End of season Mini-Tyke and Tyke Festival celebrated in the weekend

The Stettler Thunder lacrosse families and community celebrated the end of season with mini-tyke and tyke festivals.

The Stettler Thunder lacrosse families and community celebrated the end of season with mini-tyke and tyke festivals at both of the arenas in the Stettler Rec Centre. It ran all weekend with tykes playing on Saturday and mini-tykes playing on Sunday.

The festivals had a raffle table and 50/50, proceeds from which will go to the Stettler Minor League Association (SMLA).

The tykes played a 5 on 5 plus a goalie on full floor with the regular lacrosse ball. Games were of one hour, consisting of 30 minutes of skill development first, followed by 2 x 12 minute periods of game play. Each team played two games. Stettler Tyke 1 played Sylvan Lake Tyke 1 in their first game, and Sylvan Lake Tyke 3 in their second.

Mini-tykes were made into 4 groups on the floor and the floor was separated in half. There were four 15-minute sessions alternating skills, drills and scrimmage with the other team on the floor. Mini-tykes also played two games. Stettler Mini Tyke 1 played Sylvan Lake Mini Tyke 1 in their first and Lacoka Locos Mini Tyke 2 in their next game.
