News and Announcements
All coaches, managers, bench staff and executive members MUST complete a criminal record check. Please follow the link below and get this done immediately.
While we are aware that some of you have volunteered in the past we, unfortunately, do not have previous CRC’s and need to start fresh.
Once you have completed the check please send a brief email to our secretary at firstname.lastname@example.org and let her know you have completed the online portion. Please include the team(s) you are involved with so when the checks come in we can match them up and mark you “complete”.
Also, if you have a current first aid, please include that in your email to the secretary and we will note it on your team profile.
Please use this link:
If you are one of the lucky guys who have to get finger printed, please include that in your email to the secretary and keep her posted on the process!
In anticipation of more rain tomorrow evening our head coach and Novice evaluators would like to announce that evaluations are being moved to:
1:00 start time depending on your group..
New groups will be announced tomorrow. Evaluators are planning on small games and are forming new groups.
We are aware that a lot of people will potentially be away for the weekend and assure everyone that there is no need for worry. If you can’t make it the results from the previous evaluations will stand!
Please watch for group postings tomorrow.

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!
