Bear Creek Youth Lacrosse is dedicated to the development of lacrosse in the Southwest Metro, Bear Creek, Green Mountain, and Lakewood area by providing boys the opportunity to learn and play the game in a fun and challenging atmosphere.
Bear Creek Youth Lacrosse is part of the US Lacrosse, Keeper of Lacrosse Project. The Keeper of Lacrosse Project is a character education movement focused on preserving and promoting the essence of lacrosse: the qualities and values that give lacrosse its roots and wings.
Committed to never losing sight of the past as we journey forward, US Lacrosse empowers others to instill the core values of lacrosse through the Keeper Code.
THE KEEPER CODE
Each player, coach, official and fan is asked to cradle an expected standard of behavior knows as the Keeper Code:
Play in the Spirit of the Game: play for the love of the game
Honor Traditions: be a part of something bigger than yourself
Promote Honor, Integrity, Respect: practice virtues fundamental to developing good character
Honor the opportunity to participate through grace and humility.
Serve the game with integrity in the best interest of the sport.
Respect the sport’s traditions and those who came before, holding them in the highest regard, on and off the field.
Encourage Good Sportsmanship: value qualities of conduct and attitude over outcome; each teammate or opponent is part of the same game.
Value Teamwork: no one is bigger than the game; the team - not individual stars - is the reason for the game.
Own a Commitment to Community: long after the last game, the lacrosse family remains; embrace the spirit of the game and pay it forward.
Pay it forward. The Keeper of Lacrosse Project is a donor supported initiative of the US Lacrosse Foundation. Your donation will allow us to continue to bring the soul of lacrosse back in the game.
