Excelsiors Looking For Sponsorship

The Excelsiors are looking for businesses to sponsor our team for the 2017 season.  As Canada celebrates its 150th birthday lacrosse has grown right along with the country.

History
Lacrosse was first played by indigenous people of the Six Nations, the Great Lakes region and the south-eastern United States. The game has great spiritual significance. In earlier times, it was also used as preparation, or as replacement for open warfare. It could be used for healing purposes or to influence the weather. An indoor version of the sport called box lacrosse, which combined ice hockey and field lacrosse, was created in the 1930’s. Lacrosse was confirmed by Parliament as the National Summer Sport of Canada in 1994. In the summer of 2017, it will celebrate its 150th anniversary as the sport originally defined by William George Beers, making it one of the oldest organized sports in the country. (See https://www.participaction.com/en-ca/programs/participaction-150-play-list/activities/lacrosse for further details).

If you or if you know someone who is able to help us out with sponsorship this season please see the attached document for all the details.  2017-major-sponsorship
