Saanich Express Sessions (May 2021)

Posted by Saanich Express at May 6, 2021 2:01PM PDT

We will be holding a lacrosse session on Saturday May 8th at 3pm at Bullen Box. There will be no session on Sunday as this coming Sunday May 9th is Mother’s Day! Reminder to you boys… get something good for your Mother!

We will require a good amount of participants on Saturday to continue holding sessions later this month. If the numbers are low, we will discontinue holding lacrosse sessions until a definitive decision is made by viaSport/BCLA/PNWJLL regarding the 2021 PNWJLL lacrosse season.

See you Saturday at Bullen Box!
