The Detroit United Lacrosse Association is a citywide youth organization dedicated to developing student athletes of character and integrity who will serve as positive members of the community. The Detroit United Lacrosse Association works directly with youth from Detroit & surrounding neighborhoods to provide high-level lacrosse training, wellness education, and educational opportunities. Detroit United Lacrosse uses the Lacrosse Athlete Development Model and principles of the Positive Coaching Alliance.
We at Detroit United believe that Detroit’s youth deserve every opportunity to prosper in the growing sport of lacrosse while also committing to avenues of intentional community engagement through service projects and educational experiences that provide context and knowledge of Detroit’s past, present and future.
Use the sport of lacrosse to unify the youth of Detroit’s neighborhoods by promoting character education, personal development and pathways to prosperity, instilling the values of the sport: respect, honor, courage, and integrity.
We envision Detroit becoming the model city for the growth of lacrosse through its community of support, and its development of student leaders who uphold the virtues of the game, on the field and in life.
