Lacrosse is Truly a Family Affair!
There are many great families involved in our game, and each of them devote so much time and effort to ensure their children get to and from games on time, respect their opponents and the game. Here is one such family that does just that and more.
Pictured above are the Sandhu Family. Dad, Kuldeep standing proudly with his Daughter, Pavleen and Son, Lahtaj.
Pavlene has been playing for two years and plays for the Blue Team in the Bantam Division. She says her favorite things about lacrosse is the physical nature of the game and making new friends. "Lots of good people to meet". Her highlight to date is going to last year's provincials as an add on player for the Midget Rep team. Her brother Lahtaj, in his third year, competes in the Novice Division for the Blue Team. He is the leading scorer on his team and the #2 leading scorer among all Novice Players.....a Star in the making!! Their Dad came to Canada when he was 11 years old and through the years fell in love with the Creator's Game. A love he now passes on to his children. And I am told there is another Sandhu ready to suit up next year, Pavlene and Lahtaj's little sister.
We are pleased to name the Sandhu Family as our "House League Family of the Week".

Here is a shot of our Bantam Team Red goaltender Mitchell Northrup alongside our Paperweight Goalie - Ireland Cooper. Mitchell took the time prior to his own game to let the Paperweights take breakaway shots at him, while giving some pointers to his little counterpart. A great example of a fine young man giving back to the sport he loves.
Lacrosse builds character, and Mitchell has illustrated that time and time again. And that makes him our "House League Player of the Week".
Thank you and Congratulations Mitchell.
