Minor lacrosse players in the region once again have an advanced level of play to strive towards. The Grande Prairie Thrashers Junior program was resurrected this year after a one year hiatus. Coach Chase Beatty admits his club is on the small side this year – both in size and in number of players.
“We only have probably one life of defence, a line of offence, and a couple of substitutes. It is going to be a rough year but this is basically just practice leading up to the next few years.”
The Thrashers – who play out of the Rocky Mountain Lacrosse League – are made up mostly of players from Grande Prairie, with a few from the Peace River region.
