Congrats to our 2 VELA Peewee boys Jordan Alexander and Cadel Gourlay who were recently selected to Team BC.
Making this team is a major accomplishment with a 2 stage selection process ending with a full 3 days training camp attended by over 80 of the top Peewee players in the province. This year the Peewee National are to be held Aug 20-24th in Coquitlam BC. Great work boys!
Our players played outstanding lacrosse going 4-0-1 in the tournament and facing some of the top teams on the Island. After a close semi final win over a very strong Saanich team our boys came out flying vs a strong JDF team building up a big lead and hanging on to claim the Gold. This team has come a long way since the start of the year with full credit to the team for working hard on the fundamentals and Coach Nelson for his tireless efforts.
The annual Father’s Day Jamboree at Peninsula was a great time for the Mini-tykes. With a very small team the kids played hard and sweat a lot, and got better with each game! Thanks Peninsula Warriors for a great torunament.
The Peewee A2 team went 2 and 1 in round robin play at the Captain Cook and then beat Nanaimo in the semi finals to advance to the gold medal game on Sunday. It was a highly contested final against rival Saanich with a one goal game that came down to the buzzer. Great work team – now off to playoffs!
The Bantan B team went undefeated in the New Westminister Hyack tournament. They played teams from around the province and ended up playing JdF in the finals. They overcame many hardships including beating JdF a team they had lost to in previous league and tournament play. An outstanding weekend for VELA Bantams!
