2023 SEASON INFORMATION
This First year North all Womens tournament is not to be missed! Get your team registered before April 25th to avoid missing out on the action!
The Beaumont Raiders Lacrosse Association is a member of the Greater Edmonton Lacrosse Council (GELC). www.gelc.ab.ca
The GELC is responsible for the administration of lacrosse programs for Edmonton and surrounding areas.
Communities that participate in league play are the Beaumont Raiders, Fort Saskatchewan Rebels, Leduc Crush, North Edmonton Wizards, Parkland Posse, Sherwood Park Titans, South Edmonton Warriors, St. Albert Rams, West Edmonton Blues, and Westlock Rock.
Associate members from Grande Prairie and Fort McMurray may also be participating at the U7 thru U17 levels, resulting in weekend games in the schedule against these teams.
This season you may notice a change to our division names and age groups, as well as, a change in labeling from "Male/Female" now to "Men/Women". This may seem strange to you based on the age groups of our athletes, but this change comes with guidance from Lacrosse Canada in promoting inclusiveness. The term "female" connotes a biological category, while "women" is a whole human person, making it technically a noun. The Beaumont Raiders are supporting the use of women as an adjective to achieve a more inclusive meaning that emphasizes gender over biological sex.
Typical Beaumont Raiders Minor Box Lacrosse Season
- The lacrosse season ends with city championship late June, and Provincials in early July.
- League play starts in mid-April with games scheduled by the GELC (Greater Edmonton Lacrosse Council) interlocked with other clubs in Edmonton and the surrounding area.
- Beaumont Raiders offers the following levels of women's lacrosse: U11, U13, U15, U17.
- U15 players are usually on the floor about 2-3 times per week (practices and/or games)
- Levels U11 and above are UNABLE to offer friend requests (teams need to be leveled). We will take reciprocal friend requests for U7 and U9 only. Every effort is made to form fair, balanced teams based on registration numbers and the skill level of players involved.
- All women divisions are leveled. They are evaluated to attempt a level of parity between teams if there are enough players for more than one team at each level.
