Young Langley lacrosse players help food bank

Group of eight to 11-year-olds collect supplies, cash

The Langley Thunder Lacrosse association wrapped up off-season box development training for Novice and Peewee players on Monday, Dec. 17, by gathering donations for the Langley Food Bank.

“It’s the first time we’ve had off-season skills development,” said organizer Lisa Gordon, and the first time the players have made donations to the food bank.

Players filled a huge bin with supplies and also collected close to $100 in cash.

In the new year, the Langley Minor Lacrosse Association will be running lacrosse training for new players, boys and girls born 2007 to 2014, at the Langley Events Centre Fieldhouse.

FUN Lacrosse is for players who have never registered with a minor lacrosse association.

The sessions will be led by Langley Minor Lacrosse coaches, and players are divided based on age.

Cost: $10 per player for two sessions, payable in advance. Sticks and balls will be provided. A helmet is required, a full cage is preferable.
