St. Albert Rams Fall/Winter Drop-In
The St. Albert Rams will be hosting a Fall/Winter Drop-in again this year, at Servus Place, for minor lacrosse aged players and those wishing to try our great sport. We again have the privilege of Todd Lorenz conducting our Drop-in sessions. Todd is an inductee into the Canadian Lacrosse Hall of Fame and is a three time Mann Cup Champion over a13 year Senior A career acquiring 857 points in 434 games. He has been an NLL Referee, NLL Offensive Coach with the Edmonton Rush, and continues to coach Junior A and Senior B lacrosse in St Albert. Most recently he was part of the St Albert Senior B Miners’ coaching staff winning the 2016 President’s Cup. Todd has been a long time supporter of the minor lacrosse in the Edmonton area conducting these types of sessions for our players as well as mentorship sessions for our coaches.
This is a great opportunity for our young players to maintain their skills over the offseason.
The first session is 17 October and they will run every Monday night until 27 February with the exception of 31 October, 26 December, 2 January, and 20 February. We will be running the following divisions and timings:
6:00 to 700PM – Mini-Tyke and Tyke (Born in 2008, 2009, 2010, 2011, and 2012)
7:00 to 8:00PM – Novice and PeeWee (Born in 2004, 2005, 2006 and 2007)
8:00 to 9:00PM – Bantam and Midget (Born in 2000, 2001, 2002, and 2003)
These sessions are for boys and girls and are open to previous players, current players, and new/future players.
The cost of each session will be $10.00 per player. Please note, these drop-in sessions are sanctioned by the ALA and therefore any new players will have to complete a registration and waiver form.
This is a great option for players that want to keep their sticks in their hands over the winter when they can attend, but possibly could not commit to the Vimy or Apex Winter Camps due to conflicts with other winter activities. It is also a great opportunity for those curious about the game to come try it before the next season begins.

Season Ending Thank Yous, Equipment/Jersey Return, & Warriors' Casino
With ALA Provincials now in the books, and the minor box season officially over for the GELC, the Executive of the South Edmonton Warriors Lacrosse Club would like to extend thanks and gratitude to all of those parents/guardians/fans that volunteered their time in some manner to help make your player's season a successful one. Whether it was as a Coach, Manager, Jersey Parent, or you worked in the penalty box for a game or two, we would not be able to function as a club with your support and selfless donation of your time. It is greatly appreciated.
We would like to wish all of our players that are continuing to play, whether it is for Team Alberta (box or field) or playing field this summer with the Edmonton Razorbacks, a safe enjoyable summer where you can continue to not only develop your skills as a player, but your passion for the game.
This year, rather than make the equipment/jersey drop off on a specific date or time, we are asking that you drop off any goalie equipment or jerseys that you may have at The Grind (8812 - 51 Avenue during their regular hours) at your earliest convenience. You will be asked to sign an equipment/jersey form once the equipment/jerseys are inspected. Please note that the jerseys should be washed prior to returning them, and it would be greatly appreciated if they could be sorted in numerical order. As it pertains to goalie equipment, for sanitary reasons, it is required that the equipment be cleaned prior to returning it. The Grind has offered us a 50% discount on equipment cleaning making the cost only $20.00. This can be paid when the equipment is dropped off. Please note that all issued goalie equipment must be returned so we can properly inventory what we have so we can make accurate decisions on what equipment we need to purchase for the following season. We need to make said order by the end of August to ensure delivery for the 2017 season. For any Warriors goalies that may be participating in camps over the summer, fall or winter, we can ensure that you have gear for your camps with enough notice provided to email@example.com and/or firstname.lastname@example.org.
Lastly, we have been allocated a casino by the ALGC for the 7th and 8th of October (as per previous emails). If you are interested in volunteering for the casino, please contact our volunteer coordinator at email@example.com. Spots were grabbed quickly however openings sometimes come available as people's availability change.

Warriors Field Explained
We have been receiving a few question in regards to the field program we are offering and would like to provide some more details of it to the Warriors membership.The initial goal of the program is to introduce the game, and key fundamentals, of the sport of field lacrosse to interested Warriors members. Our program is not competing with the Edmonton Razorbacks nor the Apex Lacrosse Club. In fact we would encourage our players to continue to foster their passion for the field game by playing with the Razorbacks for the field season in July and August, as well pushing themselves to try out for an Apex Lacrosse Club Travel Team.The program will run on Sundays, beginning on May 8th and ending on June 19th, excluding May 22nd. We are still confirming field allocations with the City and are confident on having those booked by the end of the week. Very few, if any, GELC times will conflict with this schedule. Other tournaments, if your box team commits to them, will probably conflict.The fee includes a Warrior Warriors field pinnie, insurance, equipment, coaching, and the field rental. We are hoping to to have each one of the sessions on one of the City's artificial turf fields that are well maintained and free of garbage and debris in hopes of having the safest playing environment for our players. If we are unable to secure turf fields for all of the sessions, we will be looking at how we can add value in other ways or by providing a small refund.As it pertains to the coaching, running the program will be Erik Turner. Erik began his lacrosse career at 12 years old playing box locally for the St. Albert Rams. He was introduced to field lacrosse in the 9th grade through the Edmonton Razorbacks Program. He went on to play NCAA Division 1 field lacrosse at Cornell University as an attackman/midfielder. During his time with the Big Red the team won 3 Ivy League titles, made 3 NCAA Tournament appearances, and one Final Four appearance. He not only brings a wealth of knowledge about the game, but a passion for it as well. He is very excited for the opportunity to work on this new Warriors initiative and to help develop the next group of Alberta lacrosse players to reach their desired level of play.All of those that register for the field program prior to Thursday, April 14th at 11:59:59pm will be entered into a draw for a Cascade helmet with a Warriors decal set on it. The draws for these will take place at the Warriors Welcome Night on Friday, April 15th at the St. Basil's Cultural Center.Warriors' players will have until end of day Wednesday, April 20th for exclusive registration for the program. If the group size of a division requires it, we will then extend an invitation to other select GELC member clubs in order to meet our minimum size requirement. Once we reach the maximum group size, there will be no more registrations permitted regardless of club affiliation and we will not remove other GELC member club's players for Warrior players, so please ... if you are interested in having your player participate, please register prior to April 20th. Registration will end on Saturday, April 30 at 11:59:59pm.If you have any further questions that were not answered here, please email email@example.com.Thank you

