New 2017-2018 U15 BC Field Lacrosse Regional Teams and Travel Program
The BCLA Field Directorate is once again offering the U15 BC Field Lacrosse Regional Teams and Travel Program to assemble and develop Men’s Field U15 teams (athletes born 2002 and 2003) and Women’s Field U15 teams (athletes born (2002 – 2004) within the Pacific Coast Field Lacrosse League (PCFLL).
In addition to travel opportunities that athletes are offered by their own local field lacrosse association programs, the purpose of this program is to expose U15 players who wish to travel to tournaments who may not have this opportunity.
As this is our second year, we want to select tournaments for the correct skill level for the Regional teams, the PCFLL, along with the Management Committee for this program, will select the tournament destination by December 1, 2017. Click here for the program information sheet.

Stealth-BCLA "Lacrosse on the Move" 50-50
The BC Lacrosse Association is preparing for the 2017-18 Stealth-BCLA "Lacrosse on the Move" 50-50 sales during the Vancouver Stealth home games. All net proceeds (50% of gross sales) go lacrosse teams traveling to Minor Box Provincials, Youth Field Provincials, and Team BC Athletes who face financial barriers to travel to National Championships and/or for training purposes preparing for National Championships. For the past three years, approximately $116,000 has been dispersed across the province for these purposes. It is our hope to do even more in 2017-18!
The BCLA is looking for 20 keen, assertive, hard-working 50-50 volunteer sellers who are 19 years of age or older. 50-50 volunteers will have free admittance into the games (sellers are done at the end of half time so you'd be able to watch the rest of the game) and a little cash for a snack. Best of all, by volunteering, you'll be supporting amateur lacrosse athletes from across the Province of BC!
If you are interested in helping, please send an e-mail to firstname.lastname@example.org to let the BCLA know which games you're willing to help. Click here for the complete Vancouver Stealth 2017-2018 Home Game Schedule.
