Arena Concerns
Welcome to another season of Pacer Lacrosse.  As our season gets underway, there are a few important reminders that need to be shared with all Parents/Guardians and Players. Whether your player is a part of our Fundamentals program, our U7 team all the way up to our 17 team, we need to be respectful to the arenas we play in and the various workers that support our season.

Before practices and games, during Jr. B events where you are there watching or any other special lacrosse events, you and your player represents SARNIA MINOR LACROSSE.

Please keep in mind, parents are ultimately responsible for their child. Children should not be running around the arena. They are there to participate in lacrosse play or as a spectator. 

Patrons should be cleaning up after themselves; garbage has been left lying on the benches and floors.

Each player signed a Player Code of Conduct which stated that balls would NOT be thrown in hallways and dressing rooms; yet this continues to happen both at Clearwater and Point Edward. The workers have spoken to various players and their families and have been met with resistance.  This is a RULE in ALL arenas in Ontario during both hockey and lacrosse seasons. 

The snack bar area is just that, a snack bar where patrons stand in line and order from the concession; it's not an area for kids to "hang out" and play tag; both of which have been reported.

Finally, floor time is designated to begin upon the hour. Under NO circumstance should players be on the floor before their scheduled floor time, without the supervision of a CARDED COACH.  Parents are NOT permitted to claim they are supervising their child who goes on the floor early. Furthemore, a helmet MUST BE WORN AT ALL TIMES ON THE FLOOR. This means that when you take your child to a Jr. Pacer game and they want to be on the floor during the intermission, they must wear a helmet. NO QUESTIONS ASKED. This is for safety and insurance purposes.

There will be ZERO tolerance for disrespect of Arena Employees.  Any and all concerns can be directed to Steph Dunlop, President at [email protected]

Thank you for your attention and understanding; let's keep our arena staff happy so we have many more Pacer events and seasons to come!