Warriors Welcome Night Reminder & Warriors Online Store
Our first Warriors Welcome Night is being held on Friday, April 15th at the St. Basils Cultural Center (10819 - 71st Avenue). The evening program will begin at 6:30pm with the pizza dinner to follow shortly after that. There will be numerous draw prizes throughout the evening, which include:
- 2 SportScreens (https://ca.thesportscreen.com/) with lacrosse specific targets
- 1 free registration, per age group, for the 2017 season

The team with the most players there (percentage based on roster size) will win a special prize as well, so make sure as many of your player's teammates are there as possible for the chance at this prize.
The cost of of the night is $6.00 per player and registration is done through our SportzSoft system. The deadline to register is 11:59:59pm on Tuesday, April 12th. If a parent/guardian or sibling is interested in having some pizza for dinner, guest tickets are available as well for only $6.00. We have no floor times booked that night, so unless your team is in a tournament somewhere it would be great to have as many Warrior players there as possible.
Any players from other clubs that are playing with the Warriors for the 2016 season are welcome to attend, and any Warrior player that has been released to another club for the season, is still welcome to attend.
New for the 2016 season is an online store set up through gologo.ca. By clicking the link here: www.gologowear.com and clicking on the custom stores link and logging in (login: Warriors ... password: 2016), you will be taken to the Warriors online store which consists of t-shirts, hoodies, and other apparel items with the Warriors logo on them. You can purchase any item on the site and can even add some personal touches to the pieces, like names or numbers, if you so choose. When selecting your product(s) you will be required to select your team. All orders will arrive at the same time and will be boxed by team. Your order will be bagged individually within that team’s box. All orders will be then be available to be picked up by the Coach/Assistant Coach/Manager of each respective team from the Warriors office when the orders are received.
Please note the order deadline of Sunday, April 17th. We need to have this tight deadline to ensure that we will receive the product by the middle of May so you can wear your Warriors swag with pride during the rest of the box season.

Field Lacrosse Registration Now Open
Registration is now open for the first ever South Edmonton Warriors Field Lacrosse Program. The program will run from Sunday, May 8th to Sunday, June 19th and will be run by Division 1 Attackman, and Cornell Alumni, Erik Turner.There will a 20 player minimum registration requirement for a division to run as well as 30 player maximum, so if you are interested, please register early to ensure your player(s) secure their spot. We will be supporting a waiting list once the first 30 paid registrations are received, and if the waiting list for an age division exceeds 20 registrants, we will then offer a second group splitting the total registered players into two groups.The goal of this program is to expose more Warriors players to the great game of field lacrosse by providing those players the best field specific coaching by some of our areas most experienced field players in a group size where it is possible for the coach(es) to develop not only our players' abilities, but also their knowledge of the game.We are still working out field allocations with the City and awaiting responses from other clubs for potential scrimmage opportunities. As those pieces of the puzzle fall into place, we will be communicating them to you. Unless you are a goalie, the equipment for field lacrosse is no different then that required for box. Although, there are merits to wearing a field lacrosse helmet versus a box lacrosse helmet, a field lacrosse helmet is not required.If you have any field lacrosse related questions, please email firstname.lastname@example.org.Thank you

Warriors Field Program/Field Coaching Clinics
The South Edmonton Warriors Lacrosse Club is excited to announce that we will be starting a field lacrosse program for the 2016 season. We have submitted our application for membership into the newly formed Alberta Field Lacrosse Association, and we are just waiting for the notice of acceptance.The exact details of the program have not yet been finalized as we are busy focusing on the upcoming box lacrosse season. Once we get evaluations going, the Executive will discuss the details of the field lacrosse program and announce it to the membership as soon as we have everything solidified. As over 60% of those who have registered for the 2016 box season so far said that they were interested in a Warriors field program, we are excited for this next chapter in the Warriors Club history as a leader when it comes to providing our members the best lacrosse experience in the Edmonton area.There will be a field specific Community Development and Competitive Introduction clinic being hosted by the Red Deer Orangemen in Penhold, AB on the weekend of February 20th and 21st. You can register for the clinic at nccp.lacrosse.ca. If you choose to register, please also inform President Kevin Kohut at firstname.lastname@example.org that you will be attending. The clinic will cost $100.00 per participant and will include the coaching book and code if so required. Any Warriors coach who chooses to attend, and coaches this field season, will be reimbursed for their clinic fees as part of our mandate to ensure that our coaches are properly trained. You will be issued receipts that can then be submitted for reimbursement.This will by no means be the only field coaching clinic opportunity, however the timing of this clinic is great as it will not be during the busy box season when free time to attend a clinic seems to be at a minimum.Thank you
