Thank you to the 130 players that attended this year’s Vimy Lacrosse Spring Break Camp.  The talent level is getting higher each year and the enthusiasm for the sport of lacrosse was clearly evident. Under Armour Lacrosse again assisted us in giving each camper a great gift.  This year each player and goalie received an Under Armour shaft.  Thank you to the Edmonton Rush players, Ryan Dilks, Jeff Cornwall and John Lintz for giving up their time to work with all the players.  It is always special to have the NLL players up front and center working with the players.

It was a great two days, now bring on the box lacrosse season.

Holden Cattoni, a sophomore at Johns Hopkins University, is making large contributions to the offensive production of his team.  The Blue Jays currently sit with a 5-0 record and are near the top of all rankings.  Holden, a leader for the Okotoks Raiders Junior A team, has scored 6 goals and 4 assists for the Blue Jays.  Another great Alberta boy doing some amazing things in the NCAA.  Watch here are Holden scores 1 goal and gets 4 assists in a recent game against UMBC.

 

Cool video, with the many faces of Jimmy Quinlan.  He sure looked young in a few of those shots.  Great career.  I have learned a lot from him and my kids have learned a lot from him.  He’s still teaching them.  You don’t survive in pro lacrosse for that long unless you have some serious determination.  Very disappointed I was not there tonight to see the number go in the rafters, but from what I hear it was a great night capped off with a serious ass kicking of the Roughnecks.  I tip my hat.

 

What will 2014 bring this lacrosse season?  Will the Rush bring a playoff game back home?  Will Canada take the World Field Championships in July?  What will the Minto Cup look like this summer?  Who will reign supreme in the NCAA college lacrosse season?  The lacrosse season for 2014 has begun.  Did you know that there are some Division I scrimmages scheduled for the end of January?  I have no idea how much fun that would be if there snow was flying, but the season is just weeks away.  I hope your 2014 lacrosse season is a great one.  Even if the wins do not pile up, go out, pick up your stick and enjoy the opportunity to play this great game.  Vimy Lacrosse will be going hard again in five days and our recruitment for the 2014/15 year now starts.  I am looking forward to working with the next great group of student-athletes.  Have a great 2014. 

 

 

 

 

downloadMerry Christmas and I hope you awoke today to loads of lacrosse gear and swag.  The Edmonton Rush players hopefully aren’t loading up on too much turkey and Wild Turkey as they are just three days away from their opening game against the Colorado Mammoth in Colorado.  We know the Rush are bringing back a great defense, but will their offense be able to keep pace to finally get this team a championship?  The new roster rules may play a huge part this season as practice roster players will need to be able to step in immediately when called on.  Also, with only 16 runners on the bench, conditioning will be a premium.  Thus back to hoping the boys are laying off the Christmas Cheer.
