The National Lacrosse League is coming back to the Langley Events Centre on December 7 to 9, 2012.  Following in the footsteps of last year’s sold out event, this year’s game on December 8, featuring the Calgary Roughnecks and Colorado Mammoth, promises to be another ‘can’t miss’ weekend for lacrosse players, coaches and fans alike.  The game will feature some of the game’s premier stars in John Grant Jr. (Colorado), Gavin Prout (Colorado), Scott Ranger (Calgary) and Shawn Evans (Calgary).

“The National Lacrosse League is pleased to have Langley Events Centre host a second preseason game following the great success of last year’s event”, said Brian Lemon, NLL VP of Operations.

Once again, the weekend will be more than just the game.  The 2nd Annual Coaches Chalk Talk will take place on the Friday evening (December 7, 2012) which will be followed by a social.  Coaches from both the Roughnecks and Mammoth will host the clinic in conjunction with team practices, allowing coaches to see first-hand how the professionals treat training.  On the Saturday, there will be four players’ clinics where young lacrosse hopefuls will have the chance to register in advance for, and learn from the best in business on the turf at the LEC.

“Last year was a tremendous success for everyone involved,” Jared Harman, Director of Business Development at the LEC noted, “we wanted to duplicate the excitement and increase the clinics to give everyone more of a chance to get involved in the event.”

Following the game fans will be able to take part in a free autograph session on the turf featuring the full rosters from both teams.  The autograph session will be followed by a social in the LEC Banquet Hall with the players.

The lacrosse community has once again provided its full support, lead by the BC Lacrosse Association, and is excited to once again see the sports best competing in the Fraser Valley.

"The BC Lacrosse Association is excited to see the return of professional lacrosse to BC and the Langley Events Centre," stated BCLA President Sohen Gill.  "Lacrosse has deep roots in this community and many fans follow the homegrown talent in the National Lacrosse League.  With the great support and fanfare leading up to this event, hopefully one day the NLL will return to BC permanently."
