Vancouver Minor Lacrosse Association

Field Lacrosse Specific Information

29 August 2019

For the 2019 year, Vancouver and Richmond Lacrosse associations will run a combined program, meaning teams will be formed by players from Richmond and Vancouver. What this means to players and parents is that practices and games will sometimes be held in Richmond and sometimes in Vancouver.

For those new to the sport of field lacrosse - check out this page which has a whole pile of information about field lacrosse and for any history buffs - this page. You will need protective gear (listed here and also in the graphic below) and a lacrosse stick. We will also have sessions in September where you can come and "try lacrosse" where we will provide equipment -- watch our website and social media for those dates.

While we are still working out the fine details, here's what we know:

The U7 and U9 seasons are September to December with an optional component played in January-early February. Generally one game and one practice a week. U 11 and above play September to December, take a 4 or 5 week break, then play January-February with provincials following in March.

U7 and U9:

  • Home games will likely be at Hillcrest Sunday 3-4:30 (TBC). We would play teams throughout the lower mainland but the league organizes the schedule to minimize travel (maybe the occasional vs. Mission/Chilliwack game, but not all the time)
  • practices: 1 hour Fridays sometime between 4:30 and 6:00 at South Memorial Field (Vancouver)
  • games start the weekend of Sept 14/15 - Sunday (could be home or away)
  • *** if we run into a situation where we do not have enough kids to field a team in U7 or U9, then kids will still be able to play in a neighbouring city -- if this happens we will provide more info directly to any affected.

U11:

  • Home games will likely be at Vancouver Technical School. We would play teams throughout the lower mainland.
  • practices: 1.5 hours Tuesday @ Richmond High School and Thursday @ Minoru Field #2 - 6:00 to 7:30pm
  • games start the weekend of Sept 14/15 - Home games are Saturday 6pm @ Van Tech and Away games are Sunday.

U13:

  • Home games will likely be at Vancouver Technical School. We would play teams throughout the lower mainland.
  • practices - 1.5 hours Tuesday 6:00-7:30pm Richmond High School and Friday 4:30 - 6:00pm South Memorial Field.
  • games start the weekend of Sept 14/15 - Home games are Saturday @ Van Tech and Away games are Sunday.
