Posted: March 10, 2012 by marksy in Latest News, Main

The Whitby Warriors Junior C Lacrosse Club announced their tryout dates and regular season schedule for the 2012 season.  To see all dates, click the links at the top of this page.

The Warriors have all but 2 players that are eleigible to return for the 2012 season.  Team Captain Chase Simpson and twin brother (Assistant Captain) Cody are the only graduating players from last years squad.  With a crop of graduating Midget players, as well as the hopeful return of some Intermediate players who had a one year release to Oshawa, the Coaching Staff is optimistic they will see a very solid product on the floor this season.

“There are a number of graduating Midgets that I know very well, and a few could easily walk in here and not miss a beat” said Head Coach Gary Mark.  “But it is a big jump from a 45 minute straight time minor game, to a 60 minute stop time Junior game.  It will be very interesting though and the staff is very eager to get going.  We also have a few players that are in school and of course there are some openings on the Warriors “A” and the Green Gaels “B” to consider.”

One thing that Mark is very pleased about is the return of an Intermediate team in Whitby for 2012.  “It really hurt Whitby Minor Lacrosse and us to not have an Intermediate team in 2011.  Without an affilliate we were sometimes stuck and playing with a short bench on a few nights last year.  But John Phillips, who I have worked well with in past seasons, has stepped up and will be Coaching the Warriors Intermediate.  That competition and our ability to access more players will be a good thing for all of us.”

The Warriors will again participate in the pre-season tournament held in Kingston.  The date for that event is set for Saturday April 28, and Sunday April 29.

Tryout costs will be  a flat $50 and all players / goalies are guaranteed the first 3 sessions.  Dates / times / locations are as follows:

Saturday April 14 3pm – 4:30pm Iroquois Park Pad # 1
Sunday April 15 3pm – 4:30pm Iroquois Park Pad # 1
