The mission of LASF is to empower youth to achieve significance in life through success in sports.



 LASF Programs are guided by the CORE VALUES of:

Mutual Respect

In order for individuals to work effectively together, they need to be able to recognize the worthiness of each other as persons, to identify the strengths and weaknesses of others without blame, and perform reflective self-assessments.  Mutual respect is the foundation of a physically and emotionally safe environment; it provides the social context for physical, social and ethical development.  Understanding and demonstrating mutual respect are both essential for social competence, which all students need to be successful.

Effective Communication

Effective speaking, listening, reading, writing, and body language skills for the purposes of greater understanding provide youth with access to opportunities for advancement, growth, and development.  Effective communication depends not only on the communicator but also on the receiver of the communication.  An effective communicator takes into account the readiness of the receiver, including attention to his or her physical, emotional, and developmental needs.

Clear and Developmentally Appropriate  Expectations

Setting and clearly communicating expectations appropriate to the cognitive, emotional, and physical development of the other brings out the best in both coaches and players.  By communicating clear expectations, individuals are respected and more able to participate in the activity.  Thoughtfully constructed expectations lead to higher performance by everyone.  Importantly, everyone’s expectations need to be assessed and shared to achieve a common understanding of each individual’s expectations.

Advancing Intellectual and Ethical Development

Many everyday problems in school, social gatherings, and on the court are complex.  Helping children and adults to identify conflicts and problem-solve for solutions helps them to develop both their thinking and their character.  It is important to engage each other in problem solving by, for example, taking more information into consideration, gaining a more sophisticated understanding of the information, predicting the consequences of one’s actions, and constructing alternate solutions. Importantly, learning to take the perspective of another not only helps individuals solve problems, it also helps them develop a profound sense of respect for the experience of another.
