Lacrosse Season is Here!
For many of in our Bomber's family, nothing signifies the end of a long cold winter like the return of box lacrosse! While many of our players have already been out for Field Lacrosse and out for our Box Clinics, Rep Tryouts is the real kick-off and they start in just one week!
To our volunteers who have been working very hard for the past few months; THANK YOU! We have a wonderful group of people on the board who have been working with the coaches to make sure everything is in place for a smooth start to the season. We're looking forward to sharing some of the exciting changes that are coming in the post below, so please read it carefully.
For all our new players and parents who have been to our Try Lacrosse clinics over past few months, welcome to the Bomber Family! We're glad you are here and hope you and your child have a ton of fun this year.
Finally, if you have any questions or concerns about the upcoming season, please feel free to reach out to our executive. Contact information is listed at the bottom of this email.

Box Lacrosse Registration
Box Lacrosse Registration is ongoing and will continue up until the start of the house league season (April 15). For those players who are interested in playing Rep this year, you must be fully registered prior to the start of tryouts on March 25th. Additionally, the Ontario Lacrosse Association mandates that any player not registered by March 17th will not be eligible for a release if we are unable to field a team at your age group or if you are not selected for a rep team.
House League players are encouraged to sign up as soon as possible to help us with planning. If you are unsure if you are registered for the season, please email: firstname.lastname@example.org

Field Lacrosse Program
The Field Lacrosse Program is off to a great start this year with fantastic turnouts at the pre-season clinics and tryouts. The next practice for all age groups is March 24th, 6:00pm at the Bradford Dome. As a reminder for the U13 players, we have two teams this year. Coaches will be using the next practice as a final tryout to select the teams. Everyone will have a spot.
Finally, we do have some space available on our teams. If you are interested in trying Field Lacrosse, please register using the link below or email: email@example.com for more information as some age groups are very limited.

House League Box Lacrosse
As we've previously announced, we have made a drastic shift in our House League program for our Paperweight Development (2015-2016), Paperweight (2013-2014) and our Tyke (2011-2012) divisions. These divisions will be following the Ontario Lacrosse Association 3-on-3 program which introduces skills with no contact, smaller nets and uses a very structured program that keeps the kids moving, learning and having fun. This will also allow our littlest kids to play games! For more information, have a look at this page from our friends at Barrie 360!
For our Novice and Peewee age groups, we're using key components of the Canadian Lacrosse Associations "Long-Term Athlete Development" program. This involves breaking skills down and building up using age and skill appropriate drills, coach development and teaching proper Respect in Sport to participants. Zero tolerance will be given for abuse of officials, obscenities or hits to the head. We want to keep things fun for everyone!
If you have any questions or requests about team assignments, siblings playing together or to volunteer for the season, please email: firstname.lastname@example.org
