He will demonstrate drills and exercises he likes to use and may be able to make some suggestions on how coaches can add these to their practices.

National Day of Truth and Reconciliation, September 30, 2021
In observance of this important day, the Burnaby Field Lacrosse Club has asked the teams choosing to hold practices this week to take the following actions:
- Land acknowledgment
We [I] would like to begin by acknowledging that the land on which we are fortunate to gather is the traditional and unceded territory of the Coast Salish peoples, including the territories of the Musqueam, Squamish, and Tsleil-Waututh Nations.
2. National Day of Truth and Reconciliation
As you may or may not know, lacrosse has its origins in a tribal game played by Indigenous peoples in what is now Canada and the United States. While hockey is Canada’s national winter sport, lacrosse is our national summer.
National Day for Truth and Reconciliation is an opportunity for us to recognize and reflect on the tragic history and ongoing legacy of residential schools, and to honour the survivors, their families and communities. Recent discoveries of the remains of children at the sites of former residential schools affirm what Indigenous peoples have been speaking about for decades. This grief and loss continue to impact the lives of Indigenous peoples and their families. Every child matters.
3. Minute of silence and reflection
Please ask your team to take a minute of silence to reflect on the significance of today.
- Encourage wearing of orange shirts
Please ask your team to wear orange shirts if they have them.
