The 2011 Pre-Season clinics hosted by the Oakville Lady Hawks provided opportunities for all divisions - Mini-Hawks, Under 11, Under 13, Under 15 and Under 19 - to workout and learning beginning and experienced skills at the indoor fields at Burloak Sports Centre. Two fields for two hours this year made all the difference to run the clinics and host 90+ players weekly.
Guest coaches from Edge Lacrosse and Team Canada women's field programs supported Oakville coaches and players on two separate occasions. The girls loved listening to and learning from such elite athletes!
After a successful inaugural season in 2010, the Oakville Lady Hawks field lacrosse program is growing in 2011.
The gold-medal performance capped off a season of continual improvement for the U11 players, many in their first year of lacrosse. The squad of 23 girls, varying in age from seven to 10 years old, won two of 10 regular-season games but closed the gap on its opponents throughout its inaugural campaign.
Wally Tymkiv has a dream.
“Hopefully in Oakville in years to come, there will be households where mom and dad both have lacrosse sticks,” says Tymkiv, president of the Oakville Minor Lacrosse Association (OMLA). “Where lacrosse will be a family event, rather than just for the boys.”
