The purpose and function of the Lake Area Youth Athletic Conference (LAYAC) is to enrich and balance the athletic and educational experiences of athletes at its member associations, to enhance athletic and academic integrity among its members, to provide leadership and to do this in a spirit of fairness to all.
The following graphic shows a representation of LAYAC and the member associations. Parents should register for sports with the organization where their kids attend school (or would attend if they are enrolled in IB or Charter schools):
Note: Iredell County, Statesville, and Mooresville Rec Departments are not included in the Lake Area Youth Athletic Conference. We may participate in sports with their leagues, but they are separate entities from the school-based associations under the LAYAC umbrella. In addition, these leagues are subsidized by county and city funds; all of the LAYAC associations are non-profit.
