The Axemen are pleased to announce our programming for the summer of 2020. OUTSIDE THE BOX SUMMER EDITION
Schedule - Queensland Outdoor Pad - 649 Queensland Dr SE, Calgary, AB T2J 4S8
Program Starts Tuesday July 7th
There will be volunteers taking attendance, we ask that you be patient as we work through all these details to keep our Axemen Families safe & healthy.
Our organization will run a modified program with drills and scrimmages, while operating under the social-distancing guidelines outlined by AHS and the ALA.
We decided on this option as the best way to provide our members with lacrosse, while still allowing them to take part in other sports (including field lacrosse) and activities this summer where they need to adhere to the cohort group rules.
Our programming will run from the week of July 6 to the week of Aug. 16, for the 8U to 16U age groups. Unfortunately due to the Covid-19 rules, running a program for our little laxers - ages 6 and under - provides too many difficulties.
All sessions will be held at outdoor rinks (likely Queensland, Deer Ridge and possibly Maple Ridge, although we may utilize different rinks in the deep S.E.) to keep the costs down as we know this is a difficult time for some of our families. The $40 to register will cover the sanctioning fee from the ALA ($30.23), with the remainder being used for items such rentals on outdoor floors, hand sanitizer, etc.
The program will be designed and executed under the guidance of Colin Risi, our director of coaching, utilizing volunteer coaches, along with off-floor help to make sure we adhere to AHS and ALA guidelines.
