The BC Lacrosse Association is looking for zone coaches for both Box Lacrosse and Field Lacrosse.  The application is now up on the BCLA website https://bcla.imeetcentral.com/bcla/doc/WzIsNDMwNTkxMTBd/.  Coaches, leading up to the Games, will need to be Trained at Competitive Introduction - Level 2.  The deadline to apply is 11 January 2018.


Stealth-BCLA "Lacrosse on the Move" 50-50

The BC Lacrosse Association is preparing for the 2017-18 Stealth-BCLA "Lacrosse on the Move" 50-50 sales during the Vancouver Stealth home games.  All net proceeds (50% of gross sales) go lacrosse teams traveling to Minor Box Provincials, Youth Field Provincials, and Team BC Athletes who face financial barriers to travel to National Championships and/or for training purposes preparing for National Championships.  For the past three years, approximately $116,000 has been dispersed across the province for these purposes.  It is our hope to do even more in 2017-18!

The BCLA is looking for 20 keen, assertive, hard-working 50-50 volunteer sellers who are 19 years of age or older.  50-50 volunteers will have free admittance into the games (sellers are done at the end of half time so you'd be able to watch the rest of the game) and a little cash for a snack.  Best of all, by volunteering, you'll be supporting amateur lacrosse athletes from across the Province of BC!

If you are interested in helping, please send an e-mail to rochelle@bclacrosse.com to let the BCLA know which games you're willing to help.  Click here for the complete Vancouver Stealth 2017-2018 Home Game Schedule.
