Chilliwack Hawks selling protective face masks as lacrosse club fundraiser

The local field lacrosse group hopes to have players back in action for two camps in July

The Chilliwack Hawks field lacrosse club hopes to get back to action soon, and when they do, there’s a good chance players will be wearing protective face masks.

The club is now selling re-usable masks as a fundraiser. They cost $10 apiece. There are three different styles available in two sizes, youth and adult.

“The fundraising goes right back to the parents to help reduce our registration costs for the season,” said Hawks president Tyler Crompton.

The Hawks have received guidelines from the B.C. Lacrosse Association and Chilliwack’s board has approved a new return to play policy.

Crompton said the Hawks are looking to have kids back on the field July 12 and 27 for two lacrosse camps, with details to be announced later this week.

The club plans to open registration in mid-July.
