About Souderton Area Boys Lacrosse Association
SABLA's mission is to offer our young athletes of the Souderton Area in grades K-8 the highest level of positive coaching and expert instruction within an atmosphere of team support and family values. We work hard to ensure that every athlete that steps out onto the field with a Lacrosse stick has the opportunity to play and have fun! SABLA believes not only in teaching our players to play hard and outscore the opponent but to behave like winners every day. How? By "Honoring the Game" each time we step onto the playing field. SABLA believes in the Double Goal Coaching philosophy and the Positive Coaching Alliance.
What is Double Goal Coaching?
SABLA is working in partnership with US Lacrosse and the Positive Coaching Alliance to make the de facto youth sports culture one in which very member of our lacrosse community "Honors the Game". Not only does this require a commitment from SABLA, our coaches and players but also from our parents.
The SABLA season starts with practices in March and runs until the beginning of June. Practices are held twice a week, either on Monday/Wednesday evenings or Tuesdays/Thursday evenings, depending on the age group.
