CORE VALUES OF PLC

The following core values will guide the Princeton Lacrosse Club in programming and play. PLC believes that we have the potential to develop not only lacrosse skills but, more importantly, character values that will benefit today's players in later years and other endeavors. 

  • Sportsmanship - Foremost of all values is to learn a sense of fair play. We will not gloat in victory, and we will be gracious in defeat. We will promote friendship with teammates and opponents alike. 

  • Integrity - We seek to foster honesty and fair play in accordance with the rules of the game. 

  • Effort - We recognize that young athletes develop at different rates and stages and not everyone may have the same ability in any given age group, but everyone can try to perform to the best of their ability. 

  •  Enjoyment - The lacrosse experience should be fun, satisfying and rewarding for all participants. We want each child, at the end of every season to look forward to playing lacrosse again the following year. 

  • Teamwork - We value the strength of learning to work together. Lacrosse is a team sport and the only way to win is to work as a team. Teamwork is reinforced and rewarded by success in the lacrosse experience. We will not value individual exploits over team success and we will promote trust in teammates over selfish play. 

  • Loyalty - We are loyal teammates and to other parents because we understand that teamwork and overall success cannot be achieved without mutual appreciation and a desire for all players to do well.
