If you have an old lacrosse stick gathering dust in the attic and want to shake it off, or want to give Canada’s national summer sport a first try, keep reading.

The Cowichan Rec Lacrosse League is looking for new and experienced players to join its ranks this spring and summer.

Now entering its 10th season, the box lacrosse league has included over the years players of every level, from fresh rookies to veterans of the senior A and B levels.

The league is aimed at players ages 18 and up, but younger players with midget or intermediate experience are welcome.

Games are played at the Island Savings Centre arena. Most matches take place on Wednesday evenings, with some on Mondays and Saturdays as well. The league runs from late April until mid-July.

Contact is limited. Required equipment includes a stick, helmet with facemask, gloves and slash guards.

Fees are $125 before the first game on April 25 or $150 after that, or $10 per game on a drop-in basis.

Free drop-in scrimmages for interested players will be held at the Island Savings Centre gym on Wednesday, April 13 and Wednesday, April 20, both at 8 p.m.

For more information, contact Kevin at 250-252-0246 or email cowichanreclacrosse@hotmail.ca
