ALL West Womens Combine recap

by Savanna Smith

On Nov. 26.2022 the Arena Lacrosse League West Womens Division welcomed 80 out of our 120 players to the Langley Field House to kick start the 2022-2023 season with the first ever combine. 

Players were pre-divided up into three groups and put through a session of skills and drills, followed by a scrimmage with their group. This allowed for coaches to fairly evaluate each of our players and goalies. From these evaluations the 2022-2023 league staff will get together for a draft to pick their players to make up our six teams.

The combine sparked international interest as we were joined by two members of the US women's box lacrosse team San Diego Palms, Amanda Chasin and Kelsey Cue. Special guest Michell Bowyer, a Team Canada alum and women's lacrosse advocate also attended.

Big shout out to our coaches who ran the Combine Ryley Brown, Kevin Wade, Brodie Tarling and Jack Margetson.

First games are scheduled for Dec. 10. 2022, we hope to see you there!

Keep your eyes open for the upcoming drafting of the teams, and the full season schedule release coming out this week!
