About the Lacrosse Academy

The North Vancouver School District's Lacrosse Academy, offered in partnership with Tewanee Consulting Group, provides skilled and experienced lacrosse coaches whose aim is to hone the skills required for success at field and box lacrosse, as well as to develop the values, skills, attitudes and knowledge needed to be healthy, active, global citizens. 

First declared the National Game of Canada in 1859, Lacrosse has multi-cultural history in our country, and the sport is becoming increasingly played internationally. It is currently played in over 50 countries world-wide.  Lacrosse also has longstanding significance as a sport to our local and national First Nations communities. The new BC Curriculum embeds First Nations Principles of Learning throughout all Core Curriculum subject areas.

The Lacrosse Academy will deepen students' knowledge and connections with additional Aboriginal cultural experiences and explore the successes of lacrosse champions from both the Squamish and Tsleil-Waututh Nations on the North Shore.

The program consists of the Lacrosse curriculum as set out by Tewanee Consulting Group and the Physical and Health Education curriculum established by the B.C Ministry of Education.

Students earn their grade level P.H.E. credit upon successful completion of the program.

The Lacrosse Academy is open to students in Grades 8-12.
