Ownership required- President note
Warriors 2014 Team, Parents, Coach’s, and PlayersThe GELC held a meeting last season with the City of Edmonton; it seems that lacrosse teams have had a series of incidents which is now consuming a lot of time and energy to investigate for both the City of Edmonton and the GELC office.I would like to be pro-active this season and remind all Lacrosse family's regardless of your jersey colors to respect and help manage your surroundings at the Arena, as Clubs we are the stakeholder using these facilities; We have reviewed the policies and the GELC is now asking to have this sent to all Coaches and Managers throughout the GELC system, so we are all well aware of the issues and any future concerns may be dealt with quickly, without pointing fingers back at someone else.1.All dressing rooms should be locked upon your arrival. The scheduled time you may access your dressing room is ½ hour prior to booked floor time.2.The key is to be picked up from the attendant, once the dressing room is clean after your usage you must lock the door and return the key.3.If the dressing room is open it would be advantageous to take a picture of how you found it and report concerns to the attendant. Take another picture after you leave it. *No alcohol or smoking is allowed in the building - suspension will occur. **Also the contract which belongs to minor lacrosse may/will be terminated. ***Teams breaking the rules will be suspended from the city facilities for violations.As Coach’s - you need to take responsibility for your Lacrosse team and the dressing room.*All children under the age of 18 must have a responsible adult with them in the facility.Players and Parents**Sticks and balls cannot be played with inside the facility.If you are the first team or teams arriving for the day’s events you may not enter the playing surface prior to the booked time. If you do – your Club will be charged extra in 15 minute increments.Your Team only has a half hour after completion of your game to leave the dressing rooms please ensure you follow the allocated times as the next team or the attendants need in the room.There have been concerns with the floors safety if you have concerns please address it thru Donna at the GELC office and she will contact the city foreman in charge of the lacrosse facilities. **GELC Donna's 780-908-6539 cell Please be mindful that these rules should apply to all facilities and including soccer center's (coach’s helmets) that we use within the GELC area.Thank you for your support and I believe that all our 2014 Warriors Teams will continue to show Warrior pride and respect at all facilities.Regards,Rick Needham Warriors President

Say No to Bullies - Abuse of Officials
Warrior Coaches, Players and Parents,
Lacrosse is a game with strong emotional overtones. It involves almost constant physical contact between all of the participants and allows slashing motions and cross-checking as means of trying to get the ball from an opposing player. This generates a number of grey areas and shifting situations that make box lacrosse one of the most challenging games in the world to officiate.
Referees expect disagreements over calls and that many players and their supporters are not happy when a penalty goes against their interests their interest is in winning and a referee's call can be seen as a serious inconvenience to that purpose. Abuse is going to be controlled through the pro active culture that we create around the game of lacrosse in our province.
We need to take a stronger commitment to building a positive culture that does not give us permission to engage in any poor behaviour.
