Let’s kick off the official start of the 2018 Lacrosse season – kids events during the day and an evening out to follow!
April 7th at Old City Station!
We are presently looking for silent auction donations. If you have something available to donate, please contact Brandy at firstname.lastname@example.org
Tickets can be purchased from NDLA Board Members, by emailing Brandy or email email@example.com
Hoping to sell out and make this event spectacular!
As we are well aware, everyone is curious about practice days for individual teams.
Currently, this information is close to being released but we are still looking for coaches in certain spots.
Once given a team, we try our best to work with our volunteer coach’s schedules and schedule as best we can for them. In a perfect work this would be like a jigsaw puzzle and everything would fit together.
Sadly, with one dry floor available April 4th, the other April 24th (hopefully), one outdoor box and a big bunch of variables on our covered facility and second outdoor box the puzzle is missing pieces. This makes scheduling for 22 teams complicated…
That said the association also knows that the city of Nanaimo leisure guide opens for registration tomorrow and a lot of our “little guys” live out of that programming book.
Therefore, to make sure Tommy gets his swim class and Molly gets her hockey lesson we are announcing:
Mini Tyke – Wednesday/Friday 5:00 – 6:00
All Tykes – Monday/Wednesday 5:00 – 6:00
Novice and up – TBD due to evaluations and team placements
Female Teams – coming asap
Hope this helps some of you plan and understand the process.
Just for clarification…
ALL PREVIOUS EVALUATION SCHEDULES ARE NULL AND VOID. THE MOST RECENT SCHEDULE FOR PEEWEE AND NOVICE WAS UPDATED THIS MORNING.
THERE ARE NO TYKE EVALUATIONS PRESENTLY SCHEDULED.
Unfortunately, due to weather, evaluations were pushed back. We have to start with our older divisions first as their league starts first.
Your little guys are equally important to us but we have time….midget and bantam commence league play on April 7th so they get priority. We are now working on evaluation #2 for peewee and #1 for novice. Once we work through these groups it’ll be tykes turn!
Females – hang in there!!! We are VERY excited to have a female team in each division this year and we will be in touch with you after spring break!
Sadly, our amazing crew of volunteers can’t get mother nature in line this year and we have had to adjust, reschedule and cancel. We apologize for any stress or confusion this has caused our lacrosse families but it is out of our hands! The safety of our lacrosse players is paramount and we will not run evaluations if there is significant risk to your athletes!
Thanks for hanging in there and good luck with evaluations!
