Stealth partner with BCLA for travel grant program

$25,000 was raised through 50/50 sales and donation from Stealth owner

The Vancouver Stealth have partnered with the B.C. Lacrosse Association and the Lacrosse on the Move Fund Travel Grant for the upcoming season.

The Stealth-BCLA “Lacrosse on the Move” Travel Grant Program is funded through monies raised by BCLA volunteers selling 50-50 raffle tickets during Stealth home games.

“We are extremely pleased and excited to have professional lacrosse back in B.C., and we are looking forward to another season of professional lacrosse,” said Rochelle Winterton, the executive director of the BCLA.

“Their presence raises the profile of Canada’s National Summer Support in our province and throughout our communities.”

In 2014, the entire net profit of $25,000 including a donation by Stealth owner Denise Watkins, was granted to teams traveling to minor box lacrosse and youth field lacrosse provincial championships, with another portion going to athletes participating in Team BC who would otherwise not be afforded the opportunity.

“All of this money went directly back into lacrosse communities across B.C. and the BCLA membership is thankful for this support,” said Winterton.

There was a total of 29 minor box lacrosse teams, 18 youth field lacrosse teams, and 4 Team BC athletes who received grants in 2014.
