News and Announcements
Wanted to let everyone know the rest of the dates for the FREE Female Box Lacrosse session that will be held in 2014 at Pearkes Fieldhouse. Once we get into the new year we will open registration for the Spring 2015 season and regular team level practices can begin.
The dates we have booked are:
Friday, Oct 10
Sunday, Oct 26
Wednesday, Nov 12 (7-9 only)
Sunday, Nov 23
Saturday, Dec 13
We have intentionally moved the dates around a little as we know that some girls have other commitments now so they can’t attend certain days.
These bookings are for 6-9, so we will be breaking into two groups… For girls that will be PeeWee and younger (born in or since 2004) the time will be 6-7:30pm. For the older girls (born before 2004) the time will be 7:30-9pm. For parents that have girls in both age groups you can have them both attend either session or if you have a daughter that can’t make the session they would normally be in they can also attend the other session…..we are just using this as a way to easily divide the group and ensure there is equipment and room for all the girls.
We are also going to send out notices via the schools (now that they are back), so we are hoping for some brand new players at the next session….so it isn’t too late to bring along a friend if there is someone that is interested. We do need a form completed so if you are bringing a friend then I can provide a copy of the form in advance for the parent to sign.
Our goal is going to be to have a scrimmage session on the Wednesday, November 12th which is only a 7-9 session……but need to figure that out as we know many of the girls may not have gear.
We are very excited about the prospects for the Vancouver Island Female League in 2015 and would ask that you help spread the word as we want to make sure we have lots of girls involved as we will find a place for all that want to play.
As always if you have any questions/concerns, just ask and I’ll try to find the information for you….Linda.email@example.com
For all those girls (5-16) out there that would like to try out lacrosse, but don’t want to play with the boys…. come out to these FREE introductory sessions. The Female Box Lacrosse is a low contact sport (place and push not full contact), but it is still the same fun fast paced competitive game.
Nanaimo and the lower mainland already have a number of teams playing league, tournaments and Provincials…. and the goal is to get Victoria teams going for the 2015 season. These FREE introductory sessions are to let the girls try out the sport (equipment will be supplied) and spread the word about this new opportunity for the girls.
The first of the sessions will be held on Wednesday, September 17th 6-8 at Pearkes Fieldhouse (Tillicum). There is no cost and no equipment is required….the Girls just need to wear runners and bring a water bottle. A signed registration form will be required for each player which can be e-mailed to parents ahead of time if needed.
So spread the word and let’s get more girls learning about and playing this wonderful sport!
If you have any questions/concerns, please feel free to contact firstname.lastname@example.org

The Saanich PeeWee C team after an amazing regular season record of 13-1-2 went on to successfully beat a very tough and physical Campbell River team to win first overall in the Vancouver Island league championships! The team then went on to the provincial championships in Richmond in which they won their first 3 games. The Tigers met a formidable Port Coquitlam team in a hard fought gold medal game and took away the Silver medal.
Way to go TIGERS for a very successful year!
Six Saanich Midget A1 players returned home with a bronze medal this past Sunday. The six players played with Team Island (Zone 6) in this years BC Summer Games. Team Island went through the tournament with only one loss to the eventual gold medal winners Fraser River/Delta.
