The mission of the Potomac Chapter is to encourage, foster, and promote the sport of lacrosse, as played by both men and women at all levels, in Washington D.C. and the surrounding areas of Maryland and Northern Virginia.
1) For us to be able to meet and dialogue directly with the top U S Lacrosse Executives (in person) about US Lacrosse plans and programs, available now and planned, to help and support the local Chapters and Youth Leagues.
2) Secondly and MOST important
More than half of the session is allocated to provide an opportunity for exchanging ideas and networking with both your peer youth commissioners and USL Executives to define and prioritize our needs to grow and increase the excellence of lacrosse in the Greater Washington DC Metro area.
We need the support and presence of at least two commissioners from each league or area as well as all coaches interested in attending.
