Registration for the 2019 Dartmouth Bandits season is coming soon!
The season runs from mid-April for pre-season workouts to approximately mid-July. There will be 14 games and weekly practices. Games will mostly be played at the Dartmouth 4-Pad and Shearwater Arena in Dartmouth, with other local arenas such as BMO Centre, Sackville, Truro and the Halifax Forum hosting games as well. There is a tournament in June in the Valley which is well attended and great fun.
The 2019 season will consist of 10 games for Tykes and 14 for Novice, Peewee, Bantam and Midget
Tykes are 2011 and 2012 birth years, Novice (Co-Ed and Girls) are 2009 and 2010, Peewee (Co-Ed and Girls) are 2007 and 2008, Bantam (Co-Ed and Girls) is 2005 and 2006, Midget (Co-Ed and Girls) is 2003 and 2004.
Gear is quite similar to Ringette and Hockey, with the shoulder pads, cup/jill, helmet, mask and mouth guard transferring. One can get away with hockey/ringette gloves, but lacrosse gloves which are a bit smaller are more comfortable. Additional equipment is the stick, arm pads and kidney/back pads. This is all available at Sportswheels, Prodigy Sports, Cleve’s and online.
Lacrosse is a great game which complements Ringette and Hockey. It is a fun way to stay active and meet new friends while competing!
