PeeWee Coach Jordan Smyth supervised players as they took part in getting ready for the upcoming Stettler Thunder lacrosse season.

Stettler Thunder prepare for upcoming lacrosse season

The season will begin on April 8 with an eye-opener tournament in Red Deer.

The Stettler Minor Lacrosse Association season is set to begin in April, with the peewee and bantam boys beginning their preparations with practice sessions at the Wm. E. Hay gym on Thursday, March 23.

Stettler Thunder players aged 11 to 14 took part in the practice together where they worked on a variety of gameplay skills.

The teams are getting ready for the season with a series of practices throughout March.

“Our first game of the season will be on Saturday, April 8 in our eye-opener tournament hosted by Red Deer,” said PeeWee Coach Jordan Smyth. “The biggest thing we’re looking for is to be a top contender in this year’s play. That doesn’t mean winning games but striving to win and pushing ourselves.”

The Stettler Minor Lacrosse Association is a box lacrosse league the teams play indoors, usually in hockey arenas once the ice has been removed.

The league is open to boys and girls of all ages, from minitykes (six years and under) up to bantam (ages 13 to 15). Players are still welcome to join teams that still have spots available.

Currently the peewee (ages 11 and 12) and bantam (ages 13 and 14) teams are both looking for additional players.
