Welcome to Sidewinders Box Lacrosse

Welcome to the Sidewinders 2018 Season. We are excited that you are here and interested in the fastest sport on two feet.

The Sidewinders Lacrosse Club is proud to provide a great sport experience for your son's and daughters. Teamwork, building friendships and great competition are what is helping our sport and Club grow. Each year, more players are choosing lacrosse as a Spring sport that helps them develop themselves, increase hand-eye coordination and participate on friendly, competitive teams.

Sidewinders are also very proud to have solid representation on multiple age-group Team MB teams over the years. This demonstrates that a strong Club experience and coaching will lead to the skills needed to play at higher levels. It all starts by getting out and playing.

Sidewinders Lacrosse History

In the year 2000 Sidewinders became the official name for all teams playing Lacrosse in the South Zone of the WMLA, now the RRLA. The initial organization was founded by Stewart Astleford, Lawrence Carpenter and Les Good. Over the years Andrew Jolly, Richard Del La Ronde, Serge Balcaen, Byron Bahniuk and Dwayne Gendzelevich have joined the Organization taking on various Board Positions. Each year we run a Discover Lacrosse Program for new players in Jan/Feb/Mar and a Pre-season camp in early Apr. to get our players ready for the season. We also host an annual PeeWee Tournament, The Jim Hunt Memorial Tournament, to honour Jim Hunt who gave so much to our Lacrosse Club but passed away in the spring of 2007.
