Colorado Coaches Challenged to Become Certified USL Coaches!

Calling all Colorado coaches! Now that the season has wrapped up, it's a great time to complete your Level 1 or Level 2 coaching certification through the US Lacrosse CEP (Coaching Education Program) so you're all set for next spring. Many of you have already attended the required CEP clinic, now you just need to complete your online course (PCA and USL) and background check to become certified. All certified coaches that attend the Rocky Mountain Regional Convention will get an extra 'goody' in their check in bag! Not sure what you have completed? Log in to your account at www.uslacrosse.org.

CONGRATULATIONS to the 64 coaches that are currently USL Certified Coaches, way to go! Let's see if we can get another 250 coaches certified in time for the Spring 2013 season!

Need to attend a Level 1 or Level 2 clinic? We are working closely with US Lacrosse to offer several of each before the end of 2013. Stay tuned for dates and locations!

                                                                                            

 

Thank you PANTHERS!

Each spring, the Panthers youth boys organization holds a preseason tournament that gives teams a chance to get out and play early games and helps the CYLA (Colorado Youth Lacrosse Association) by providing a location for on field referee training. It is a benefit tournament and again this year, CLF was the recipient of a portion of the proceeds ($1,100). Thank you Panthers! If you are interested in helping with the tournament next March, please contact Amy Lane. It would be wonderful if CLF could 'give back' to the Panthers organization with help organizing and running the tournament.

Please contact Amy Lane if you would like to make a donation to CLF. Your gift to CLF may be tax deductible to the extent of the law. Please consult with your financial advisor.
