The Saanich Lacrosse Executive would like to communicate to our membership that although the BC Lacrosse Association has not officially cancelled the 2020 box lacrosse season, they have said there will be no scheduled games, tournaments or provincials. The BCLA and Vancouver Island Minor Lacrosse Commission are working on a plan that would allow players to return to the box in some capacity. Once this plan is finalized, the Saanich Lacrosse Executive is committed to getting players out for skill development sessions, utilizing the outdoor lacrosse boxes, while still abiding by the provincial guidelines for COVID 19.

The Saanich Lacrosse Executive had already made the decision that, should the season be cancelled, refunds would be issued. This point has now arrived. The Saanich Lacrosse Executive will be meeting this week and determine the amount and process for issuing refunds. The Saanich Lacrosse Executive appreciates your patience as we work to return the registration fees as quickly as possible.

Saanich Lacrosse Video Challenge

Thanks to the Saanich Tigers that showed off their lax skills. Here is the video link:

https://youtu.be/IJBk5f0RQU0

We will be sending this to CLA and BCLA to challenge other lacrosse associations to make a similar video.

A huge thank you to Sylvi Jenner who put the video together.

The virtual passing video is coming together nicely. We need a few more videos at each division. So with the nice weather this week get outside and show us your lax skills.

Follow these instructions:

1. Wear as much Saanich Tiger’s swag as you have
2. Shoot the video outdoors in daylight, on grass, and try and have a fairly neutral background
3. Have your parent or friend shoot the video with their camera upright (vertical)
4. Receive a pass from the player’s right side
5. Do a quick lax trick
6. Pass out to the player’s left side
7. The video should be about five seconds long
8. Send the video to Slyvi Jenner at 250-208-1436

The plan is to post this on social media and challenge other minor lacrosse associations to do the same thing. You may be part of a viral video….

Saanich Lacrosse Video Challenge

Posted by Saanich Lacrosse at Apr 11, 2020 12:11PM PDT ( 1 Comment )

Calling all Saanich Lacrosse players who are desperate to get the 2020 season underway. We are all in this together and hope that social distancing will allow us to get back to the box.

The Association has a challenge for the first 25 players to respond. We are going to make a virtual lacrosse passing video. This idea came from Coach Fredi who did this with his Bantam team. Watch the video at the link below first to get an idea of how this will look.

Follow these instructions:

1. Wear as much Saanich Tiger’s swag as you have
2. Shoot the video outdoors in daylight, on grass, and try and have a fairly neutral background
3. Have your parent or friend shoot the video with their camera upright (vertical)
4. Receive a pass from the player’s right side
5. Do a quick lax trick
6. Pass out to the player’s left side
7. The video should be about five seconds long
8. Send the video to Slyvi Jenner at 250-208-1436

The challenge is open for 1 week. However, we anticipate a quick response from all the Tigers who are dying to show off their lacrosse skills. The final video will have a balance of players from each division. We will send out a second message once we have enough videos so Slyvi is not inundated with extra videos.

The plan is to post this on social media and challenge other minor lacrosse associations to do the same thing.
