"Inspire a vibrant experience at all levels of lacrosse, embraced by the community as a sport for life. We are cooperative and disciplined, respecting the traditions and heritage of the game."
The purpose of the Strategic Plan 2015-2019 is to inform members of Alberta Lacrosse Association (ALA) and other stakeholders of the organization’s focus for the next four years. It provides a simple yet clear framework within which the Board of Directors, staff, member leagues, clubs, and other Associations can work collaboratively towards achieving our vision for lacrosse in Alberta.
Background for the plan was obtained through consultation with club and league presidents and other key stakeholders through an online survey and consultations with the Canadian Lacrosse Association and the ALA.
The Board and key stakeholders then worked over the course of a weekend in September 2015 to develop this plan. The results of the consultation process were presented to the key stakeholders and Board members at that time.
In developing the Strategic Directions for the ALA Strategic Plan, the Board and key stakeholders considered the Strategic Directions of the Canadian Lacrosse Association (CLA), that were linked to the 2002 CanadianSport Policy. As the CLA’s strategic plan is set to expire in 2016, the ALA determined to set its own path, and align with the CanadianSport Policy (2012) and Alberta’s Going the Distance: the Alberta Sport Plan 2014 - 2024.
