Evaluation Sessions 2013

Posted by Saanich Lacrosse at Jan 20, 2013 8:22PM PST

At Saanich Lacrosse we encourage all the players to attend evaluations so we can place the player at the appropriate tier. However if the player wants to be considered for an A team he/she must attend two evaluation sessions.

At this time, all players are welcome at any evaluation session. Each evaluation will be a scrimmage game. Please note that due to large registration numbers we may need to split the evaluation sessions alphabetically. If this is done, Saanich Lacrosse will post a notice on the website.

For injured players who are unable to participate in evaluations, please inform the Evaluation Coordinator and your situation will be reviewed with the Executive.

The evaluators will not evaluate the division their son or daughter plays in.

Any questions regarding the evaluation process please email the Evaluation Coordinator.

Thank you.

2013 President’s Message

Posted by Saanich Lacrosse at Jan 1, 2013 1:06AM PST

2013 President’s Message

To All Players, Coaches, Volunteers and Fans;

Welcome to another year of Tigers Lacrosse!

One of our goals as we approached the 2013 season was to get the ball rolling early in regards to registration and coaching appointments. As an Executive it was a priority for us to do as much as we could during the off season as we geared up for the New Year.

We have moved to an entirely on-line registration system, including payment. Generally feedback has been positive; certainly from an administrative point of view it has been the way to go! One negative effect of the change was to our Tiger Gear clothing sales which were down last year. Many of us made it a tradition to purchase a hoody, a T-shirt or a hat when we dropped in to register. Although this opportunity has been lost, through our website it is as easy as an email to shop for the newest and coolest items. Registration opens January 1st, 2013!

Coaching applications are now being accepted on-line. Check the SLA website for information.

Goalies will also be pleased to hear that we have made a significant investment in new uppers and leg pads for this coming season. It is important to remember that we are happy to provide the best equipment for our athletes but we expect in return that that the gear is treated with care!

As always, I would like to take a moment to acknowledge and thank all of our volunteers; coaches, managers and Executive members. The success of Saanich Lacrosse is directly related to the time and effort which is given by everyone involved. Are you interested in helping out? Contact any of your Executive members for information. Look for dates and times for coaching and refereeing clinics as they are planned.

We will be utilising email blast and website based communication regularly. Keep an eye out for information and updates including announcements of upcoming events including our 2013 AGM which will be held next Fall.

Looking forward to an exciting a memorable season!

Regards,
Will Dodds
President, Saanich Lacrosse Association

WINTER WORK-OUTS - must RSVP to attend

Posted by Saanich Lacrosse at Dec 18, 2012 10:46AM PST

Hello Saanich Lacrosse families,

In an effort to have our players get lacrosse sticks in their hands earlier than usual, time has been booked at Eagle Ridge on Sunday, December 30 for some winter workouts. The sessions will be organized with coaches and they will be geared towards having some fun with an emphasis on skills. Full gear will be required.

These are not considered part of the formal lacrosse season and are not the ice-breakers or evaluations which will happen in the New Year. These sessions are open to all players within the age groups below that were registered with Saanich Lacrosse in 2012 regardless of what level they played last year or what experience they have. The intention is to simply provide something extra to stir interest and get kids playing lacrosse prior to the season getting underway.

Saanich Lacrosse is not charging a fee for these sessions, however to ensure a manageable number of players are participating and to confirm player status for insurance purposes, you MUST RSVP to the contacts below if you plan to attend.

The following sessions have been booked at Eagle Ridge on Sunday, December 30:

· 6:00pm – 7:00pm – Novice players –born in 2003 and 2004 – please RSVP to vp3@saanichlacrosse.com

· 7:00pm – 8:30pm – PeeWee players – born in 2001 and 2002 – please RSVP to vp3@saanichlacrosse.com

· 8:30pm – 10:00pm – Bantam & Midget players – born in 1997 – 2000 – please RSVP to saanichvp2@gmail.com

If you have any questions you can email the contact for your age group. If you would like to play goalie and require gear, please email as well and arrangements will be made.

We hope you are able to make the workouts and depending on how they are received, additional sessions may be looked at for January.

We hope you all have a happy and enjoyable holiday season!

Thanks,
Saanich Lacrosse Executive
