WCW CLUB FAQ'S
Q: What does being non-profit mean?
A: The West Coast Wolves Lacrosse Club is a non-profit registered under the British Columbia Society Act. We don't believe sport for minor aged kids should be driven by profit. Simply, we put 100% of our fees collected back into developing players for the love and fun of sport.
Q: How do you support and not compete with local minor associations for players?
A: Its a great question. There are many types of travel programs out there, Wolves is a very different type of program, one that values, respects and supports the role minor associations play.
- our players must be registered and playing for a local minor association to qualify for the Wolves
- our players must attend their local minor team's events over a Wolves event
- our coaches must be CLA / BCLA certified and be giving back as volunteer coaches or executive members within a local minor association.
- we work with minor community based associations to provide development and programming for youth lacrosse athletes through camps, jamborees and other events.
Q: Are you affiliated with the BC Lacrosse Association (BCLA)?
A: We are not a BCLA member, only local community based lacrosse associations are. However, for our select travel teams we do obtain BCLA travel permits which are approved and signed off by the local community associations and the BCLA. We follow key policies such as Fair Play and Code of Conduct. Importantly a founding principle of our program is to respect and enhance community lacrosse associations and to not compete with them for players. Matter of fact, not only do we select the top players available we require Wolves players to be registered and playing with their local community association as a qualifier to being a Wolf.
