We fund and provide educational and organizational support for lacrosse programs at Palisades Charter High School, and in Pacific Palisades enabling children to learn and play the game.
While many schools are struggling to start a lacrosse program, we are very fortunate to have a long established program for both boys and girls. This is due to continual efforts of coaches, players and parents contributing to help the program excel. PPLA (Pacific Palisades Lacrosse Assoc., Inc.) is the non-profit booster made up of parent volunteers assisting the program with funding and organizational support.
Lacrosse at Pali High began in 2003 when the Pacific Palisades Lacrosse Club (PPLC) was formed as a boys club lacrosse team with approximately 20 boys and began playing in the Pacific Coast Lacrosse Association in the Spring 2004 season. In the very next season, the number of players increased 50% and by March 2006, the founders of PPLC formed the “Committee For Lacrosse at Pali High” and presented a proposal to Pali High for the creation of an official School Based team. The proposal was accepted, and an expedited application to the California Interscholastic Federation (CIF) was approved for Pali High to have a lacrosse team play in the CIF Southern Section beginning in March 2006.
PPLA (Pacific Palisades Lacrosse Association, Inc.) is a a 501(c)(3) non-profit organization serving to administratively and financially support boys and girls lacrosse at Palisades Charter High School and encourage the growth of youth lacrosse in our community. Above all, we aim to make lacrosse accessible to ALL Palisades High School students. Membership consists of parents and guardians of all current lacrosse players. We support and aid PCHS’s lacrosse program, enrich the educational and athletic experience of the lacrosse program’s student athletes, and raise funds in support of these purposes.
