Vancouver Island Field Lacrosse Spirit of Winter 2010 Players

The next generation!

Hello All,

Attached is a photo of our 3 teams that attended the U8/10 Spirit of Winter Jamboree in Duncan on Dec. 12th.

The day was a success, with many smiling faces, happy parents, and lots of talk of ’can’t wait till next year’!!

Our U8’s had never played a game before today. The Island’s 2 U10 teams basically played each other all season…hence why we need to boost Field Lacrosse.

Huge Thanks you’s to Shane Mousseau of Mid Isle, Jane Dixon, Kathy Cook and Barb Calve, all from Vic Field, for helping organize the day.

The players and coaches went home with a unique tshirt for participation, everyone was fed lunch, someone won a Shamrock Jersey, a toonie stick and many players went home with a Timbermen Ball cap.

This is the new beginning of expanding Island Field Lacrosse.

So remember we are needing one delegate from each of your associations to come on board and help with the development plan for next year.

This way your association can join in the excitement we all enjoyed yesterday.

The future of our Island Lacrosse starts and continues with the wee ones, talk it up at your box tournaments, get into your schools,.. Without more U8-U10 teams in more associations, this could cause the fall of Vancouver Island Lacrosse.

Marnie Evans

U8/U10 Commissioner

Team BC Tryouts – Recent Update (11/21/2010)

2010-11-21

Road conditions….

Team BC Tryouts – Recent Update (11/21/2010)
by Scott Browning

We have received concerns with weather related road conditions for north of the Malahat for tonight.

I have consulted with Team BC program coordinator Rey Comeault, U19 Coach Brian Spaven, and BCLA executive Ron Mcquarrie and we have reviewed the situation.
The roads are currently clear and wet and there are no road advisors posted on Drive BC. While it will certainly be cold, we feel we have done the necessary due diligence that allows us to continue to with tonights tryouts.

While we would prefer to see all players at tonights tryouts, for those who’s address is north of the Malahat, if you choose to not attend coaches will make themselves available next Sunday, November 28th for evaluations in the mid island/Nanaimo area. Details will need to be arranged.

For all interested players who live south of the Malahat this is your opportunity to tryout for the Team BC program.

Very Urgent, Coaching Staff

2010-10-25

Coaching certification

Please follow the link below to start your coaching programs, ASAP. If you need certification please also reply to me so that I can register you for the clinic. box certification does not count! The last clinic on the island was cancelled because the online registration process was not followed (or because we did not have the info), so at the last island meeting Bryan Baxter asked that associations get proper information sent out to coaches

All coaches and assistant coaches are required to be trained and certified in accordance with the both the CLA and BCLCA operating policies. We have paid for them to attend in the past, once they have attended the clinic.

Here’s the link to the information you will need dates, times etc:
