The goal of this program is to develop on-going lacrosse programs within those communities and create opportunities to build relationships between the Indigenous communities and the local community lacrosse associations. This program is open to all youth of Indigenous descent. We are introducing a free 10 week session Entry Level Lacrosse Program designed for Youth Ages 5-9. All equipment will be provided. Participants who complete the program will receive a t-shirt.
As part of the program, I-SPARC and the BCLA will track the SPIRIT Program participants, and those who transition to the local minor lacrosse association as well as those who participate in high performance programs (i.e., Team BC – NAIG and other Provincial programs).
Open to all Indigenous youth (First Nations, Inuit, Métis) ages 5-9
