Wondering what division to register your child in?
The Cranbrook Lacrosse Association is excited to announce their new name and logo, the Cranbrook Blackwolves (ka·kin). This release marks the end of the Cranbrook Outlaws and brings in a new era with the Lacrosse club. The Cranbrook Blackwolves name and logo allow the Cranbrook Lacrosse Association to adopt many aspects, both direct and subtle, that align with the Indigenous roots of the game and to utilize a name that has much meaning within the Indigenous Community. The Wolf is a sacred animal within almost every Indigenous circle in North America. The Wolf is often thought to represent Loyalty, Strength, Strong Family Ties, Intelligence and Discipline. The Black Wolf often strikes fear because of its majestic look, and many agree that the Black Wolf is the most intimidating of all the wolves.
The Cranbrook Lacrosse Association has initiated discussions with the Ktunaxa Indigenous people to develop an understanding of the place that the Creators Game holds within our area’s history. Cranbrook Lacrosse is not only committed to the long-term development of lacrosse within our Indigenous Community, but to ensure that they seek appropriate advice on being culturally respectful and appropriate.
“It was time for our organization, that promotes and plays this beautiful Indigenous rooted game, to take the next step in honoring and respecting its history and to develop a closer relationship with the sports local stewards” commented Cranbrook Lacrosse Association president Barb Stevenson.
“ʔaq̓am is pleased to collaborate with the Cranbrook Lacrosse Association and create a meaningful partnership that will honour our ancestors and their relationships with ?amak?is Ktunaxa.” - Bonnie Harvey

The Cranbrook Lacrosse Association is dedicated to provide a youth sports experience for boys and girls that builds character and camaraderie which will last a lifetime.
We are committed to teaching the fundamental skills and rules of the game along with good sportsmanship and integrity.
The players and coaches are encouraged to uphold these attributes both on and off the floor.
Our season is based on tournament play. We generally attend 3 tournaments over the course of season as an organization -meaning all levels (with the exception of Tyke and mini-Tyke) will attend the same tournaments on the same dates. This is very beneficial to families with more than one child playing.
