Play LCA No Border No Background.png

PlayLCA is a community outreach program that provides exposure to multiple sports with an emphasis on fundamental skills in an environment that is safe, fun, and educational.

All PlayLCA programs will focus on age-appropriate skill development using a “skills over schemes” coaching strategy. Our coaches are committed to training the development of character and sportsmanship as well as their own continuous learning and networking to ensure that we are using best practices when it comes to coaching children.

We believe that sports should be fun for kids – and improvement and learning can only happen if kids stay in the game … so let’s play, LCA!!
