We at Dunlap Lacrosse look forward to fostering sportsmanship, competition, skill development and fun among our athletes. Our guiding principles follow the US Lacrosse acronym "ROOTS" which was built on the Native American traditions and beliefs. According to this acronym, at no point should winning or losing ruin the traditions of the game.
