Missed the early bird registration? Here is another chance to have the early bird price.
Refer a new player ( someone who has never played before ) and both you and the player you referred will receive the early bird price.

In order to know who you have referred both you and the player you have referred needs to put “referred “players name”. Referred by “players name” in the comment section of the registration form.

Once you have completed the registration form you need to select the method of payment please select “etransfer” then follow the etransfer instruction. Send the early bird amount rather than the full amount. If you have any questions about this process please contact the registrar .

Referee Info Session

Posted by Saanich Lacrosse at Jan 15, 2019 3:53PM PST ( 0 Comments )

The Saanich Lacrosse Association is hosting an information session for individuals interested in becoming a referee. Referees and shot clock personnel are essential in order to play the game and we are encouraging all individual 13 years and up to come and learn more.

Join Head Referee, Ryan White and Referee Allocator, Jan Malinosky, on:

Monday, February 18th
5:30 – 7:00pm
Braefoot Community Centre (upstairs boardroom)

Ryan and Jan will be at this session to talk about the benefits of refereeing, answer questions, explain the certification process and the mentoring program. We are looking to recruit individuals who are 13 or older and no prior experience with the game of lacrosse is required.

Anyone with any interest at all is encouraged and more than welcome to drop in. Refreshments will be provided.

A note from Head Referee:

My life would not be as enjoyable, or nearly as full, if I didn’t referee and the sport has been very, very good to me. I encourage anybody thinking about taking a referee course to sign up and keep an open mind of the many wonderful things that refereeing can bring to your life.
