Lacrosse is a fast-paced and hard-hitting sport that sets itself apart with unique mechanics. With fundamental indigenous roots, lacrosse was Canada’s only National Sport from 1867-1994. Gameplay is similar to hockey, with two teams competing to score in their opponent’s goal, but unlike any other game, players use a netted stick to pass and shoot a ball. Lacrosse requires skill and accuracy, but also an incredible amount of stamina. Lacrosse is played outdoors on soccer sized fields from September to February.
Registration begins in July. Training will begin in September.
Yes, the elements for field lacrosse do have exposure to rain. Games/practices will be cancelled due to freezing rain, snow, or turf freezing. We will play on in rain or even sunshine! That being said, unlike box lacrosse, we recommend you have your child’s gear stored in a Rubbermaid tote so dry wear (jackets, etc) is protected while they play so they have something warm to change into.
All information collected during registration will only be used by my local lacrosse association and the British Columbia Lacrosse Association for registration purposes. The information collected will not be shared with any parties outside of the BC Lacrosse Association and its members.

Uniforms are supplied for all players for the season with a deposit of $100 per jersey.
Please keep in mind that uniforms are a big expense for JDF and taking proper care of them is extremely important.
These uniforms are only being loaned out to the players and do not belong to our players. Therefore players should not be wearing the club uniform for purposes other than lacrosse games. If players are unable to comply, the jerseys will be collected and distributed before and after each game.
DO NOT WEAR YOUR JERSEY FOR PRACTICES!
Proper care of uniforms:
Shorts can be purchased by players for $25 per pair. If purchasing, please select the size for your child’s shorts on your online registration.
