Welcome to the Canon Mac Youth Lacrosse Association (CMYLA) website. The CMYLA is an all-volunteer, non-profit organization dedicated to providing children in the Canon McMillan and surrounding areas instruction, enjoyment and competition in the sport of lacrosse.
Our goal is to better develop each player and provide an appropriate level of competition for each child. In furthering this mission, CMYLA will strive for each child to have fun while learning the skills necessary to play lacrosse and to develop physically and socially to reach their maximum potential.
In addition, we also attempt to better serve the youth lacrosse community and its players, coaches, fans and parents. We are dedicated to providing positive role models to help build character, leadership and teamwork in our children that will enhance their lives beyond the sport.
The CMYLA is a member of USA Lacrosse, the governing body for lacrosse in the United States. The CMYLA provides lacrosse programs for school age children from kindergarten through eighth grade. Whether your child is at the beginner level or has been playing for years, the CMYLA has a program for them.
Our System of Beliefs
The CMYLA was formed to allow children to have a place to learn with a structured environment where they can play and at an appropriate level. The objectives of the CMYLA shall include but not limited to the following:
To foster, support and promote the ideals of good sportsmanship and healthy competition in a safe environment while encouraging positive citizenship and camaraderie among our Lacrosse teams.
To unite members in the CMYLA desiring to advance the growth of Lacrosse in our Community via organization, development, operation and administration of said League.
Raising the awareness of Lacrosse in the Canon McMillan and surrounding communities.
To field the most competitive teams possible in accordance with player participation, coach staffing, lacrosse instruction and training.
Positive Coaching - Encouragement of player effort provides for greater enjoyment by the players and ultimately leads to better-skilled and better-motivated players.
Good Sportsmanship - We strive to create a positive environment based on mutual respect rather than a win-at-all-costs attitude, and our program is designed to instill good sportsmanship in every facet.
