Training underway for Stealth team

Locals can watch Stealth scrimmages at the LEC.

The Vancouver Stealth’s training camp will open this month and run until the end of the year.

Training for the 40-member lacrosse team starts on Nov. 19th, with the big roster cut-down behind held on Thursday, Dec. 15.

That will reduce the team to 20 active players and four on the practice roster.

“We are looking forward to a fast-paced highly competitive camp where we will be evaluating every position,” said Stealth head coach Jamie Batley. “Our team will play an extremely up tempo style and we need to identify players who can play at that pace.”

The weekend training sessions will take place at the Langley Events Centre’s Fieldhouse and will be open and free to the public.

Sessions take place:

• Nov. 19, 9-11 a.m. and 6-8 p.m.

• Nov. 20, 9-11 a.m.

• Dec. 3, 9-11 a.m. and 6-8 p.m.

• Dec. 4, 9-11 a.m.

• Dec. 10, 9-11 a.m. and 6-8 p.m.

• Dec. 11, 9-11 a.m.

• Dec. 18, 9-11 a.m.

• Dec 30-31, times pending.

The Stealth will host two pre-season scrimmages including against the Calgary Roughnecks on Dec. 3 at 7 p.m. and against the NLL Champions Saskatchewan Rush at 9 a.m. on Dec. 4.

In addition to the two Stealth friendlies, the Langley Events Centre will play host to two other scrimmages over the same weekend with Saskatchewan taking on Colorado and the Roughnecks competing against the Mammoth.
