The fee has been reduced to $57.00 to reflect the new schedule. Learn the fundamentals of Canada’s oldest sport and get fit doing it. Your child will be learning in a controlled environment from a certified coach and longtime player. Players will need a helmet with face cage (a hockey or lacrosse helmet is preferred), padded gloves (hockey style or lacrosse designated), a lacrosse stick (some will be provided & they are available at Canadian Tire).
