The Ravens are sure to come out with energy, anticipation and excitement for the season opener against Westshore on Sun,, May 1st, 3:30 p.m. at Rod Brind’ Amour Arena.  There’s no doubt the Bears and Ravens will provide a fast paced, action packed game to start the regular season.

The 2011 Ravens are a young team, a mix of talented rookies from last year’s midget A2 team along with experienced players of one to three years at the junior level. Veteran players this year will be Chris Vaux playing transition and Connor McLeod on defence, and Hayden Smith and Eddy Lawson are back to join the Ravens after playing the last two seasons in Nanaimo.  The 2011 roster also includes brothers Matt and Chris Lund as they share the floor alongside Chris and Kurtis Vaux as the Ravens stretch the roster over two local families.

Come on out to support the Ravens junior lacrosse team in their season opener.  Minor Ravens players get in free wearing their jersey. General admission is $3.00.
