Season registration includes local intersquad games designed to teach 8U to 19U players to compete in a structured, safe, and fun environment in preparation for optional Field Day competitions.

ELEV8 coaching staff will be on the field providing position specific training that address the intricacies of each position and increases players’ overall lacrosse IQ.

Overview And Experience

The Calgary Field Lacrosse Club provides players with as many local training opportunities as possible to play and develop while offering competition and gameplay against and with players to ultimately grow and test their skills and lacrosse IQ while having fun!

High energy games will be competitive and fun! ELEV8 coaches will be on hand to referee, coach and manage the benches.

How it Works

We understand players and families have a variety of commitments during the summer months. The Calgary Field season format is the most effective way to manage absences. 
 
Once players have registered for the season, they will be asked to register separately for each of the local Inter-squads at no extra cost. ELEV8 Coaching staff will draft players into Inter-squad teams depending on interest for that game.
 
Players will receive their team assignment and schedule 2 – 3 days prior to the start of each Inter-squad game.
 
Teams are selected with competitive equality as the first priority. These games are designed to allow players another opportunity to play lacrosse in a fun, up tempo and competitive environment. Games will cater to a deeper understanding of field lacrosse .

Leaving Places Better Than we Found Them

As a grassroots and community club, we believe in leaving places better than we found them. Every intersquad game throughout the season is themed with a community initiative, to demonstrate and teach student-athletes that you are never too small to be effective, helpful, and impact the world in a significant way.

INTERSQUAD THEMES WILL
BE SUSPENDED IN 2020 DUE TO COVID-19

Hunger Games

The Hunger Games inter-squads collect non-perishable food for families and individuals in need and donates them to the Calgary Food Bank. Last summer the Calgary Field community donated 800 lbs of food. We are confident that our community will exceed last year’s total and respond generously to those in need. 

You can support the food drive during this inter-squad by dropping off non-perishable food items at our check-in tent on the intre-squad date!

Gladiator Games

Gladiator intersquads collect new and gently used sports sports equipment for the Comrie’s Sports Bank, a KidSport Calgary Program.    The organization gathers, recycles and redistributes new and used sport equipment at no cost to kids who would otherwise be denied the opportunity to participate.

SuperHeros

SuperHero intersquads collect back to school supplies for the CBE initiative, Backpacks for Kids, who delivers school supplies for children whose families might not otherwise be able to provide supplies that their children need for the beginning of school. Last Summer, the Calgary Field Lacrosse club and ELEV8 Lacrosse donated 55 backpacks to Backpacks for Kids, we have a goal of donating 75 backpacks this summer!
