We need your help! Our very own, Victoria born/raised goaltender Aaron Bold and his beautiful wife Michelle are going through a difficult time as she continues to battle cancer and the effects this terrible disease is having on her.
Aaron is the current goaltender for the Vancouver Warriors and a former goaltender for the Victoria Sr. Shamrocks. As Aaron and Michelle continue their journey through this difficult time together, we are hoping our local lacrosse community will do what we do best and get behind them as a team and show our support.

The perfect season for our Bantam C team this year! After taking the Island and Playoff banner in June, they had to come from behind in the Provincials to overcome a tough (and BIG) West Kootenay’s team to take the Provincial banner. Amazing outcome!!

The Novice Selects had an amazing run at the Jack Crosby All Star tournament this past weekend. Finishing first overall in the round robin portion of the tournament with a near perfect 4-0-1 record. Following that up with a convincing win against a very competitive Coquitlam Adanacs team in the semi finals. They fell just short in the gold medal game against the JDF selects team. Very proud of this group of players, coaches and parents!
The annual novice Wind it Up tournament was held this past weekend. Both VELA teams (Red and Blue) made it through the round robin stage and into the semi finals. The Red team advanced to the Gold medal game against JDF 1 and the Blue team played for Bronze against Port Alberni. Both teams worked hard, but came up a bit short in their medal games. Thanks to all the teams that participated and see you next year!
