A great effort by the Bantam team! They played some great lacrosse & made our parents proud. They won the final game against the Surrey Rebels 9-5.
Jackson Boyd was named the Provincial Tournament MVP & received a trophy, warrior bag, shirt & lacrosse stick. Great player who definitely worked hard at every game & deserved this recognition.

Dear Saanich Lacrosse families,
The Vancouver Island Lacrosse Commission is hosting the 2012 Female Lacrosse Nationals from July 29 – August 2 at Bear Mountain Arena. This is a joint effort with all associations on the Island helping to contribute. The tournament is for Bantam and Midget aged teams representing BC, Alberta, Ontario and Nova Scotia.
With the games quickly approaching, the host committee is looking for volunteers from all associations to assist with various volunteer activities. Shifts include the raffle table, 50/50 sales, hospitality room, time keeping, score keeping, clothing sales, and opening/closing ceremonies. Most shifts are during the day between 8:00am and 5:00pm and are 1.5 to 2 hours in length. There will be a volunteer raffle with a prize value of about $150. For each shift a volunteer does, their name is entered into the raffle for a chance to win the fabulous prize.
If you are able to assist this great lacrosse event with a couple hours of your time, please consider helping out. Many volunteers are needed to ensure everything goes smoothly for an event like this.
If you are interested, please contact Cheryl Whyley at firstname.lastname@example.org or 250 926-0101 to coordinate your availability with the shifts needing help.
Thank you for your consideration towards helping ensure the 2012 Female Lacrosse Nationals is a great success.
The Star Cinema in Sidney will be showing the lacrosse film “Crooked Arrows” from July 6-12. It will be playing nightly at 7:00pm with two additional showings on Saturday and Sunday at 1:00pm. Might make for a fun night out as lacrosse movies are pretty rare and this would help support a small local theatre that was willing to bring the movie in at the request of a local lacrosse player.
