ROOTS of the Game:
As the Shenedehowa Lacrosse community (Players, Parents, Volunteers, Coaches and Board of Directors) we want to always work to respect the ROOTS of the game:
- RULES: We refuse to bend/break the rules to win.
- OPPONENTS: Value and recognize that a worthy opponent brings out our best, and we take a "fierce and friendly" attitude into competition.
- OFFICIALS: We respect officials even when we disagree with them.
- TEAMMATES: We never do anything to embarrass our team (on or off the field). We fully support and encourage all teams.
- SELF: We live up to our standards of honoring the Game, even when others don't.
