Our goal is to provide recreational sports for kids that attend Lakeshore Elementary School, Lakeshore Middle School and those who attend Mount Mourne IB, Pine Lake Prep, Langtree & Iredell Charter and home school kids in the area - where Lakeshore would be their home school. LYAA is a member of the Lake Area Youth Athletic Conference (LAYAC) that oversees youth sports in our area
(visit the LAYAC webpage for more info).
Our Mission is to teach the general rules and regulations of the various sports, instill a sense of teamwork and character in each player and to teach the proper skills needed to succeed outside the organization as players progress toward middle school and high school sports.
LYAA is an all volunteer, non-profit organization! Proceeds from sports registrations, sponsors, and fundraisers are used to purchase new sports equipment, maintain fields or they are donated to Lakeshore schools in ways such as the new staircase to the upper field, batting cages, new sports equipment, etc. We have directors for each sport and coaches who have first call the following year to coach again or coach up a level as their kids move up. We are always in need of coaches and assistant coaches. We have an executive board and general board members who meet once per month and anyone is invited to attend.
