New  Wall Ball Contest

Surrey Lacrosse wants to promote our kids to practice on their own in order to reach their lacrosse goals.  We are launching a Wall Ball Contest as a warm up to the 2019 box lacrosse season!  The main goal of this contest is to get the players practicing on their own and improving their skills.  Who will be the Wall Ball Champion??  Prizes include club seats to 2 NLL Vancouver Warriors games at Rogers Arena and gift certificates to the sporting goods store of your choice.

Surrey RebelsNew  Junior B Lacrosse Returning to Surrey!

Surrey Lacrosse is pleased to announce that we will be starting a Junior B2 team to be entered in the 2019 season.

Players living in the Surrey Rebels/Semiahmoo Rock catchment (or any other area without a B2 team) born from 1998 to 2002 will be eligible to play.

Our home games will be held at Cloverdale Arena on Friday nights with a practice to be held one night per week also at Cloverdale (more practice time could be announced).  We are hoping to have a full roster of 25 players (including 2 goalies).

For anyone not familiar with the Junior Program, it works differently than minor.  Any junior-aged player from the Surrey/Semiahmoo catchment is eligible to try out for any Junior A or Junior B1 Team.  If you do not make the team you are hoping to play for and want to play B2, then you will have to play in Surrey - if we have the room.  With tryouts for Junior A and B1 teams starting soon, eligible players do not have to sign up for Surrey but please advise us if you are interested and intend to play here if you do not make a stronger team.  If you have no intention to play A or B1 and just want to play B2, you can register now or hold off until after evaluations have finished.  If you do sign up now and do not make the team you will receive a full refund.

There are two coaches in place, both former Junior Rebels, Braden Wilkens and Trent Evans.  We would like a committed group of 25 and will select players who want to play full time over non committed players.

Click here to register.

New  Evaluation/Tryout Dates

Evaluations/Tryouts will be for athletes hoping to make A and B level teams in divisions Novice, Peewee, Bantam and Midget.  If players elect to not tryout, they will be automatically placed on a C or lowest level team we carry for their division.

To participate in Evaluation/Tryouts, there is an additional $30 fee to cover the costs of the rented floor time as well as pay for unbiased evaluators and referees for scrimmages.  In order to keep parents and players aware, we can tell you that evaluations/tryouts will be held in the first two weeks of March.  We wish to have team placement completed prior to Spring Break.  While the exact dates and times are not yet set, we will email/post when we have solidified specific dates.

Due to Surrey not having any indoor facility to run these evaluations, we rely upon neighbouring cities for their facilities.  Hoping for the weather to be good for our tryouts has not faired well in the past which is why we rent indoor space for these events.  The delay in knowing dates comes as these cities help their own teams first.  We hope you understand and thank you for your patience.
