Field lacrosse trial for women

The fast-paced sport of women’s version of field lacrosse is growing across North America and it’s played here in Victoria. To welcome new members, the Victoria Women’s Field Lacrosse association is offering two free clinics for newbies to the sport.

Women’s lacrosse is a non-contact, finesse game, using only a stick and mouth guard as gear. The season runs April to July and features both youth and adult divisions.

VWFL plays teams from across the Island, mainland, Alberta and northwestern U.S.A.

Clinics are Sunday, Feb. 13, and Sunday, March 13, in the field house at Pearkes Recreation Centre.

Clinics run for one hour each. Ages 8-10 are first, at 10 a.m., ages 11-14 at 11:15 a.m., ages 15-18 at 12:30 p.m., and women aged 19-and-over at 1:45 p.m.

No equipment is necessary.
