2022 Burnaby Minor Lacrosse Club online registration coming mid-December 2021
Lacrosse after Minor….
So, you’ve now completed your time in the Minor ranks of Box Lacrosse and the next level is Junior Lacrosse.
Junior Lacrosse falls under Senior Lacrosse (you were under the umbrella of Minor Lacrosse from mini-tyke to 16U). Junior is a five-year program comprised of Junior A, B1 and B2 tiers.
Junior A is the top level in Junior and the championship is the Minto Cup.
Each Burnaby Junior (A/B1/B2) level has try outs and an email will go out with information on when/where starting with A try outs. If you don’t wish to try out for A but do want to try out for B1/B2 you can be put directly onto the B1 or B2 try out list.
There will be a Junior A team staff/coach/player/parent meeting in the new year in the Lakeview Room inside Bill Copeland Sports Centre where all are invited and can ask questions and listen to the coaches discuss the upcoming season (all depending on Covid).
Junior A practice twice a week and games (as scheduled). Junior B1 & B2 practice once a week and games (as scheduled). A/B1 teams travel to the Island (Victoria/Nanaimo) via bus with the team for those games (a per diem is given to each player for food).
There is a fee to play and that information will be sent out to all players by tier (A/B1/B2) but if you obtain the minimum level sponsor then you don’t need to pay the fee (as it’s covered in the sponsorship).
Team shorts, dry fits & golf shirts are given to each player on A & B1 team (B2 gets shorts/dry fits). Jerseys are provided for the season to all teams. Junior A team jerseys are handled by the team (home games hanging in the dressing room/away games brought by the equipment manager-all are laundered by the team). B1/B2 players receive a home and an away jersey and are responsible for bringing to games and laundering them after each use (must be returned at the end of the season).
Please contact Deb Heard (email@example.com) with any questions and to be placed on any of the three Junior try out lists.
With the incoming new sets of jerseys we are making room by selling the older green and white ones.
$10 each and I'm taking requests for numbers/sizes - I will check the storage room once a week to confirm orders.
Email your requests to firstname.lastname@example.org. We accept e-transfers/cash only - thanks.
Congrats to Brad Romano our 2nd Vice President - awarded the Field Spirit Champion for Burnaby Devils Field at the 2021 Field Directorate Special Session held April 10.
Emily Lavin Player Sponsorship
In December 2020 Burnaby Minor Lacrosse lost one of our own when Emily Lavin passed away. Emily was an avid athlete in many sports but lacrosse was her favorite sport.
In Emily's honour, each year the BMLC will sponsor a player that would not otherwise be able to participate in lacrosse. Always remembered.....always missed.
