March 23 Update on RRLA Box Lacrosse Season
Our club is in continual contact with the Board of the RRLA in regards to the upcoming potential season for box lacrosse. As of today (Mar 23) there is no further update as we all await the timing of things such as school re-openings as well as other sports re-starting.
We encourage everyone to please still register for the upcoming season in order that we can get a head start on things once final decisions are made on this season. No payments will be processed until decisions are made, but we would like to be able to get team numbers confirmed in order to make plans when we can.
Thank you for your continued support of Sidewinders. Stay healthy and well.
As per the decision of Manitoba Lacrosse Association and Red River Lacrosse Association (to suspend all activities until further notice due to the Covid-19 virus), we will be postponing our last Discover session until a later time.
This decision will also put our 4x4 camps on hold until more information is known. The Sidewinders along with the MLA and the RRLA will be working in the background preparing for our season to begin.
Our registrations will remain open and we encourage you to still sign up. We hope that the season will be going forward in whatever format this current situation will allow us.
We are in complete agreement with the MLA and the RRLAs decision; the safety of our players and families must come first in these uncertain times. More information will come out as it is known.

Welcome to the Sidewinders 2020 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.
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.
