Why the change?
EVOLVING THE US LACROSSE SERVICE MODEL
Grounded in the 2016-2018 US Lacrosse strategic plan is the organizational mandate to evolve the overall mechanism deployed to serve the customer.
For the first time in their 20 year history, US Lacrosse has full time staff developing direct relationships with its core customers the local lacrosse organizations (youth leagues and officials organizations).
Over the course of the last several years, local lacrosse organizations have demanded a direct relationship with US Lacrosse. US Lacrosse is responding by establishing a direct service and funding model.
US Lacrosse created a task force comprised of volunteers and staff to study the volunteer chapter structure . The task force worked together for over a year to create the recommendations that are being presented at this time.
DIRECT COMMUNITY LACROSSE INVESTMENT
The changing Youth Lacrosse Landscape demands that US Lacrosse develop deeper direct relationships with community based youth leagues.
US Lacrosse is increasing our investment in community programs, which have long been the foundation of the sport’s growth to continue to build the base of young players.
We are making a significant investment to deliver value directly to youth leagues.
Direct league service and funding will support coach’s background checks, coaches and official’s education and training & program grants.
REGIONAL STAFF ROLE
US Lacrosse has 8 local regional managers strategically located across the country to provide relationship management and service to the Local Lacrosse Community.
Regional Managers (Judson) will work with local lacrosse leaders (LALF) to host Statewide Growth Summits and Local Town Hall meetings to engage lacrosse communities.
