Hello lacrosse families!
We are working super hard on getting things together for Opening Day on April 7th!
A full agenda of events will be available very soon (including a hardest shot contest, goalie clinic, practices, Opening Ceremony and more) as well as a practice schedule for the association.
For now, here is a glimpse of some of the things you will find at the NIC between 9:00 – 2:00….
- Coloring contest and face painting for the kids thanks to our Midget Girls lacrosse team!
- Brand Express will have a table with some samples of Timbermen apparel, a few items to take and go as well as a price list and samples for managers/coaches.
- RT PRO SCOOTERS
Come on down and check these guys out. Scooters, accessories and all sorts of neat items for scooters! Check out their website!
- Stick Stringing by Starskull Lax
Local, super reasonable and terrific work!
$15.00 for stringing (you provide the mesh kit)
$5.00 to add a colored side wall
$20.00 Full dip/dye
$5.00 to add webbing spray
$5.00 to add your name, team number or image of your choice!
- Mogul Mesh
Mesh kits and shafts from Mogul Mesh will be on site for you to purchase. Located on the Mainland they sell top quality mesh and super cool shafts! Will post a price list asap!
This is a bike registry program run through the RCMP. Please follow the link attached and have a look! Bring your bikes and scooters down to opening day and get them registered, security stickers put on and show support for this super cool program!
As well as all of this we will also have tickets on sale for the Beer and Burger happening on Saturday April 7th at Old City. TIckets are selling fast so we would suggest not waiting till Opening Day to purchase as you may be disappointed!

Its going to be a fabulous day to kick off the lacrosse season in Nanaimo! Hope to see you all there!

Anyone 16 years of age or older who is coaching in the association this season will need to get registered and space is limited. Please email Cathy at firstname.lastname@example.org in order to register. Please send your name, email address and a contact phone number.
NDLA will cover the fee for the course. Once registered, BCLA will send you an access code so you can go online and do the “pre clinic” components.
New coaches are permitted to start practices and include “pending” on the game sheets under coaching number. Anyone who is not certified after the May 6th course will be removed from the roster.
If you have questions, please ask! Remember space in the courses is limited – don’t wait to register if you are not certified!
