The Digby Area Lacrosse Club already has 30 players signed up and there’s room for more.

The lacrosse club will be practicing every Thursday evening in age groups similar to hockey.

The club is open to youth aged 4 to 16.

There are clubs in Greenwood and Kentville and organizers are hoping to arrange jamboree style tournaments.

The club will hold its second registration at the Digby arena on Saturday, April 6 from 9 a.m. to 11 a.m. You can also stop by the Recreation Office until April 8 to register.

Players need a helmet and cage and hockey gloves—hockey gear is perfect.

Registration for mini-tykes, ages 4 to 6, costs $50 and they get a free stick and practice ball.

Tykes, ages 7 to 8 cost $60 and they get a free stick and practice ball.

Novice, Peewee, Bantam and Midget, ages 9 to 16, cost $75 and have to provide their own sticks plus the helmet, cage and hockey gloves. As well they will need special lacrosse rib protection and arm protection that will be available locally and should cost in the range of $25 each.

Each additional family member gets a $5 discount on registration.
