A number of opportunities for women and girls to try out or play lacrosse are coming up in the next few weeks.

Any interested women (ages 15 and up) are welcome at Monday night drop-in sessions at the Cowichan Tribes Si’em Lelum Gym at 5574 River Road on Nov. 7 and 14 from 6-8 p.m. No equipment is required, and players of all levels of experience are welcome. The cost is $4.

“The first half hour of the women’s sessions will be scoping out the basics,” organizer Naomi Walser said. “If you’re brand new we’ll be able to show you everything you need to know to have some fun playing. We will be playing non-contact box lacrosse, and lots of mesh sticks will be available.”

For girls 12 and under, there are lacrosse nights at the Shawnigan Lake Recreation Centre Thursdays from 5:15-6:15 p.m. until Nov. 24. The sessions are free, but players need to register through the rec centre. Sticks are provided.

“The goal is to work toward building future teams to play in U12 and U15 Vancouver Island girls field lacrosse leagues in the fall,” Walser explained.
