Bantam Provincials in Parksville!!

I have some very exciting news for those who haven’t heard it yet. For the first time ever and in partnership with Nanaimo we will be hosting the Bantam Provincials here in Parksville from July 13th-16th. Thirty Bantam teams (550 + families) from all over the province will be in our area for four or more days. This is a huge undertaking and a chance to highlight our sport in our community while showcasing our area to the BC lacrosse community. Most of the organizing is complete and now we need your help in a couple of ways!

We are looking for program sponsors and donations of prizes and services for this event. There are several levels of sponsorship and promotion available for this event. Please see the attached donation letter. We will need to provide food and beverages to all the volunteers and officials throughout the event. That is breakfast lunch and supper. There are some funds available for this but could really use some discounted or donated meals from area restaurants and resorts to help with this part. We will need prizes for raffles and are looking for two way radios to be able to communicate effectively throughout the event. If you or anyone you know has a business and would be willing to take out advertising in our program or donate products and services please contact Stephanie Cain (250) 954-7039 , Farrah Lewis (250) 927-1977 or myself directly (250) 248-7400 over the coming week or two.

We are also looking for volunteers and helpers to assist in various areas. We will need time keepers and people to work security in pairs in both arenas. People to help with the hospitality room, raffle tables, headquarters room and welcome table. You can watch some great lacrosse while volunteering a couple of hours of your time.

Best Regards

A Note from The Prez

Every year, our Shark Attack Tournament is the single largest fundraiser of the season. Hosting the Bantam Provincials for the first time ever will be the largest and most prestigious event in our history. We will be hosting 21 or more Tyke Teams from all over the Island and lower mainland from June 9th-11th. The Bantam Provincials will see upwards of 30 teams from all over the Province of BC come to our area from July 13th-16th. Those of us behind the scenes will do the heavy lifting of organizing and arranging everything. We need you all to take on shifts for both events to ensure their success. These events are a fun way to contribute to the sport in a small way!

For now, I will focus on the Provincials July 13th-16th. The very best teams in BC will be here to compete and possibly be crowned provincial champions. The positions that we will have to fill are Welcome Table, Raffle table, Time keeping for games at Oceanside Arena, Hospitality Suite, Headquarters Room and Security. Anywhere from 8am-8pm on said dates. We will also be looking for donations of products or services to raffle off. I myself could use a hand with planning and preparing a program to sell advertising space on. Depending on the number of helpers we get shifts could range from 1-4 hours. Please contact either Farrah Lewis at or Stephanie Cain at and cc myself to let us know your availability during provincials and what jobs you may be interested in? Farrah is starting a list of volunteers!

Best Regards
