Dear Winston-Salem Lacrosse Family,

I hope that 2014 was as good for you and your family as it was for WS Lax!  Our boys’ and girls’ programs enjoyed much improvement and success this past year and we want to grow the number of members we welcome into the WS Lax family. 


As the New Year approaches, we are preparing for our 2015 Spring season.  The fields at the Fulton YMCA have matured and will be ready for Spring practice and games.  It will be a great venue and a terrific home for our program.  Registration has opened and I encourage you to sign your girls and boys up soon so we can better plan for the season. 


Historically, many new players have been introduced to our sport by existing players and coaches.  WS Lax would like to encourage all of our families to recruit some new players.  As an incentive, we will be offering a $50.00 reimbursement to participants who refer a player new to WS Lax .  The new player must register for the Spring 2015 season and a maximum of four referral fees will be reimbursed per participant.  This is a great way to grow our program and the sport of lacrosse!


Please let Beth Welsh(info@winstonsalemlacrosse.com) know who you refer to register.


Thank you for your support of WS Lax and we look forward to a great 2015!

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.
