Piedmont Community Lacrosse Association
A new dawn rises on the local landscape of recreational lacrosse. The Triad’s five existing leagues have banded together under the newly formed Piedmont Community Lacrosse Association (PCLA). The charter member organizations are TYLA, WS LAX, the Oak Ridge Youth Association, Kernerville P & R Lacrosse, and Burlington P & R Lacrosse. This governing body will primarily be responsible for mediating any inter-league matters, scheduling all league member games, and enforcing all PCLA policies and regulations.
The PCLA is headed by a eight (8) member board and will employ one director to facilitate the association’s mission. The primary mission of the PCLA will be to create uniformity amongst its league members creating a competitive and equitable environment. The PCLA will also be a leader in the effort to foster and develop recreational lacrosse across the Piedmont region of North Carolina, bringing the sport to new communities and encouraging young boys and girls to give the sport a try. Lastly, the PCLA will also help to build the volunteer infrastructure of coaches and provide training and educational opportunities for those who support member leagues.
Dave Maxson will be serving as the first PCLA director. His involvement with the sport is deep-rooted as a player, a coach, and a NC high school official. His previous experience as the ORYA president and his lacrosse community ties made him a unanimous choice for the position. The PCLA board has representation from all five (5) league members and will be responsible for drafting all PCLA policies and guidelines.
Leagues and tournaments should field U15, U13, U11 and U9 teams based on the age of the player, with Aug. 31 the cutoff date. For example, all players on a U13 team must be 12 years old or younger on Aug. 31 of the preceding year.
