Minityke team and Tyke teams, – we don’t keep any scores or stats, but think we are undefeated so far this year for all three teams. Lots of fun, lots of up and comers, definitely some future stars in this group!

Novice – This team is something to watch, currently 8 and 0, and sitting in first place in Central Alberta, coaches Trevor Sigfusson and Troy Tisdale along with assistants Jason Klumpenhower and Kelly Fonda are doing an amazing job with this group of kids, hoping to put together a run for provincials.

Peewee – Quietly doing extremely well, this team is currently 7 and 2, and snuggled in second place in Central Alberta. Looking to finish the regular season in the top three, and hoping again to put a strong showing in at playoffs. Peewee’s finished third last year, thinking we can beat that if all things fall into place.

Bantam – The 4 and 2 Bantams, currently in fifth (with three games in hand) are a contender this year, once the short games are made up, I anticipate you will see them sniffing around the top three in the league as well … looking to peak for playoffs … this team potentially could do some damage.

This weekend all of our teams from Tyke up will be playing in the Tradition Lives tournament in Red Deer, a tournament which hosts about 80 teams from all over Western Canada, and is a great tournament with a ton of history!

Interesting note: Two of our players made Team Alberta Lacrosse! This is big news for us as we are such a small organization compared to the huge clubs in Edmonton and Calgary that have been consistently developing and producing top players for years.

Erin Bryenton, a second year bantam, is now a returning Team Alberta Lacrosse player as she played on the Bantam Women’s Alberta team last year. Erin will be going to Halifax, NS on July 23-28 for Bantam Women’s Nationals.

Callin Harris, a first year Peewee, is now a first year Team Alberta Peewee Men’s team member. Callin will be going to Whitby, ON on August 4-10 for the Peewee Men’s Nationals.

Congratulations to these players, as well as all of the players, coaches and parents that are involved, the effort is showing as we have floored some great talent again this year!

We’re still looking for teams to register for Sylvan Lake Rotary Club’s Golf Tournament on June 21, 2013 … some of the proceeds from this tournament will go directly to helping us become our own association next year!
