Weyburn Rattlers Field Lacrosse!

Jun. 01, 2024

**Lacrosse doesn’t have to end in July!**

The Weyburn Lacrosse Association is thrilled to announce that Registration for Rattlers Field Lacrosse will be opening June 1st.

Field Lacrosse is played on the grass. Practices will be held at Jubilee Park and inside at the Spark Centre when the weather doesn't cooperate. 

The Field Lacrosse season will run from mid-August to Late September/early October depending on age groups.

Fees will be: U7 - $75, U9/U11 - $100, U13/U15/U17/U20 - $150

"Field lacrosse is a great team sport to improve physical conditioning/strength, footwork, stick skills, positional play, etc. It complements box skills and is great prep for any upcoming winter sports." -Rattlers Coach Charles Hignett


Since most of our families are familiar with box lacrosse, here are some of the differences between field and box lacrosse:

  1 - Positions:

  · Attack typically stays in the offensive end of the field trying to score goals

  · Midfielders play both offense and defense

  · Defense prevents the opposition from scoring goals and transition the ball out of our zone

  · Goalie prevents goals. They do wear more equipment than the rest of the field positions but less than in box lacrosse

2 - Number of Players: Younger age groups (up to U13) consist of 7 players on the field at one time and U15 and older would have 10 players. Those 10 would be 3 Attack, 3 Midfielders, 3 Defense and 1 Goalie.

3 - Equipment is very close to box except no kidney belt or bicep guards are needed. Cleats are recommended for traction. Defensive players are allowed to use a longer stick (D-pole) to defend their zone.

4 - There is no shot clock so you have lots of time set up offensive opportunities

5 - The game is full contact but typically not as physical as box as there is way more space on the field. Cross checking is not allowed and you can only slash to the stick/hands. Body contact is allowed on the ball carrier and on loose balls.

6 - There are no league games like U11-U17 in box. The program is set up to have festivals (tournaments) on weekends in different communities. This schedule has not been released yet.


***Weyburn Lacrosse is looking for expressions of interest from athletes, coaches and families so we can begin our planning. (This is not a commitment to your child playing.) Please take a moment to do the quick survey below if your child plans to register or if you have interest in volunteering as a Coach, Manager, Trainer or Official. Please fill in one survey per person.


Please reach out to the Rattlers Field Coordinator, Chuck Hignett at rattlers@weyburnlax.ca if you have any questions about the Field Lacrosse program or if you would be interested in learning to coach or officiate field lacrosse. Training and mentorship will be provided
