In July 2018, the BC Summer Games are taking place in the Cowichan area. The BC Games brings together British Columbia's best emerging athletes, trained coaches, and certified officials for four days of competition. The games are a milestone event that people count as an experience of a lifetime where memories, friendships, spirit, and pride are abundant.
The BC Lacrosse Association is looking for zone coaches for both Box Lacrosse and Field Lacrosse. The application is now up on the BCLA website https://bcla.imeetcentral.com/bcla/doc/WzIsNDMwNTkxMTBd/. Coaches, leading up to the Games, will need to be Trained at Competitive Introduction - Level 2. The deadline to apply is 11 January 2018.
The BC Lacrosse Association is preparing for the 2017-18 Stealth-BCLA "Lacrosse on the Move" 50-50 sales during the Vancouver Stealth home games. All net proceeds (50% of gross sales) go lacrosse teams traveling to Minor Box Provincials, Youth Field Provincials, and Team BC Athletes who face financial barriers to travel to National Championships and/or for training purposes preparing for National Championships. For the past three years, approximately $116,000 has been dispersed across the province for these purposes. It is our hope to do even more in 2017-18!
The BCLA is looking for 20 keen, assertive, hard-working 50-50 volunteer sellers who are 19 years of age or older. 50-50 volunteers will have free admittance into the games (sellers are done at the end of half time so you'd be able to watch the rest of the game) and a little cash for a snack. Best of all, by volunteering, you'll be supporting amateur lacrosse athletes from across the Province of BC!
If you are interested in helping, please send an e-mail to firstname.lastname@example.org to let the BCLA know which games you're willing to help. Click here for the complete Vancouver Stealth 2017-2018 Home Game Schedule.
