Evaluations for Novice and up start in March followed by preseason practices at the end of March and early April. The season officially kicks off mid-late April and goes until the end of June, Novice and up have city playoffs and provincials at the beginning of July.

What days do they play?

For Mini Tyke & Tyke, they only play their games and practices on the weekends. Novice and up will play around twice a week sometime between Monday and Thursday. Weekends are usually only played if teams book tournaments.

Where do they play?

Since we have such a large area we have 4 home arenas, 2 in Airdrie at Genesis and Plainsmen, 1 in Crossfield at Pete Knight Arena and 1 in Cochrane at Spray Lakes Sawmill. All HOME games and practices will be played out of these arenas. Novice and up play their AWAY games in Calgary and surrounding area.

Is there contact?

Mini Tyke & Tyke use "Equal Pressure", Novice and up is full contact.

Can I use my kids hockey equipment?

Absolutely, however we do recommend lacrosse arm guards as they cover more surface. You want the bottom of the shoulder pad to touch the top of the arm guard and the bottom of the arm guard to touch the top of the glove. Lacrosse gloves are also better as they offer more mobility.

Is my kid to old to start playing lacrosse?

Absolutely not! We have kids starting lacrosse at all ages even Midget.
