It's pretty simple. Youth sports can be fun to play and a joy to watch. They can also help our children learn important lessons about hard work, leadership, disappointment, perseverance, joy, frustration, teamwork, individual effort, respect and so many other important qualities we want our children to develop. They can also be a hassle when the coaches aren't good or when they don't have the same goals that you and your players have. Youth sports can also be embarrassing when coaches, players or parents aren't exhibiting good sportsmanship. 

Oak City was created because we believe that athletic development happens faster when young players are playing with skill-level peers. We believe that growing the game locally, reaching out to find neighbors and friends who might want their kids to play lacrosse is important. We've set out to develop a lacrosse organization that can develop youth lacrosse players based on their experience level and understanding of the game.

At Oak City Lacrosse Academy you'll get high level coaching from coaches who are trained in athlete development, lacrosse fundamentals and tactical understanding of the game. You'll get reliable and frequent communication about what/where/when ,and we will provide you and your players with the best sports experience in the area. 

At Oak City Lacrosse Academy, we're relentless about instilling the right culture for our program. 
Player Culture - We hold players accountable for their actions, we celebrate their successes, ask them to try harder when they have momentary failures and expect them to be good teammates, respect opponents, officials and parents. 

Parent Culture - We hold parents accountable for their behavior. We expect parents to cheer for their players and to refrain from coaching from the sideline. We also ask that you not talk or complain to officials or otherwise distract from the players who are on the field. We hope you'll be friendly to the players and parents of the other teams, cheer when any player makes a good play and enjoy the competition without being too invested in the outcome. We hope you will focus on the fun that your son is having, and always remember to tell them "I had so much fun watching you play today." 

We hope you'll become a second-goal parent, supporting your athlete by focusing on his character on and off the field. Use the car ride to listen to what they enjoyed, what they thought their best moments were and who they thought played great today.
