Lacrosse comes to Sooke

With  support from the Rotary Club of Sooke,  SEAPARC Leisure Complex will be offering an 11 week developmental Box Lacrosse program, Mondays and Wednesdays beginning on April 11th.

It will be aimed at introducing the sport of lacrosse to youth 6-12 years-of-age. A variety of sport skills will be taught through interactive and fun learning sessions, and game play, ending with a wind up tournament on June 23. Basic equipment will be available for participants who need it.

“Lacrosse is a fun, fast-paced game that anyone can learn to play. It’s a great alternative to hockey in the spring, and with help from the Rotary Club of Sooke, we are excited to provide the program at a reduced price to give everyone an opportunity to play,” said SEAPARC Program Services Manager Linda Finch.

There are many benefits to kids playing lacrosse. Not only do they increase their overall sports skills, they build endurance, develop good hand-eye coordination, get some great exercise, and of course have fun!

“The Rotary Club of Sooke supports many youth recreation programs in the community and have coordinated lacrosse clinics in the past, so we are excited to once again partner with SEAPARC on this endeavour”, stated Patrick Fallon, Rotary Club of Sooke member.
