Field Lacrosse

IMPORTANT ANNOUNCEMENT re: 2021 Field Lacrosse!

We wanted to let everyone know that we are cancelling the upcoming field lacrosse season. We were going to hold a short season that included a tourney with a number of Alberta field teams attending. With the large spike in the Delta variant of COVID-19 and the Alberta government's approach of no-testing or contract tracing, we did not feel comfortable holding the tournament and putting the athletes in a position where, 10 days before school, we take a chance in holding a super-spreader event.

Although we are disappointed we are also excited and focused on a revamping of Badgers Field Lacrosse during the fall of 2021 and the summer of 2022.

Any players that have sent payment will be sent a refund within 10 business days. We appreciate your understanding and encourage you to stay tuned for fall events.

What is the Cranbrook Badgers Field Lacrosse Club?

Club Objectives

  • To provide an experience based on fun, dedication, and personal responsibility.
  • Promoting, protecting and respecting the game of lacrosse, its history and its future.
  • The program is committed to working on character development and will foster all types of players to personally progress.
  • Through specifically selected tournaments/game opportunities, the program will develop the game intelligence needed to continually progress to the next level.
  • To develop and maintain a program that focuses on developing fundamentally sound players.
