date.  It will be beneficial to order now from your local retailer to be placed on a list and not wait for the spring, when quantities could become limited.  Officials will be reminded that only balls with the NOCSAE seal will be allowed for play and we don’t want games canceled or postponed because of this change.

US Lacrosse Gold Stick Pilot Program
The CGLA has been identified as a potential US Lacrosse Gold Stick League based on your track record of providing a quality and safe playing experience for young players. The US Lacrosse Gold Stick Program is a new initiative that provides a model set of standards for youth leagues to follow to create the best environment for children to participate in lacrosse. We feel strongly that the leagues that follow these standards will best serve their local lacrosse communities, and we’ll do our part in using US Lacrosse communications vehicles, such as Lacrosse Magazine, to make sure that these leagues are appropriately celebrated.

Listed below is a brief summary of the standards:
1. Rules: League must adhere to all current US Lacrosse youth rules and age guidelines, have them publicly available and regularly communicated to program coaches, administrators, and parents.
2. League Administration: League has current, written policies for league governance that are publically available and regularly communicated to program administrators, coaches, parents and players through a multi-faceted communication system.
3. Safety and Risk Management: League has written policies and plans for safety and risk management that are publicly available and regularly communicated to program coaches, administrators, and parents. Unless specifically noted, all policies are followed during all practices and games.
4. Player Safety and Sportsmanship: League demonstrates a commitment to the safety of their players by publishing and promoting current information related to healthy lacrosse activity. League provides a detailed, written sportsmanship policy to players, parents, coaches, officials and administrators.
5. Screened, Trained and Certified US Lacrosse Coaches: All head coaches are NCSI background checked, trained, and at least Level 1 certified through the US Lacrosse Coaching Education Program.
6. Trained/Certified US Lacrosse Officials: Leagues must require, at a minimum that all officials assigned to league games are certified by their Local Board, and hold a current on-field rating prior to any assignment to the programs contests. All contests (with the exception of U-9 on a shortened field) will have a minimum of two officials assigned to each contest.
7. Membership: All players, coaches, officials and administrators are current US Lacrosse members.
