Tax receipts for Saanich Lacrosse

Posted by Saanich Lacrosse at Mar 11, 2017 3:57PM PST

As we get closer to the due date for individual tax returns we are receiving some questions about tax receipts for the Saanich Lacrosse registration fee.

The tax receipt is part of the email you receive on confirmation of your online registration.

Each year you will receive an email with the following subject line: Saanich Lacrosse Association 2016 Registration Successful. If you search your old emails by this subject line you will find your 2016 registration confirmation. Scroll down, and you will see the British Columbia Lacrosse Association Registration Receipt. Your 2017 receipt will also be in one of your email folders.

Any questions, please contact our registrar Rich Burman at

Thank you.


The BC Lacrosse Association is hosting a Female Only Community Coach Development Box Lacrosse Clinic for any/all interested women/girl’s on Vancouver Island. The goal of the clinic is to create an engaging learning environment for new and/or experienced volunteers looking to get involved in lacrosse.

The clinic will be facilitated by Development Coach, Naomi Walser. Naomi is an amazing coach/teacher who makes it easy to learn even if you are inexperienced. She has coached a variety of male and female start up teams, local teams, and Team BC squads. She has been facilitating coaching clinics across BC and is looking forward to sharing techniques that enable coaches to feel confident teaching lacrosse.

Learning how to teach the basic fundamentals of lacrosse can be fun and easy. Girls are excited to play, and they are a lot of fun to coach. If you have a knack for fun, and are looking for a new way to get involved in the community, this clinic is for you.

When: Saturday April 1st, 2017

9:00am – 12:00pm Classroom
