REVIVAL LACROSSE CAMP

Posted by Saanich Lacrosse at Mar 10, 2014 8:20AM PDT

Revival Lacrosse and Arrow Express Sports (AES) have announced a partnership for 2014. Seven-time National Lacrosse League All-Pro and 2009 MVP Dan Dawson will hold camps in Oakville, Victoria and Six Nations in the coming months.

“Our main goal is to grow the game at the grassroots level, and to give the best instruction to kids that we can,” said the Knighthawks forward. “We not only do that by having the best lacrosse players in the world at these camps, but they are also the best teachers.”

The camps are open to 90 players at the Tyke, Novice, PeeWee and Bantam levels. Joining Dawson this summer at different camps are Rochester Knighthawks goalie Matt Vinc, Knighthawks forwards Cody Jamieson, Craig Point, Mike Accursi and Stephen Keogh, along with Buffalo’s Anthony Cosmo, Toronto’s Bill Greer, and Calgary’s Jeff Shattler and Dan McRae.

“These guys are great ambassadors for the sport and that’s very important for what we are trying to do,” said Dawson. “Lacrosse is a very unique sport where the players are very much engaged as far as the fans and local players. We are excited to be growing the business and taking them across North America.”

The camp will be held at Bear Mountain Arena (home of the Shamrocks) in Victoria, BC from Monday, July 21st to Thursday July 24th. Camps will run daily from 9:00am– 12:00pm (Tyke and Novice) and 1:00pm – 4:00pm (PeeWee and Bantam).

Registration is now open and interested players can register at www.aeslacrosse.com under the programs header.

It has been brought to the attention of the Canadian Lacrosse Association (CLA) that the Under Armour Pro Box Lacrosse Cage Face Mask is being falsely advertised as being “CLA Approved” and claiming to “meet CSA standards”.

The CLA would like to clearly state that as of February 27, 2014 the Under Armour Pro Box Lacrosse Cage Face Mask is NOT CSA-approved and therefore is not legal for use per CLA policy 12.4.2. The CLA has confirmed that although Under Armour is in the process of obtaining CSA approval, there are a number of components missing and therefore the certification has not been granted.

The CLA does not approve facemasks for lacrosse. The CLA endorses facemasks that are approved by the CSA.

Additional Ice Breakers have been added for Novice, Tyke and Mini Tyke players!

All sessions are open to all players in the division who are currently registered with Saanich Lacrosse.

Thanks,
Saanich Executive
