You enthusiastically represented all of us in the Fraser Valley with your good sportsmanship, good attitudes and fun-loving spirit…We’re proud of you!

The Fraser Valley Lacrosse Club (FVLC) completed its inaugural season this past weekend by participating in the 2016 Colorado Lacrosse Jamboree at the Stenger Athletic Complex in Arvada, CO. In total, 45 kids from Winter Park, Fraser, Tabernash and Granby made up this season’s Fraser Valley Lacrosse Club roster. The boys’ teams and girls’ team participated in three scrimmages, one home and two away, leading up to the U9 and U11 boys’ teams’ participation in the Colorado Lacrosse Jamboree. Over all, the club participated in seven competitive opportunities. The Fraser Valley Lacrosse Club will continue with developmental programs for both the boys game and girls game through the summer and extends an invitation to boys and girls between the ages of 8 and 14, interested in lacrosse, to give it a try.
