Prairie Gold Lacrosse League (PGLL)

The Prairie Gold Lacrosse League was established in 2001 to provide players with an opportunity to advance their skills after the minor level. The PGLL provides individuals with the opportunity advance their skills and many have gone on to play at a collegiate or pro-level. The PGLL not only develops players but it also gives officials and coaches an opportunity at a high caliber level to advance their knowledge and skills. This provides strong dividends to the Saskatchewan Lacrosse Association as many members in the senior division contribute back to Lacrosse as volunteers, coaches or officials. The PGLL is currently in a revitalization stage. New Board of Directors, website, logo and clothing merchandise has been established and a strategic plan will be developed in February of 2015 to provide consistency and steady growth for years to come.

Scorpion Lacrosse Field Lacrosse Program

The Scorpion Lacrosse Program was established to provide an enhanced level of coaching and competition for field lacrosse players in Saskatchewan. The focus of the program is to expand the development of young athletes by exposure to advanced offensive and defensive skill sets and game strategies.

The coaching staff consists of individuals with extensive field lacrosse experience at the post-collegiate and national level. Coaches work to build skill confidence at each position – attack, midfield, defense and goaltending. In addition to increased training and skill development, the team travels to compete in tournaments inside and outside of Canada. This allows athletes to be exposed to a variety of high level competitions and additional coaching styles. By attending tournaments in locations from New York to California, athletes also receive exposure to post-secondary school opportunities.

With a clear focus on skill development, decision-making and advanced game strategies, athletes increase their overall lacrosse IQ. The development of a strong lacrosse IQ has allowed athletes involved with the Scorpions to help Saskatchewan finish in the top three for close to a decade at the Canadian National Field Championships.
