Lacrosse Starts on Monday!
Please check the schedule on the website for your time slot. There are no evaluations planned for the mini-tyke or midget divisions.
We will be carrying out evaluations from Monday through Thursday at the Belyea Arena.
The evaluations are not tryouts. We use this process to help balance the teams so they are made up with players of equal skills.
We will have a mini-jamboree on April 18th and 19th. Details will be emailed out following the evaluations.
Practices and games will begin on April 20th.
Important Information for Evaluations
Bishop's University in Sherbrooke, Quebec recently announced their athletic award winners for 2015. Freshman Taren Cook of Rothesay, New Brunswick was named Rookie of the Year for the men's lacrosse team. Taren finished his rookie season tied for second in team scoring with 17 goals in 10 games. This was also good enough for 11th in the CUFLA eastern conference for goals scored.
The game of lacrosse in New Brunswick is about to be taken to a whole new level thanks to a unique partnership between Lacrosse New Brunswick (LNB) and lacrosse superstar, Colin Doyle, Captain of the Toronto Rock. LNB recently signed a contract that will involve Doyle in a series of training camps run in the Saint John and Moncton areas from January to April which will be open to players from the Novice to Midget divisions from across the province. “The Lacrosse New Brunswick Program for Excellence” will allow children the opportunity to experience the game under the direction of local coaches with Doyle developing and guiding the program, attending sessions virtually to speak to the players and making four in-person appearances throughout the course of the training. He will also be present to personally coach the New Brunswick provincial teams at the 2015 Nationals in Whitby, Ontario. This is an incredible opportunity for local lacrosse players to develop their skills under the direction of one of the top players in Canada. “This is a once in a lifetime opportunity for our young players”, says Dave Higdon, President of Lacrosse New Brunswick, “Not only will this program raise the profile of the game here in the province, it will give children the opportunity to learn from the best!” Registration is now open for new and returning players in the Novice, Peewee, Bantam and Midget age groups with sessions commencing on Sunday, January 11th with the first live clinic with Doyle. For more details on times and locations and to download a printable registration form, go to the Lacrosse New Brunswick website at www.laxnb.ca or by visiting your local lacrosse club website.
