The Walton Junior Lacrosse Association is built on succeeding through embracing the values of sportsmanship, commitment, education, community, and family. All members of the program will uphold these values by exhibiting hard work and respect for coaches, parents, officials, teammates, and the game of lacrosse. Our program is designed to provide a safe and enjoyable experience for all boys and girls who participate, while developing their skills and knowledge of lacrosse.
The Metro Atlanta Youth Lacrosse Association (MAYLA) is a non-profit organization and the local chapter of US Lacrosse, which is the non-profit, national governing body for the sport. MAYLA was formed in 2009 as result of the merger of the Georgia Youth Lacrosse Association and the Georgia Middle School Lacrosse League. MAYLA supports and promotes the game of lacrosse at all levels in its chapter area, which includes the Northern Georgia and Metro Atlanta Area. MAYLA also works closely with the Georgia Lacrosse Foundation to maintain the Georgia Lacrosse Hall of Fame, which honors the great players, coaches, officials, promoters and others, both men and women, who have made significant contributions to the game in Georgia. Our recreational teams compete in MAYLA.
In 2014, lacrosse joined football under the GMSAA (Georgia Middle School Athletic Association) umbrella. Our boys select teams compete under GMSAA rules.
Newtown Recreation is dedicated to increasing the quality of life in our community by providing positive sports experiences for all coaches, parents and children. We believe that each child, regardless of athletic ability, should have an opportunity to grow athletically and socially through participation in athletic programs that are fun and safe.
Our programs encourage fun, team play, sportsmanship, individual development and parental participation. We believe that playing the game is the most important reason for the contest and not who wins or loses.
We are a non-profit, self-supported, youth athletic organization of the City of Johns Creek. The day to day operations of Newtown Recreation are managed by 3 full time employees. An all- volunteer board of directors provides oversight and direction.
