Calgary Winter Lacrosse is a registered non-profit organization that has been in operation since 2002 and has been providing young athletes with the training they need to grow. Our goal has always been for minor lacrosse players to be able to reach their full potential by providing an opportunity to practice all year round. It is a fun and healthy environment for goalies and runners alike.
The Calgary Winter Lacrosse is a program designed to teach and improve basic lacrosse skills. It is also a program in which existing players can develop their skills to be able to play at higher levels. All levels of players are welcome, and it is perfect for the beginner player. We are fortunate to have the knowledge and expertise of the Jr. B Tier 1 Mountaineers to mentor and guide the younger players.
Calgary Winter Lacrosse strives to help players maintain their skills during the off-season and supports the love of Canada’s National Sport (Lacrosse was designated as Canada’s National sport in 1859 by Parliament).
Our program has been very successful over the years and we have taken on the task of trying to get a dry floor facility built for our group and others. A volunteer Board of Directors governs the CWLL. The Board is a Policy Governance Board and it consists of between five and seven directors, not including the Past President who is a non-voting member of the Board.
I) To organize, develop, train and promote amateur athletics;
II) To improve and maintain the moral, intellectual, physical and social qualities of the players of the sporting community;
III) To stimulate good citizenship, good fellowship and good sportsmanship;
IV) To provide for the recreation of the members and to promote and afford opportunity for friendly and social activities;
V) Maintain lacrosse as part of Canada’s heritage, promote its growth and make it relevant in our community.
As well as providing a facility where Calgary athletics can be played, it will also enhance development opportunities for kids to develop their athletic skills with the potential to move up through the ranks to a higher level and
maybe even professional player status.
