The box season is just around the corner……so dig out your gear and see if it still all fits…. If not and you are looking to buy some good used lacrosse gear, or if you are looking to sell some gear then this is the event for you. Items will be priced by the seller and all sales will be in cash only (ATMs in building). If you have items to sell please or if you just want to donate them to the association then e-mail SLA President Will Dodds for further details.
Also for sale will be retired association jerseys and other new association clothing (shorts, tshirts etc).
The Registrars will also be on hand if you need to drop off any documents or paperwork.
The Intermediate Shamrocks will be doing stick stringing as a fundraiser if you need to get your stick fixed up.
The following evaluation / selection process shall be implemented for the coming 2015 season for those athletes interested in playing in one of the following divisions:
The process by which the teams within the aforementioned divisions shall be selected is rooted in the concepts of fairness and opportunity with the underlying goal of fielding not only competitive “A” teams but also “B” and “C” level teams.
In a situation where as a result of registration numbers, we are able to field more than one team within the same division at a particular level every attempt to create parity between those teams will be made.
Although athletes are encouraged play a cross-section of sports, it is expected that those who are selected to an “A” team make same their priority. Teams can expect to attend two mainland tournaments over the course of the season and to attend Provincial Championships.
PLEASE DOWNLOAD THE ATTACHED DOCUMENT TO READ THE FULL DETAILS OF THIS PROCESS.
