To Our Members:
We’d like to give you an update on the BCLA’s Return to Lacrosse activities, and how our club is working towards the return of lacrosse in our community.
Last week, the BCLA published its guidelines (read here: bclacrosse.com/return-to-lacrosse.php). It gives us a better idea of what will and won’t be permitted, such as player-to-instructor ratios, as well as protocols around personal protective equipment (PPE).
We are now focused on providing skill-based development sessions to our members, and are working with the District of Mission to make that happen. The District has elected to keep facilities such as the Leisure Centre arena and the Mission Sports Park turf field until a return-to-play program is approved.
In the meantime, we continue to conduct weekly meetings with both the Executive and other associations in the Lower Mainland. Many associations, including ours, are postponing registration for field lacrosse until later in the summer. We are working with partners to ensure that we can launch lacrosse activities as soon as these facilities are reopened.
We are also continuing fundraising efforts. We are happy to announce two fundraisers as discussed and approved by our Executive.
Krispy Kreme Donut Fundraiser. We will be selling 500 boxes of donuts in order to help recoup some of the costs already lost due to the cancellation of the box lacrosse season. There are also pre-sales, and we encourage members to reach out to Jamie Hooper (firstname.lastname@example.org) or Shanda Collins (email@example.com). This will take place on Saturday, July 4th at the Prospera Credit Union at the bottom of the Cedar Valley connector.
We also have an ongoing account at Abbotsford Regional Recycling Depot. You can take your bottles and donate the money to our Mission Lacrosse Club account. The depot is located at 750 Riverside Road, Abbotsford.
We welcome any and all volunteers looking to lend a hand at the Krispy Kreme fundraiser. We’re also looking for your input and ideas for future fundraisers, as well as skill development sessions.
We hope everyone is staying active with a lacrosse stick in their hands this summer. This has been a trying time, but we can count on each other to help pull us through the COVID-19 pandemic.
We are now accepting applications for coaches for the 2020 box season!
