"the fastest game on 2 feet"


History:

Lacrosse is the oldest sport in North America.  Developed by native Americans, the sport
would sometimes involve over 100 players between rival tribes covering 100s of acres and
being played for several days.  Today, lacrosse nationwide is governed by an organization
known as US Lacrosse which continues to search for different ways to honor the game by
emphasizing sportsmanship,  providing education courses and also providing national clinics
to improve coaching and skill development.  We seek to coach and play is such a way that fits
along with one of the goals of US Lacrosse which is to "honor the game".

In 8 short years, GACS boys lacrosse program has grown from 23 JV players to over 150 players ranging from 1st grade to seniors in High School.  In 2013, the GACS boys' program will field 1 Varsity team and 1 JV team, both competing in and governed by GHSA.   Approximately 120 boys in Elementary and Junior High will also compose 6 youth teams (2 U15, 2 U13, 1 U11 and 1 U9) and compete among other Gwinnett schools associated with the Gwinnett Lacrosse League (GLL). 

Mission:

The goal  here at GACS is to lift up this game to our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ and submit to Him in such a way that He uses this game to glorify Himself, build relationships and teach lessons that will last a lifetime.  Although we strive to improve and win every game, we understand that eternal truths are what will stand the test of time.  To remind us what it is all about, we have adopted the following as our team verse and slogan.

"Not to us, O LORD, not to us, but to Your Name be the glory because of Your Love and Faithfulness" ~ Psalm 115:1

Program / Team Slogan: "Together"

2014 Season Slogan:"Forward"
