Minor lacrosse association continues to grow
The Cranbrook Minor Lacrosse Association is beginning a new season, with their highest-ever numbers at 107 players, tripling from when they started three years ago.
That creates one team of tykes, one team of novice, two pee wee squads and a bantam and midget team. There is also plans to create an adult drop-in night on Tuesdays.
The association was recently represented by three players who went to Team Interior tryouts—the first step in making it to the Team B.C. roster—but faced some tough competition for roster spots.
The minor teams, known as the Outlaws, have already been hard at practice for the last couple of weeks, and officially began their season in the Southern Alberta Lacrosse Association last weekend.
It was a sweep for the Outlaws, as the Midgets won their only game, while the novices and one pee wee team collected two victories. The bantams couldn't make it to Lethbridge due to inclement weather, while the other pee wee team wasn't scheduled to play.
Russ Sheppard, a local lacrosse coach, has signed on to coach the Kootenay zone team for the upcoming B.C. Summer Games, with plenty of Outlaws' players interested in vying for roster spots.
