The Lacrosse Program is getting ready to send 11 student-athletes to Baltimore to participate in the UPLAX JV Field Lacrosse tournament.  We are adding four student-athletes from outside our program to join the team that is playing in the tournament.  The trip will be a whirlwind trip with the team playing six games over the weekend.  The competition will be tough and it will definitely be a learning experience for all of us that are attending the event.  The primary reason we are going to the tournament is to give our student-athletes exposure to top end field lacrosse.  Field lacrosse is growing in Canada, but in Alberta we are still lagging behind Ontario and British Columbia in participation.  Giving our student-athletes an opportunity to play against well coached teams will allow us to learn the game quickly and hopefully bring back those lessons to other players and coaches in Alberta.  There may be some difficult lessons learned, but I think all of our kids are excited to get there and play.  Watch the video below of a team from Burnaby taking on an American team at last week’s UPLAX Varsity tournament.
