The Estevan Voltz Lacrosse season continues this weekend with a pair of teams hosting a pair of games.
Estevan's U16 squad welcomes Standing Buffalo at 12:30 p.m. Saturday and Moose Jaw at 4:30 p.m.
The 10U Voltz take on Standing Buffalo at 11 a.m. and Moose Jaw at 4:30 p.m.
All games are at the Power Dodge Arena.
Estevan Voltz Lacrosse President Jase Malaryk said the organization is still gaining traction after being hit by the pandemic.
"COVID really hurt us," he said. "Being off for two years hurt our numbers. So we're still trying to grow. Definitely looking for more kids."
One of the selling points Malaryk mentioned is the role lacrosse can have at improving athletes' abilities in Canada's other national sport.
"It's a really good sport. Cross-play with hockey, it helps your hand-eye coordination."
The National Hockey League's all-time scoring leader, Wayne Gretzky, and Toronto Maple Leafs Captain John Tavares are both vocal advocates for how much lacrosse can help hockey attributes such as vision and hand-eye coordination.
"It's really nice hearing about the NHL players really pushing the sport of lacrosse," said Malaryk.
The Voltz also have 14U and 6U teams. Malaryk said they're working on building a pipeline of younger players to feed into the older ranks.
