Summit Girls Lacrosse

Mission Statement

To create a high level High School Lacrosse program focused on supporting players’ excellence as students, athletes, and resilient young women.

Core Values

Character, Integrity, Resilience

  1. We believe in education, and will promote a high academic standard, encouraging our players to strive for excellence in the classroom and on the field.
  2. We believe that athletic competition is an ideal avenue to learn many “life lessons” that cannot be taught in a classroom and we take this responsibility to our athletes’ character development seriously.

  3. We prioritize integrity and character over all else in our interactions, and will be positive role models for other students and members of the community at all times.

  4. We treat ourselves, teammates, coaches, parents, opponents, officials, and school staff with empathy, dignity, and respect at all times.

  5. We believe that there are Four Roles in any athletic contest: Player, Coach, Official, and Spectator.  YOU can only be ONE of these at any given meeting. Stick to your role, and be the best you can be, without concern for anyone else’s role in the event.

Dan Radatti - Varsity Coach

Dan has coached men’s and women’s lacrosse in Oregon since 2005 at the youth, middle school, high school and select club levels. Dan attended St. Lawrence University in New York and was a four-year starter of the lacrosse team as a midfielder and defenseman.

Dan is committed to teaching players sound fundamental techniques. He works hard to help them understand the nuances of the game, which translates to players becoming more adaptable and dynamic players. As student of the game, he is constantly reading, studying and striving to learn more about all phases of the game of Lacrosse.

When not coaching or playing lacrosse, Dan is busy raising his five children, running his dental practice, Deschutes Endodontics, and trying to find time to play golf.
