A huge shoutout to all the players who came out to learn more about the game of lacrosse on Tuesday night, as well as the coaches, volunteers, and parents. It was a massive success with more than 40 Mini-Tyke, Tyke and first-year Novice players coming out to play.

The Mission Lacrosse Club is providing an opportunity for those up and coming laxers to get their sticks out and have a fun night all at the same time.
Starting this Tuesday, Jan. 23 and for an additional 8 weeks, the MLC is offering Gym Nights to the following age groups:
6 – 7:00 p.m. sessions
- Mini-Tyke (2012/13 birth date)
7 – 8:00 p.m. sessions

- First-year Novice (2009 birth date)
We are offering 8 free sessions at the Community Gym at Heritage Park Middle School from 6:00 – 8:00 p.m. No equipment is needed – we will provide the sticks and balls – just bring a good attitude!
Congratulations to Matthew Abbott, Jude McAdie and Josh Bramley for being selected in the 2018 BCJALL Midget Draft at the Langley Events Centre on Jan. 6.
The Langley Thunder got the ball rolling, drafting Matt near the top of the third round with the No. 18 pick. They would later pick up Josh at the top of the fifth round with the No. 34 selection. Both Matt and Josh spent some time with Maple Ridge in Intermediate A & B, and Matt also played some games with the Coquitlam Adanacs. The pair will join a large contingent of former Mission Sasquatch players such as Dryden Recsky and Imat Grewal.
Sandwiched in between those two was Jude, who was picked up by the Port Coquitlam Saints. Jude developed into a regular on the Poco Inter A bench towards the end of last season, giving the black and yellow reliable player and a boost as a strong call-up defender.
We will be sure to update you on how these players and other graduating midgets do as the junior structure transitions to a five-year program.
