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 firstname.lastname@example.org.Thank you

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.

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 email@example.com.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 email@example.com 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
