Abbotsford Warriors returning to the court

Lacrosse season soon to get underway at local rinks, boxes

The Abbotsford Warriors return to action soon, and a three-day introduction to box lacrosse clinic kicks off the local team’s 2020 calendar.

The Warriors host the clinic on Jan. 9, Jan. 16 and Jan. 23 at the Ag-Rec Building starting at 6 p.m. There is a $30 fee to attend the one-hour sessions. Those without proper equipment will have needed items made available. Helmets, gloves and sticks are required to attend.

The sessions will provide users with the chance to learn skills and the fundamentals of the sport.

Registration for the box lacrosse season is now open, with discounts offered for everyone who signs up before Jan. 15. The Warriors offer teams in all age groups from tyke to midget, with different skill levels available in many of the age groups.

The box lacrosse season runs from March to mid-July, with games occurring at MSA Arena and practices at the Yale Secondary outside court box.

The Abbotsford Minor Lacrosse Association states on its website that its goal is to create a fun environment for all players.

“The Abbotsford Minor Lacrosse Association is committed to providing a fun, safe and positive experience for young athletes in a minor lacrosse setting. We will promote good citizenship, fair play, sportsmanship and respect recognizing that these experiences may have a profound effect on the future attitudes; moral and social development and community involvement of these young people. We will foster a positive team environment that helps build confidence; encourages player development and assists in their growth as individuals.”

“In so doing the Abbotsford Minor Lacrosse Association must lead by example and it is the obligation of all volunteers within the organization to set an example of honesty, integrity, fairness and trustworthiness for these young athletes.”

“The Abbotsford Minor Lacrosse Association objective is to work together to improve and enjoy a common passion: lacrosse. This is to be accomplished with effort, pride and commitment in spirit and deed, from the players, coaches, families and Executive Council of the Abbotsford Minor Lacrosse Association.”
