Gearing up for the 2016 Season at Home and Away
Submitted by the Lady Blue Knights
Rosters are made and practices have begun. Our dedicated and hardworking Lady Blue Knight players are excited and gearing up for another successful season of Ontario Women’s Field Lacrosse. The Lady Blue Knights and clubs across Ontario compete May through August culminating in an always hard fought provincial championship.
However, the Lady Blue Knights are always looking for new experiences and challenges, so we are on the road once again this summer!
Our U19 and U15 Elite teams are off to Syracuse University to compete in the Nike Cup from June 27th to the 30th. The Nike Cup draws teams from across Canada, the United States and Europe and is more than just a tournament. It is a tremendous opportunity for our players to learn from and be seen by top NCAA coaches. Players will be led through skill sessions, practices and games. Our U15 Elite team will be looking to defend their title after winning the tournament last year.
A convoy of Blue Knight teams will be heading to Lansing, Michigan to take part in the Great Lakes Lacrosse Invitational from July 8th to the 10th. U19 Competitive 1 and 2, U15 Competitive, U13 and U11 Elite and Competitive teams are eager to again make the trip and compete against clubs from across the United States. Our U13 Elite and U19 Competitive teams are also looking to defend their titles after winning their divisions last year.
Teams are also traveling to us as the Lady Blue Knight club will be hosting three U15 teams from England on July 11th and 12th. Lady Blue Knight U15 teams will not only play against the visitors, but billet them in their homes and host a fun day to welcome them.
Each camp or tournament not only allows our players to learn from experienced coaches, play on exceptional fields and play games at a high level, it is also a time for team building, creating memories and a chance to make international lacrosse friendships.
