Saanich Lacrosse - Registration, Waitlists and Evaluations.

Notice on Registration, Waitlists and Evaluations.

Registration for the 2016 Box Lacrosse season has been open for just over a month. In this time we have had a good response, particularly in the Bantam and Midget divisions. As we indicated in previous notices we will begin a waitlist process once the number of registrations in a division reaches a predetermined number. We know there has been some confusion about this process so we would like to try to explain how it works.

We base our waitlists on past years’ registration numbers. Our goal is to ensure that we have an appropriate number of players for each team. This could be defined as 18 runners and either 1 or 2 goalies. If, for example, we are expecting 3 teams in a division we will waitlist players once we have reached 2 full teams. If a player is waitlisted he/she will be informed. As soon as we have enough players to create three teams we will contact the players on the waitlist. Please note: if a division is waitlisted the Saanich Lacrosse Executive will do its’ best to encourage registration in that division to allow us to remove the waitlist. You can help us by talking with friends who have not yet registered and encourage them to do so.

We hope this waitlist process makes sense. If you haven’t already registered remember that the early registration discount is open until January 15th. You can contact our registrar Rich Burman at if you have any questions concerning registration.

Moving forward in the New Year we will be releasing the dates for our Ice-Breaker Schedule. The executive is also working on coaching assignments and player evaluations. All evaluations will begin in February with the goal of having finalized teams by Spring Break. Remember that in addition to mail out notifications you can see schedules on Team Pages at

We are all looking forward to a great 2016 Box Lacrosse Season.

Wishing you all the best for the New Year.

Saanich Lacrosse Executive.
