Frequently Asked Questions:

Q: When does the fall season start and end?

A: The boys begin Friday, September 8, 2017.  The girls begin Sunday, September 10, 2017.

Q: Where do we practice?

A: Westmount High School and King George Park (also in Westmount).

Q: Is it true that boys goalies play the entire season for 99 CENTS?

A: Yes. Unlike many programs, which have a surfeit of interest in the goalie position, we only have a handful of aspiring net minders.  So the Lynx have decided to continue their economic incentive for the first six players who sign up a to play goalie each season.  You play the whole season for $0.99.  No strings attached.  Everything is included in your $0.99 registration fee, including uniforms, outstanding coaching, and most of the equipment.  If we have more than one goalie at each age group (which is our plan), you will share the position, playing half the practices and games in the net and half at another position.  It is the best way to learn the game of lacrosse, to play a variety of positions.  Your coaching staff has a few goalies and back-up goalies and we can attest how fun it is and how much your game will improve when you pick up the big stick.

Q: How are the Fall 2017 age groups broken down?

A: For the boys, we welcome ages 8-16 and we are planning four age groups for them.

Team 1: Born in 2007, 2008, and 2009

Team 2: Born in 2005 and 2006

Team 3: Born in 2003 and 2004

Team 4: Born in 2001 and 2002

Q: Is this field lacrosse or box lacrosse or both?

A: In the fall, we only play field lacrosse. In the spring, we integrate box lacrosse into the program for the boys at the lower three age groups.

Q: How many days a week do we practice or play games?

A: For the boys, we practice or play games three days a week.

Q: Where can I buy equipment?

A: Locally, you can go out to Stinger Sport in Pt. Claire.  Alternatively, you can order online at a retailer like lax.com or lacrossemonkey.com.

Q: How can I get better and prepare for the season?

A: Number one, you should start the season in shape.  Run sprints, lift weights (older players), do agility drills, play other sports.  And number two, play wall ball!  http://beginnerlacrosse.com/lacrosse-wall-ball.asp.  Email Coach Z if you have specific questions.

A: Go to the “Register here!” tab of this web site.  Click the red button and you are on your way.
