Lacrosse Athlete Development Model

Grizzly Boys Youth Lacrosse also supports the LADM.

The LADM is an organizing framework to help coaches, and parents and program leaders provide what kids need developmentally in order to grow as both athletes and people through their lacrosse experience and ideally participate in the sport for life.

It is the roadmap for how the sport of lacrosse should structure itself in order that all lacrosse participants are
able to realize their full athletic potential and utilize lacrosse as a means to an active and healthy lifestyle. It is
how we will provide meaningful lacrosse experiences for all.
