All players must fill out a Senior Practice form before being allowed on the floor. Form attached or go to https://bcla.imeetcentral.com/bcla/media/Forms/Senior%20Box/SeniorPracticeForm1.pdf

Learn from current Junior Shamrock coaching staff and Shamrock players. On floor evaluations, high tempo technical drills and a lot of on floor experience with high calibre players and coaching staff. This is an excellent opportunity to get out (get the rust off) on the box lacrosse floor, assess your own skills and abilities, and learn how you can grow and develop. This will help prepare you for upcoming camps and team tryouts in 2018 for all levels of lacrosse on Vancouver Island.

Hi Everyone:

We need your help! We want the BC Lacrosse Association to have the most people pledge to support the Province of BC’s Erase Bullying in Sport campaign!

Please visit this website www.viasport.ca/erasebullying and “TAKE THE PLEDGE”, and ask your family, friends, members, etc. – whoever you know – to take the pledge along with you! It takes less than a minute to do.

The #ERASEbullying in Sport campaign officially launched 23 January and will run for the month leading up to Pink Shirt Day on February 22, 2017.

Here’s what the Pledge says:

We, the Province of British Columbia and B.C. sport leaders, believe that: Sport can provide British Columbians of all ages, abilities and backgrounds with life-long opportunities to enjoy physical, social and emotional health benefits.

A sport environment that is positive, respectful, engaging and accessible for all participants encourages individuals to join and stay in sport throughout their lives. Conversely, a sport environment in which participants are exposed to negative experiences, such as bullying, can be harmful and cause individuals to quit sport.

Bullying is unwelcome or aggressive behaviour that involves a real or perceived power imbalance and can take many forms including physical, verbal, emotional or other types of intimidating or humiliating behaviours. The behaviour is often repeated and can occur on or away from the playing field, court or arena. Children, youth and adults can all be vulnerable to experiences of bullying.

We will: Through the signing of this document, demonstrate our commitment to fostering a positive sport environment with mechanisms in place to effectively prevent and address bullying in sport.

Declaration of Commitment: We call on all those involved in sport – participants, athletes, coaches, parents, caregivers, officials, organizations, partners, volunteers and others – to join us in this commitment and help ensure a safe, welcoming and positive sport culture and environment for all British Columbians of every background, gender, sexual orientation, culture, ethnicity, age, ability and aspiration.

Regards,
Rochelle Winterton
