St Albert Rams Lacrosse Club registration is open

Lacrosse is a great off-season sport for ringette.  It is very fast, promotes a high level of fitness, and improves eye-hand coordinate. 

Lacrosse is similar to ringette in that box lacrosse is a five-on-five game played in an arena with goalies.  There has been a lot of recent research and discussion regarding sport specialization and the advantages of being a multi-sport athlete.   

Lacrosse has a lot of transferable skills to ringette and vice versa and it is also our National Summer Sport.  Below are a couple of hockey links that speak to the benefits of lacrosse as an off season sport to hockey.  A lot of NHL players played lacrosse and promote the benefits of lacrosse, including Wayne Gretzky.  A list of some of these NHL players is included in the second link.
