New Program from Concussion Legacy Foundation and US Lacrosse
US Lacrosse and the Concussion Legacy Foundation have launched a joint initiative to create the first US Lacrosse “Team Up Speak Up Day” on March 1. Every lacrosse coach in America is being asked to give a simple, one-minute speech at the beginning of the season that helps keep athletes safe from concussion and improves the concussion culture.
MAYLA Announces Affiliation with MIPC
One of MAYLA’s primary purposes is to continually strive to educate league member coaches, players and families about our mission to serve the positive development of kids through their experiences in youth lacrosse. We as adults hold the responsibility to create positive experiences for all of our kids. To that end, we are proud to announce that MAYLA is formally affiliating with Dr. Rick McGuire and the University of Missouri’s Institute for Positive Coaching (MIPC).
Dr. McGuire is an experienced Division 1 Head Coach, a two-time Olympic Coach and one of America’s most preeminent Applied Sport Psychologists who has researched and developed a positive coaching curriculum that can help all of us to become more focused coaches as we “win kids with sport” and serve the MAYLA mission.
The MIPC curriculum and support materials are based on the best principles in Sport Psychology, Educational Psychology and the Psychology of Coaching. MAYLA has been reaching out to all member clubs and their coaches to bring the MIPC curriculum to our member clubs at their level, on dates and times that best serve your club’s coaches.
