COACHING CLINICS

Posted by Nanaimo District Lacrosse Association at Mar 22, 2018 1:32PM PDT ( 0 Comments )

The following coaching clinics are being offered in Nanaimo:

Level #1 – May 6th @ VIU, 9:00 – 4:00

Level #2 – May 4th & 5th @ VIU
May 4th – 6:00 – 10:00
May 5th – 9:00 – 4:00

Reminder that ALL BENCH STAFF MUST HAVE A LEVEL ONE – there is no “door ticket” anymore.

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 ndlaarenaallocator@gmail.com 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!

Quick shout out to all families who haven’t yet paid their 2018 lacrosse fees…
ALL FEES ARE DUE BY MARCH 22ND – without exception. We have a waitlist in many divisions and cannot hold spaces for kids who have outstanding balances.
Please send your etransfer to ndlatreasurer@gmail.com on or before the 22nd or your athlete will be released and, where applicable, a waitlisted player will be added to a roster.
Thank you for respecting the deadline and keeping your account up to date.
