Welcome to the 2017 Upstate Lacrosse Association (ULA) Season

Opening Weekend was a huge success!  Thank you to all that participated! Check out this awesome article on Syracuse.com


 The Upstate Lacrosse Association’s (ULA) primary focus is on the instructional and developmental aspects of the game of lacrosse.  The ULA serves Central New York boys and girls from the third grade through the eleventh grade.  There is also a K-2 division in the ULA however, this program operates independently from the larger association.

 The ULA was established in June, 1994, under the name Brine Upstate Youth Lacrosse League (B.U.Y.L.L.).  The following year the name was modified to just the B.U.L.L.  In 2009, the name was changed to Upstate Lacrosse Association (ULA).

 The goal of the ULA is to be a recreational youth lacrosse program designed to help players at all levels further develop their lacrosse skills and abilities.  The ULA also focuses on the importance of learning other life skills such as: responsibility, sportsmanship, and being a part of a team.  This approach is most clearly exemplified by the ULA’s commitment to adjust the rules of the game to best meet the players skill development and further develop their understanding of the great game of lacrosse.  


 The Upstate Lacrosse Association (ULA), by teaching the fundamentals and foundations of lacrosse, strives to provide the youth players of Central New York with a healthy, positive, and safe learning environment in which the game of lacrosse will be taught, played, and enjoyed while instilling good sportsmanship, teamwork, discipline, charity, and integrity.
