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 Tseil-Waututh Nations on the North Shore.

The Lacrosse Academy is open to students in grades 8-12. Vancouver. The program consists of a Lacrosse Curriculum, as set out by Tewanee Consulting and is in compliance with the BC Ministry of Education Prescribed Learning Outcomes for Physical and Health Education (PHE) 8-10 and Active Living 11-12. Students earn their grade-equivalent PHE/Active Living credit upon successful completion of the program.

Students enrolled at all secondary schools in North Vancouver will be eligible to attend, as the Academy will be scheduled in the afternoon to allow students to travel to Carson Graham. Please note: transportation to and from the Academy is the responsibility of the parent/guardian.
