The Grande Prairie Lacrosse Association (GPLA) has been the governing body of lacrosse in Northern Alberta zone 8 since 2004. We currently support box lacrosse teams in all levels from Mini Tyke to Seniors. We are a small but dedicated board of parent volunteers who work diligently to increase the presence of lacrosse in the Peace Region.
The Mission Statement of the Organization is as follows:
The Grande Prairie Lacrosse Association's mission is to promote the growth of lacrosse through the formation of amateur clubs in the Peace Area. To keep and maintain a set of guidelines and to provide uniform playing rules for amateur lacrosse. Our goal is to promote excellence and integrity in our players and volunteer staff throughout the community, amongst their families and on the field of play.
Our focus is to create a safe, positive and fun environment firmly rooted in:
- Player and skill development for all levels
- healthy competition where Fairness, Sportsmanship and team play are Fostered and role modeled.
- Respect for other players, coaches officials and teams
- Player and coach commitment to hard work for the development of the Sport of Lacrosse
