Good morning lacrosse families!

For anyone who is looking for financial assistance with the cost of registration, please feel free to check out the links to both Kidsport and Jumpstart. NDLA works with both of these organizations.

Kidsport – http://www.kidsportcanada.ca/british-columbia/nanaimo/
Jumpstart – http://jumpstart.canadiantire.ca/content/microsites/jumpstart/en/apply.html

Please feel free to register your player and, upon completing the registration, please email our treasurer Trina (ndlatreasurer@gmail.com) and let her know that you have applied, the date of the application and the name and age of your player.

Remember that there are specific criteria you must meet and until you have been approved for funding your player is not deemed registered so do not wait! Deadline for applying for these programs is January 20th as it can take a few weeks to hear back and your player must be FULLY REGISTERED and payment received before they can be evaluated (insurance purposes).

Anyone interested in volunteering as a coach for the upcoming season please get your applications completed and in to our Head Coach, Steve, at S.Bishop@slegg.com
Applications can be found on the website under the heading “2018 Coaching Staff” and must be completed and submitted.
REMINDER: There are no longer “door personnel” – anyone who wishes to be on the bench will need to complete their level one coaching certification. Dates and times for the course will be determined and interested volunteers will be registered. Questions about the course can be directed to Sean at seanbcloa@gmail.com
We need to insure that we have sufficient coaches and bench staff to make the season a success! Please consider volunteering!
