GCL Diversity, Equity & Inclusion Statement

Gulf Coast Lacrosse believes in the importance of inclusion and the value of diversity within our youth organization. GCL encourages members to define diversity as an organizational priority along with expectations of inclusion and equity within all of our programs.  GCL is committed to diversity, inclusion and gender equity among its players, coaches and volunteers. We want to establish and maintain an inclusive culture that fosters equitable participation and improves the learning environment for players and positive experiences for coaches and volunteers from diverse backgrounds.



Gulf Coast Lacrosse (GCL) is a non-profit community-based organization in Sarasota, FL with the mission to promote the development and growth of youth/high school lacrosse through an inclusive, safe, affordable and fun environment.


Three programs. One Mission: to grow the game of lacrosse and provide young athletes an inclusive, safe, affordable and fun place to learn the sport and the love of the game!



3. TRAINING/ CLINICS/ EDUATION for coaches, players, referees, parent/ player enrichment 


Most of the local area high schools in Sarasota County and nearby have boys and girls lacrosse programs, however, there are not many affordable elementary and middle school options available to kids who would otherwise try lacrosse. Our rec-style and volunteer-based program is geared towards Sarasota area youth who would appreciate an opportunity to try lacrosse in an inclusive, safe, affordable and fun environment. Young players will learn the rules of the game, build confidence and self-esteem, develop social skills, and gain an understanding of teamwork, coordination and athletic skills necessary to play competitive lacrosse. The goal is for elementary and middle school aged student athletes to pick up the sport of lacrosse, learn the fundamentals, and find a love of the game so that they are primed and ready to play for their high school freshman year!


Our programs are supported through grants, donations, sponsorships and with the help of volunteers, to ensure that any fees will be nominal to our players. DONATE TODAY!
