The British Columbia Lacrosse Association (BCLA) and Port Coquitlam Lacrosse Club, in partnership with Lacrosse Canada, will host the Junior B Box Lacrosse National Championship from August 14-20 at the brand-new Port Coquitlam Community Centre.

The Saints last hosted this event in 2003 and look forward to hosting in 2023. The team first competed in the Founders Cup in 1982, when it was hosted at the Port Coquitlam Recreation Centre.

“Our club and community look forward to welcoming the rest of Canada to Port Coquitlam for this very prestigious National Championship,” said club President, Josh Wahl.

“The B.C. Lacrosse Association welcomes the competing junior lacrosse teams from all Lacrosse Canada Members,” said Gerry Van Beek, President of the BCLA. “We are proud that this event allows the showcasing of the development of junior lacrosse in B.C.”
