2020 Open Tryouts & Training Camp

Buckle up, lacrosse fans! The 2020 lacrosse season is just around the corner.

Within the coming months, the Guelph Regals Jr B Lacrosse Club will be in full swing as they try to build off of a season that featured 11 rookies and a narrow 1st Round playoff exit to the eventual Ontario Champions.

With a full roster returning plus the addition of some new faces and promising upcoming prospects, the 2020 Camp is bound to be the club’s most competitive in recent memory.

Any player interested in competing for a roster spot is welcome to attend. However, please note that if you are NOT a resident of Guelph, you will need permission to run from your home centre.  This includes all graduating midget players outside of Guelph or those who played on a Jr. C team last year.

2019 Tryout Dates Announced

The Guelph Jr. B Regals Lacrosse Club announced its first 5 dates of training camp for the 2019 season.

The club will hit the floor for its 28th season on Sunday, March 3, when new head coach Al Burton will have his first look at his new team. Burton, who had previously been at the helm of the Oakville Buzz Jr. B team, rounded out his coaching staff this week with two assistants that will be formally announced in the coming days.

The Regals are anticipating a competitive camp with several position battles.

“My philosophy is to ensure that everyone is competing hard for positions, whether you’re a veteran or rookie,” Burton said.

“We want to ensure that all players are being held accountable. I’m not coming in with a hard line disciplinary approach. However, it’s a highly motivated firm but fair approach. On the first day of camp, every team in the league is in first place.”

The first 5 tryout dates are:

Sun. March 3 | 12 – 2 PM

Sun. March 10 | 1:30 – 3:30 PM

Sun. March 17 | 1:30 – 3:30 PM

Sun. March 24 | 10 AM – 12 PM

Sun. March 31 | 3:30 – 5 PM

Additional camp dates and exhibition games will be announced in the near future.

The camp is open to all interested players who were born between 2002 and 1998. If you are interested in attending the camp and do not reside in Guelph, a Permission to Run letter will be required from your home association before being permitted to step on the floor.

Speed, Aggression a focus for Regals

By Rob Massey, Guelph Sports Journal

KITCHENER – The Guelph Regals figure on being a young squad in this Ontario junior B lacrosse league season and they hope to use that youth to increase their speed and aggression.

“We’re going to have a young team and be fast and aggressive and exciting,” coach Keith Begley said following Saturday’s training camp session at Queensmount Arena. “They’re all very energetic and they want to be here. That’s one of the biggest hurdles for a coach, having kids that want to play. If you’ve got that, you can work with them. If not, it’s a lot different.”
