Minoru Park, Granville Avenue, Richmond, BC, Canada Event Website

Not only is 2017 Canada’s 150th Birthday is also marks the 150th Anniversary of Lacrosse.

There will be exhibition booths showing stringing of lacrosse sticks, history of lacrosse in Richmond highlighting Richmond players with interesting lacrosse careers and lacrosse memorabilia.

“Try Lacrosse” sessions will be offered at Minoru turf, Minoru arena and Brighouse lacrosse box where youth of all ages can participate to try the two variations of the sport in a summer camp format over 4 days. The program will feature 1.5 hours of field lacrosse, lunch break, 1.5 hours of box lacrosse and video presentations of game highlights, history of lacrosse and tour of lacrosse exhibits and demonstration of stringing of heads. Sessions will run concurrently alternating field and box lacrosse instruction by certified lacrosse coaches.

As well there will be demonstration Box Lacrosse and Field Lacrosse games played by alumni and current Richmond players to expose Richmond residents to different forms of the sport.

Our hope with the exhibition and demonstration games is to use the past to inspire people about lacrosse today and educate Richmond residents on the impact that Canada has had on the sport of lacrosse.
