The Fundy Lacrosse Association is pleased to announce that all of our Riptide Teams are registered and confirmed to compete in the 20th Annual Nepean Knights Lacrosse Tournament the weekend of July 15th-17th. We have been attending this tournament for many years and it has been a very rewarding experience for Players, Parents and Coaches. Our Riptide Players will also be playing in The East Coast Games Lacrosse Tournament here in Saint John the weekend of June 24th-26th.
The following have been selected to be our 2016 Riptide Coaches:
Novice – Mark Butler/Michael Butler/Scott Keir/Mike Keir
Peewee – Tim Hunt & Kris McCaustlin
Bantam – Rob Diamond & Will Bursey & Andrew Fitzpatrick
Midget – Stephen Johnston & Andrew Price
We ask that any players that are interested in trying out for one of the teams fill out the following application form located at “REGISTRATION FORM”. There is no charge to tryout and full gear is required.
If your Lacrosse Player is selected to one of the teams there will be a registration fee of $200 which will cover the following: tournament fee’s for Nepean & East Coast Games, 15 hours of practice floor time, game jersey & shorts and a team shirt. Some Coaches may decide to schedule more floor time and exhibition games at an additional charge.
All Riptide Families will be required to help run a rink during the Peter Fox Tournament and the East Coast Games, duties will include: Greeters, Time Keepers, 50/50 sellers, room cleaners etc. This is our main fundraiser that allows us to keep our registration fees low. Team Managers will form a Fundraising Committee to help those that wish to raise additional funds to offset the cost of lodging and travel.
As mentioned above this tournament has provided Players, Parents and Coaches many rewarding experiences, both in and out of the rinks. Our Teams have visited many of the local Ottawa attractions including The Museums of Science & Civilization and the War Museum that has a great Lacrosse display. We’ve visited the Parliament Buildings and some have been lucky enough to visit Calypso, Canada’s largest water park. There is also no shortage of Lacrosse to watch at the Junior and Senior level.
If you require any additional information contact the Riptide Coordinator Stephen Johnston at firstname.lastname@example.org
